December Daily : Catching Up Days 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22

Feeling a bit better today and had a chance to do some big-time catching up today and last night.


Day 16 : wrapping day with a long photo of the tree on the other side. I used my Holiday Word Art on the top of the tree and my 31 Days Circle Numbers on the package page.


The journaling card is on the back of the package photo. Stamps are See and Stamp Jumbo Uppercase Alphabet Stamps
from Educational Insights and word art Technique Tuesday.


Here's the before image. I removed this page completely in order to use the photo of the wrapped package:


[ Paper Source  Pocket Envelope; Scenic Route Berkley Red Letter Stickers; Tree: Art Warehouse Noel Epoxy Sticker ]

I decided to combine Days 17 and 18 as that was our trip to Hood River for the Polar Express. I used the same journaling as you saw on this post. This one covers a few pages to fit the photos and words (and I removed the original 17 and 18 pages).



Letter stickers are MOMA from American Crafts. Patterned paper is The Weather Outside from American Crafts.




Added in my ticket. Simon's is still on his bedside table. I will probably grab it and add it in after Christmas.


I also added in the song sheet from the train ride.


Day 19 : documenting more snow. 


I added the Making Memories White Snowflakes (they come with the brads) - two on the front side and one on the back with the photo. You can see a close-up on one of the snowflakes below.



Day 20 : you can see the front above (I removed the previous Jenni Bowlin bingo card and added in one of her holiday versions). The back is missing it's photo because I ran out of black ink (it's a black + white photo). Planning to add that in later today.

Day 21 : another "around the house" series similar to Day Five.



Cork star is from


Day 22 : grocery shopping and hanging out around the house.



Cardstock strip sticker is from Art Warehouse.

Added the grocery list to the back.


I really worked on keeping these pretty simple with the emphasis on just the photos and the words. This works especially well when I am feeling under the weather and not super creative. I like relying on the photos and the words to do the work.

Only a couple more days to go :).

Doing some cooking today. Chex mix this morning and thinking about now going and baking the pear crandberry pie for Thursday's dessert. For dinner this year we are going to try Tyler Florence's Ultimate Crown Pork Roast (along with the other recipes he featured on this episode). I have been watching a little too much Food Network over the last couple of days of not feeling great.

Hope you are having fun preparing for your upcoming celebrations and thanks for your patience on posting these December Daily pages.
