December Daily is off and running and I’m using the mini book I made recently to record twenty five stories of our Christmas season. Additional journaling cards are from In a Creative Bubble.
Day 11 | The story of the day was visiting the Knightsbridge to see the Christmas decorations. I made a flip card to house a small concertina strip of photos
Day 12 | The story of the day was an unexpected fall of snow in West London. I added an acetate sheet decorated with snowflakes and placed that over a window pocket full of snowy photos.
Day 13 | The story of the day was the legendary double-edition of the Radio Times going on sale and a flu jab. The journaling tag is tucked behind the photo and I added embroidery thread so it would be easier to slide out. You may have noticed that the Christmas tree paper is upside down.
Day 14 | The story of the day was The Boy’s Christmas Concert at school. I only have video of the concert, so I added a photo of The Boy having a celebratory gingerbread latté and tucked the journaling behind the photo.
Day 15 | The story of the day was a festive Afternoon Tea followed by the Carol Service at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea. I used one of the large pocket pages and stuffed it with photos and a journaling card.
December Daily | my favourite project of the year.

So much fun with this new style of DD. Tilly does look like she is saying to you about the 12th’s snow “Mum, what is this?” . Oh a gingerbread latte does some like a reward. 🙂 For Day 15, the Afternoon Tea adventure – a large tasty cinnamon roll? I am trying a new to me recipe for cinnamon rolls where at the end just before popping into the oven you pour some heavy cream over the unbaked rolls & then bake. I am doing for Christmas Eve Day breakfast, so if it’s a flop I don’t feel so bad.

That cinnamon roll was actually a warm sausage roll, sorry about that! Your cinnamon roll recipe sounds delicious!
You pack so much into your December days – you put me to shame! That snowfall was definitely a lot heavier than I was expecting – they got it spot on in this area when they said 10cm overnight!

We are having a much quieter week this week! I had missed the forecast of snow completely!
