I did my December Daily last year as a small hardcover Blurb book and I really love A) how it turned out and B) how easy it was for me to put together.
No worrying about digging out coordinating holiday papers. No getting physical photos printed every few days. No making a mess with red and green glitter on my desk.
I would make a mess.
With Blurb, I just made a template and dropped in the photos/journaling.
SO – If you have some holiday photos that still need a home, or if you want to put together a special gift for Valentine’s Day – I have a Blurb discount code for you!
I’m nearly certain I’ll do the same next December.
But enough about that …. On to the book itself:
Front cover photo is from Christmas morning – typeface in the title is Bebas Neue
The girls were basically petrified my brother’s dog was going to walk in any minute. Which is why Khaleesi is pushing off my face.
And the beginning … Just a handful of pages so you can get an idea.
Same template for each layout. Same type as the title page and cover.
As I was doing my journaling for the final week before Christmas, I kept thinking about how I wasn’t in any way in the Christmas spirit. Not at all.
Doing this project and reflecting on every day in December helped me remember why traditions are special, why making an advent calendar or some kind of holiday-ish effort is worth it.
Tried to remember to take photos of Andrew and I regularly.
I only took this book to Christmas Day – we did NOTHING the rest of the week except work and clean up after guests.

And side by side with December Daily 2011 book. View more photos here.
And side by side on my shelf. You can see 2011 was fatter – I took that book all the way through the end of the month so there’s a few more pages.
I’m happy with it
How did your December Daily book turn out?
