Each year I struggle with my December Daily album and usually it's just keeping up with assembling it. I have no problem journaling about daily events, it's just that in the hectic holiday season, I don't find time to make some pretty pages and once the holidays are over, I'm sort of Christmas papered out!
This year I started early, buying this Teresa Collins Christmas Countdown Memory Album early in the year. I think it was even before Halloween!
To prepare for December, I cut out filler pages out of kraft, and put together a Ziploc bag full of things I would add to pages for embellishing. I also made a bunch of library card pockets, my newest obsession, to fill with memorabilia along the way.
Because of the binder style, it is so flexible to add and change things as I go. I think that was a big obstacle for me in the past, feeling sort of stuck in a style or structure. This is much more smashbook style, a style that got me started into scrapbooking years ago in college, when I didn't have as much time, and focused on the memory keeping. I'm excited to see how it unfolds!
