First December Daily

Hi! I'm so excited to share with you today my first December Daily page! I've been wanting to do one of these mini albums for the past few years but I never get it together on time. This year it looks like I'm going to see my dream come true!

Here's my first page! I'm using an adorable book binder cover that I purchased on Etsy a couple years ago. One of these days , I'll have to take a picture of it. The gal who made it used the hard cover of an old book, took out the pages and added a binder ring mechanism.


I'm using October Afternoon's 'Very Mery'collection of patterned papers.


The first entry is about our Advent calendar that Christopher opens every day throughout December. This little wooden cabinet is filled with 24 little drawers that we put ornaments, candy, money or activities in.


For the date and journaling, I added a couple tags to the top binder ring. The details of the page include snowflake embossing, Spellbinders scalloped circle die cut, a hand zigzag stitched boarder and baker's twinefrom Martha Stewart.

I have another holiday crafty share, a card I created with a new digital kit from Two Peas in a Bucket.


Jen Martakis designed this 'Snowy Day'kit and I had to have this little bird! He's just to darn cute with his winter hat that I added glitter to.

Thank you so much for your visit today! Tomorrow I plan to announce the winner of the snowflake accent giveaway and hopefully I'll keep up with the December Daily and have another page to share. Have a great day! :) Kathy

Hello Kathy - so glad you stopped by and hope you'll join us at SuzAnna's tonight! The Vintage Village is located at the Capital Blvd. end of Durant. If coming from there it's on the right immediately after the railroad track and before the fire station. If coming from Falls of Neuse end it's past the shopping center, Mulchmasters and the recycling center on Deponie
Dr., just keep going until you see fire station on left and turn in to the village before crossing the railroad tracks!

Santa will be there - we would love to meet you, and help you with any holiday shopping, so be sure to introduce yourself if you come!!
