|this was the theme for my december daily today. we had a light dusting of snowflakes this morning, that continued most of the day. it was beautiful. there are tiny little puppy pawprints in the snow…..i also had my favorite coffee this morning, at least for home-brewing, from a local coffee shop “Jack Frost Java”….so that went along with the theme too.
i will post my first 2 days of my december daily in this post. i am trying to use flickr….scroll down to the bottom of the right hand sidebar….it should automatically update once i have uploaded my pictures to the website…..that way you can check it whenever you want and see all that i have posted of my december daily journal.
hope that made sense.
|i am really enjoying this project! you should give it a try!!|
|wanted to put out some candy canes today.
wasn’t satisfied with my usual candy dish, so i grabbed an empty jelly jar and some scraps of Christmas paper, a gift tag and some ribbon….and ta-da!
|today started my december daily. check back tomorrow for 2 layouts.
nick opened the first of his advent countdown calendar….such small little boxes, but i easily printed out a coupon for a $1 download of his choice (approved by me)…he loves to download Christian music or ipod applications on itunes.
ran many errands today….starbucks in-hand…snowflakes were falling….Christmas music playing in the car
i LOVE this time of year!!!
|put up the tree tonight….i just loooove this time of year!
looking forward to starting my december daily tomorrow! i will be posting pictures each day or two of the layouts.
…it’s the most wonderful time of the year….
|of course, gone shopping!!!|
|welcome to our table, sit down, eat and enjoy!
i hope your Thanksgiving day was full of wonderful food & fellowship, family & friends!!!
|my side of the family, is very small. i have one sister and no grandparents. so my parents and sister always get together with us, then later in the day, we spend the afternoon and evening with my husband’s side of the family. both in-laws are good friends, (our mom’s were best friends before we were married), so occasoinally, we celebrate together. my husband’s side of the family is much larger. he is one of four with many neices and nephews.|
|i absoluteyl looooove making the turkey. i have a spice rub that i rub on it, along with an entire stick of butter. then he is stuffed with delicious stuffing (m-i-l’s recipe)…..here is my hunky hubby carving the turkey.|
|over at the Internet Cafe Devotions, they are celebrating the holidays in a lot of fun ways. today’s theme is ‘day of gratitude’.
things that i am very thankful for:
on Thanksiving day, i usually watch the Macy’s parade, but today, i watched the Jon & Kate plus 8 marathon, along with a little bit of I Love Lucy. of course, once the men got ahold of the remote, it was Fox News or football. we played a few rounds of Catch Phrase, which we recently discovered, is a great game to play with all generations.
|hopefully your Thanksgiving preparations are going well, and not like this!
i have a biscotti recipe that i am hoping to try out later today….and a homemade cracker recipe….both would be gifts…i hope they turn out! need to clean house and print out some more ‘I am thankful for’ cards, to have everyone fill out on Thanksgiving day, for my Thanksgiving day album(journal)…
this morning i woke up to a dusting of snow and tiny snowflakes!!!!! finally!!
it’s going to be a good day!
|i read about a great crafty challenge for bloggers over on katrina’s blog. sounds like a great way to pass along a little kindness. here’s your chance to ‘pay-it-forward’!!! who wants to play along????here’s how you play.
as far as i can tell, the gift can be any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item.
which means, you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts.
are you up for the challenge???
12:02:43 on Wednesday
I have my 3 comments! Stop by their blogs and play along there! Thanks!!
|here’s my post for sunday scrappin’.
my ta-da’s: advent calendar and the december daily that i’m going to post today
my to-do’s: christmas cards, and some encouragement cards, and a few gifts
my challenge for the next person, (as suggested on sunday scrappin’): scrap a picture from a past Christmas
ok. so, i’m finally finished with my day long project.
i wanted to make a december daily, as suggested by ali on her blog. basically, you create a page for the entire month of december. then, each day of december, you take a photo(s), journal it and create a layout using the page you have already created. it should help you save time during the hustle & bustle of the Christmas season.
i am only going to post 8 pictures today, showing how i altered a 3-ring binder to use for it:
