Digital December Daily


If you read my blog you probably know about Ali Edwards and her December Daily... just because I am crafty, ad you probably are so I assume you know what I am talking about. I am tooooo lazy this early morning to go and find a link for you so go ahead and google it if you need to... go ahead... I'll wait ;)

Last year I made an awesome book for my December Daily, but alas, scrapping in December (printing out the pics assembling pages etc) was too much for me and even though I took pictures every day I did fail to scrap the last 10 days or so. But I KNOW I can do this digitally. I LOVE doing digital scrapping... no mess to clean up, no supplies to buy, etc.

So all I have to do is make a list of things I definitely want to get to with my family and take the darn pictures!

On my list:
cookie making
one day of a big secret santa project run by a friend of mine
PJ pants to be sewn
cocoa to be drunk
parties to attend
but firstly get the tree up and finish the ornaments for Amy's swap(and send tomorrow!)

Was supposed to be

we had our pictures taken

Tomorrow is my 15th anniversary. We were supposed to be leaving on a plane to go on our first ever trip without the kids. But alas, did I mention the story of the broken down van?

Anyway, our day will come. Now I need to focus on working (one cute photo session tomorrow and possibly a last minute shindig to photograph.) And there is so much to do before Christmas, heck! before Thanksgiving.

Some things I want to get done soon:

Strawberry Kalaches

Kolaches in my future? Not unless I share them with friends. Wonder what apple would be like? or PUMPKIN BUTTER???!

Buy new typewriter tape. maybe I'll let my kids type up messages to santa? or maybe I'll just type in secret...after they are asleep...and not tell them the thing works again...

thrift find

I'll finish this after thanksgiving. I think I will make it a family gift to my family.

making a quilt

And clean the office so more moments like this can happen

I noticed a facebook friend became a fan of this amazing photographer Wendy Bevan. Wendy's work is really lovely. I tried to replicate the effects on this portrait of C-bug I took last spring. Her work is tylish, vintage, artistic.

No wonder my fb friend loved it...(thanks for the inspiration Jenny)

It's November... time to blog every day ;)


With 2 other blogs going on I am bound to cross post once in a while... this will be one of those times ;)

I found a huge stack of Corelle plates at Savers that I will be using when I host Thanksgiving at my house this month. I haven't quite decided on what to do for center pieces... maybe spray paint gourds in matching colors? make little velvet pumpkins? Do you have any ideas?

I have Christmas on the brain already, but with my business keeping me busy with Holiday Family Sessions I have to be in that mode mentally. I think I may need to construct some sort of Holiday planner soon! You know I'll share! maybe even make 2 for a give away???
