Every story needs a beginning and that is why I begin every December Daily with a title page and a manifesto. I may add a few embellies to the manifesto.
Day 1 | The story of the day was the posting of the Christmas cards going overseas. I posted early because of the upcoming postal strikes.
Day 2 | The stories of the day involved cranberries and a school disco. I made an interactive element using a card blank and a trimmed down journaling card. Tucked away in the back pocket is a leaflet about posting dates and tickets from the school’s raffle.
Day 3 | The story of the day was our annual drinks party. I included our invitation, two photos and a journaling card, which went behind the window. I added a clip with a flourish, so it would be obvious that there was something else behind the visible photo.
Day 4 | The story of the day was brunch at one of our favourite pubs with The Best Friend and her children. I included a large photo of the pub’s wood burning stove and festive mantel.
Day 5 | The story of the day was yet more gift wrapping. I haven’t decided if I will add any further embellishments.
December Daily | my favourite project of the year.
