One week in and things are going well for my December Daily Challenge. I am actually up-to-date (you can see the actual pages here)! It’s been really fun to dig through my supplies, but also to see the colour scheme I am clearly drawn to: brown, red, and cream with multiple shades of green. In preparation for this project, I created a loose list of possible topics based on events I knew I was already committed to and have been filing in the holes with more day-to-day activities. I’m not sure how I am going to handle things once we are on the road, but for now, this is my favourite challenge yet!
Yes, Halloween has been over for about 10 minutes. Bear with me.
This has been the year of month-long challenges. Self-Stiched September, a hot-yoga challenge (7 days left!) and now, I’m gearing up for December Daily. This is a scrapbooking challenge, which is something I haven’t done in a long time (you can see some of my pages here). The part I like about this challenge is that you do as much before December as possible, so that during the busy times all you need to do is take a daily photo. I’m using this challenge as a means to use up whatever craft supplies I have lying around. I assembled 31 pieces of Christmas-appropriate paper and now have the rest of the month to squirrel away magazine clippings, pins, and various other ephemera to complete it with.
Okay December. I can wait. For now.
There is an annual real/fake tree debate in our house, which is why we have yet to buy a full-size tree of either kind. We always end up travelling, so this little guy works for now. Although, I forget the dimensions over the course of the year and am always shocked when we put it up. I end up looking for the non-existent piece I’m sure we are missing. I love coming home and seeing the top of the tree just peeking out the window, like some kind of puppy eagerly awaiting our return.
