Welcome to December Daily; my favourite project of the year. Let’s begin by seeing what my hopes and dreams for this Christmas season look like …
My manifesto for December Daily 2018 came down to just a few sentences (and they were inspired by the ever-brilliant Ali Edwards): December, welcome back! Twenty five days in which to enjoy the everyday gifts on offer. Twenty five days in which to take notice of all the small stories making up the whole. Twenty five days in which to practice living our best lives. Twenty five days in which to be thankful. ‘Tis the season. ~ 2018.

Day 1 was all about our annual Non Christmas Christmas Party – the one I said I wasn’t doing this year … and, as is previous years, I was extremely light on photos. The few that I did have, I printed and added to the envelope holding the invitation. I also included a 4×4 journaling card listing what there was to eat and drink.
Day 2 was about lunch and film club. I made a folded insert to hold four 3×4 photos, using washi tape to make a small indicator tag (informing the viewer that there was more to see). Gold alphas and a wooden star finished things off. (There’s a post about Film Club appearing early next week.)
Day 3 was about trying to donate to the Metropolitan Police’s Christmas Appeal. The donation didn’t go to plan … our local police station is no longer open to the public.Day 4 was about the first batch of Cranberry Sauce. Day 5 was about meeting our friend who was over from Spain for supper and present swaps at the pub. December Daily | my favourite project of the year.
