Documenting December

Season Greetings!

December is here and I hope you plan on capturing every minute of it.  Too busy, too overwhelmed, too much month than money!  Those can be all the feeling we feel during the month of December and we begin not to enjoy it.  Let me propose this…Document your December!

There are several ways including December  Daily, Journal your Christmas or create your own.

Too busy-

write on a 3 x 4 card every day and file it

Take one photo a day-once December it over print it or make a digital album

Have your family each take a turn a write something every day

You can do it!

This is my second year documenting my  December mixing Journal Your Christmas with my own ideas.   I purchased my supplies last year and alas the season is upon us…did I say I was ready.

To tackle this busy month with ease here’s my plan

Keep all your Christmas delights together

Use a smaller album-8 x 8 Album(So much fun last year used three 6 x 8 albums just for one Month!)

Uniform your Dates-Thickers, handwritten, date stamp

My Collections this year is Santa’s List by Theresa Collins.  (I purchase my Christmas Collections the year before when they are marked down:))

Supplies organized, condensed and ready

I adore little tags, boxes and different size pages…nothing is off limits.  Here I embossed a bag off center so I can hole punch the bag and add it as a page.

Bits and Bob-I wanted to add some brads and banners  to bring out page more.

My dates will be date stamped this year for uniformity.  I also added snowflake veneers to play off of the snowflakes on the file folder.

After printing my Manifesto I rounded the corners

Fil in the rest of my embellishments and added my title.  I often like to cut out my titles 3 times for more depth and texture.

Yup you can stamp right on your wood veneers.

Family

Hello there! Here is a card I made for a dear friend.  See I have never met the person but yet he is my brother.  We have many things in common even though we don’t actually know each other.  He is my brother in Christ, who has been recently healed of cancer.  Happy Birthday Michael!  May God grant you many more.

Dad’s Day

Fathers Day is fast approaching, it’s Sunday, June 17. It brought to mind the story of The Parable of the Lost Son or as we commonly refer to it as the Prodigal Son.  If you are not familiar with it here is a link to it Luke15:11-32, courtesy of Biblegateway.  No time to read you can also listen!  Even after his son left hastily, and squandered his possession  the father waited for his return daily, as Christ waits for our return from sin back to Him.  With that said,  I have been feverishly working on cards for Dads, Step Dads, Uncles, Nephews  I felt like Wanda from in living color…..I got u!  I will be posting fathers day cards all this week , take a peek.

Bustin’ Loose

This morning a fellow train rider was sitting on the train, snoozing as most do with her purse in a choke hold on her lap.  The train makes a few more stops as passengers board they begin to stand. I looked up and followed the eyes of one standing gentleman.  Nornally he’s reading, just like today he has his book in his hand…but he is looking at something.  I follow his eyes remember the sitting passenger….you know with her purse  on her lap.  Well the purse had become a pedestal for the bust!  Hence they were bustin’ loose.  Just a reminder for me to remember that we represent God not only on Sundays but everyday.  Would my dress cause someone ot stumble.  If Jesus were to comeback today right now, would I be ashamed?
