My little December Daily album project is rolling along and can I just say this: the 3 x 8 album is perfection for a project like this! Seriously. For the type of memory keeping I like to do, especially during a time with less hustle and bustle in our lives, it’s perfect. Here are the next few entries.
A simple Sunday and a simple spread. I showed how to create the tree card on Instagram last week:
I love the simplicity of the design. SO easy to do with any type of die cut, really.
I’d like to give a shout out to my mother-in-law, Joan, for indulging the holiday selfie. It’s the least she can do in exchange for her daughter-in-law’s design services.
For Day 11, I snagged a few Snapchats exchanged between me and Aidan. A screen shot is the perfect resolution for a 3 x 4 pocket and I just converted them to black and white for a bit more uniformity.
Day 12 was a little story about me and perhaps eating and drinking a bit TOO merry of late. Mama is making changes, starting about four days ago.
On Day 13, my Mom sent me some photos of their tree in Henderson, Nevada, where they have lived for many years. The old ornaments on the tree were the trigger for this story, something I’m not even sure my parents know. I’ll have to wait and see if my Mom reads this.
And Day 14 was all about the hygge. Yes, we Americans have embraced this Danish concept. Not familiar with it? (And it is pronounced ‘hue-guh’). It is by definition a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture). One of my friends who I had dinner with it had an email that said in the subject “Gettin’ hygge with it.” Cue Big Willy Smith now.
One of the things I strive for is no real album bulk. It’s a personal preference, but when I look back at my EARLY albums, that are full of chunky embellishments (I am not talking DD albums, friends, but old general scrapbooks), those chunky things have left marks in the page protectors. I think I figured out my style pretty early on, so… minimal embellishments are being used for this project.
And I love this manageable size, because I’m finding it VERY easy to keep up with! I’ll be sharing more in the next few days! Thanks for stopping by!
