I finished my december daily album this weekend (last years). It feels good to have it done and even though it’s definitely not perfect it will most certainly serve as a reminder for our family of december 2011. I really enjoyed cutting and sticking – haven’t done it properly in a while and I think I should get started on some scrapbooking for Grier, lest I succumb to second child lazy mother syndrome (I just made that up).
I used some chipboard I had already to put together the covers and used a mixture of paper I already had along with this kit Lost and Found Christmas from My Minds Eye. I made up the basic book pages in november and this year was the first that I typed out my journalling and I like it. I also didn’t ‘do’ a page every day in december. I saved the each days journalling and printed it off when I was ready to put it altogether and had my photos printed by Tesco. It only took me a few evenings to complete it and it took away some of the pressure to spend a lot of time on it everyday during december. I harbour dreams of my children looking through these lovingly prepared albums, although I suspect the reality might be harumphing and eye rolling about how embarrassing I am.
