December Daily, Document December or whatever you want to call it…Should I commit (myself to the nuthouse) or skip it?
For those who are new to this concept it’s a mini album designed to capture the magic or mayhem that is Christmas by documenting it daily. A crazy concept especially as so many Priject Lifers fail to document weeks so how can you commit to daily?!?
Today, I read a blog post about December Daily by Aimee at betwixt and between (you can read it here) and it got me thinking. (Please note: I have openly said I’m not doing it this year.) Plus my Get Messy Art Journal group are all starting to commit to this crazy task. Seeing all their recently purchased Christmas ephemera is starting to suck me in. I’ve got other stuff that I would rather invest my precious free time in -right?!? I’m not doing it!
In the blog post, Aimee talks about weather or not she should undertake such a project at 8 months pregnant. My answer to her was yes. Do it.
Christmas changes once you have kids…I’ve become Buddy The Elf. I absolutely love it before not so much. The reason I said to go and do it was the fact that I too was eight months pregnant the first Decemcer Daily I attempted and it was the only one I finished. I have attempted it two more times after that but failed miserably. I didn’t fail at taking the photos just the printing and journalling part. The part that actually matters. Will I go back and finish them? I’m not sure plus I know my brain is full of other stuff to remember all the details to journal properly. Maybe…probably not.
Anyways, I thought I’d share my success and failures…who knows I might inspire myself to do it again this year!
It’s base is a Kaisercraft album and a mish mash of everything Christmas I owned at the time.
So the question now is…should I go again or just enjoy the season without the added pressure? I’m not doing it! Ok!
