Two more days till Christmas! At this point, my husband and I pretty much already had our Christmas. We suck. I can never make it until the 25th to give him his gift, same thing happens for his birthday and our anniversary (I am so impatient). And when I give him a gift, he feels very guilty and tells me to buy/order whatever I want (my husband does not understand any part of “the element of surprise”. None. Zilch.) This doesn’t sound very festive but I have accepted the fact that this is us!
I’m excited to share the next five days of my December Daily! We pretty much haven’t done anything “festive” so it’s been a little hard to take pictures for my mini-album. That’s where my ornaments come in. I decided that as a new tradition, I’m going to go buy at least five new ornaments for our tree. You might remember from my last post, we don’t have that many ornaments/decorations yet. We have an awesome Christmas store here in Midland called Miss Cayce’s and I love to come here every year to get into the holiday spirit! This tortilla bowl ornament was bought there this year. Photographing the ornaments shows which ones we bought for the year plus it might help represent what happened that day. For instance, we had mexican food on the 6th, highlight of the day. What else do you need? Tortillas and cheese solve everything.
The red and green stars are from Ali Edwards December Daily Main Kit for 2016.
On day seven, I went to Barnes & Noble to buy a gift for a friend and ended up buying Love Warrior. I mean, Oprah recommended it so you know it’s gotta be good.
I used the Jingle All The Way digital paper from the same Ali Edwards kit and ended up typing my five favorite Christmas songs. I also added the Happy Holidays record from a past Messy Box.
It actually snowed on the eigth! I went outside of my office building and snapped a quick photo to use for both pages. I printed my journaling on vellum paper.
Here is what the spread looks like without the vellum.
Day nine, nothing happened except that it was Friday so I was in a good mood. What else puts me in a good mood? Elvis.
I looked up the lyrics to Blue Christmas and used them as a background with Photoshop.
For day ten, I had a picture that AJ and I took with Snapchat. I doodled on the white space with a Copic Multiliner pen, my fave to use on photo paper. I also added some washi tape and a sticker from the Kellie Stamps Fri-Yay Sticker Set. Fun fact: I am obsessed with big chunky socks.
It’s crazy to think that December Daily 2016 is quickly coming to an end! I’m loving everything I see on Instagram and Facebook, there is so much inspiration out there! And if in case you were wondering, we’re about to wrap up season three of House of Cards, such a freaking good show!
See you next time!
