I found these adorable free printable from stitchintime on pinterest today. Aren't the little deers the cutest! They almost made me cry they are so adorable. And the Reindeer Tracker is the BEST!
Here is the link for my date tags I used for my December Daily's. I printed them out in black. Those are one thing that make organizing your pages a lot easier. I will cut those apart, print out my journaling pages, and images at work. Paper clip them together and work up a spread on my lunch break or when I get home. For some reason I am much better at keeping up with this if I do it at work. At least get the basic spread all laid out and in the binder. Then when I have time I can go back and embellish. Last year I figured out to do this. And embellished everything after the holidays were over. So you can extent the Christmas spirit for a little while longer. Below is the Christmas prompts I've been using when I get stuck for ideas. I don't use all of them, or in order. Just pick and choose the ones I like. But it has been really helpful.
Alright, I did decide to start December Daily's again this year. But I also decided to not spend any money on it other than for the binder I put it in (because I want it to match all my other binders). I am going to purely do it out of my stash, and some free printables off the internet. I also decided that at the beginning of everyday I would write and email to myself about the day before. That way it would be easier to keep track of my journaling. And for my journaling I would trying to focus on just one funny or interesting thing that happened that day. Once a week I would give a run down of what a typical day consisted of in my life right now. And then if I run out of things to write about I would look up some December daily prompts on pinterest and run with that. So I will see how this works for me and tweak my process as I go along. There are some really fun images on pinterest about what some other people did for their pages. I just love how creative people get with them. The image below is my new favorite! Such a great journal page.
I've been ferociously scrolling all around pinterest to find my December dashboard image for my planner. And I decided on this one, So cute!!! Now that, that is done I can start planning my holiday festivities, and even thinking about December dailys. I ended up doing it last year and LOVED it. But it's one of those things that you really have to think hard about if you want to do. If you start it and don't finish it you really feel like you let yourself down. But I loved looking though it as time passes, but I'm so behind on my regular scrapbooking how will I have time for this too. Also, you know it will be super hard to keep up with it so you have to have a great system of keeping your thoughts organized so that you can collect your pictures, and journaling then later fill in the blanks. Clearly, I have to give this some more thought.
I really like how easily this card came together. It was just a few punches, some die cuts, a few scraps of paper, and done. I think this might be my go to card shape when I don't have a clue for what kind of card I want to make, but have to make one fast. I also love the shape of a top folding card. The bottom comes out a little longer than the top so it looks a little like a matchbook. Very cute!
Wow! These look like a fun and quick addition to the Thanksgiving table. Anything cheesy and bready is ok in my book. I might have to try those this year. Thank you pinterest!
Ooooooo, I really love this idea! On Thanksgiving have everyone write what they are grateful for on printable leaves. Then clothes pin them onto a leaf garland so your guests are surrounded by thankfulness. What is really nice is then you can save them in your scrapbook for a wonderful reminder of your friends and family. What a really nice remembrance of the day. Here is the link to the adorable leaf printables.
Such a beautiful tablescape for Thanksgiving. And it looks super easy too. Now I just need to hit up some neighbors who are cutting down some trees because I REALLY need that slab of wood the gold pumpkin is sitting on. Thank you pinterest for showing this to me.
