December Daily 2010 | Are Your Foundation Pages On Your Blog?

Have you posted your December Daily foundation to your blog?

Part of the fun of this project is sharing your process, experience, stories, photos and pages. In addition to the 2010 Flickr group I wanted to invite you to share your blog as a way to spread the inspiration and motivation.

I’ll create another one of these starting in December for anyone who’s sharing their daily pages on their blog.

Please share a link to your specific December Daily foundation post below using the Widget below. It invites you to leave a comment after including you link but don’t feel like you need to do that too. Happy surfing!

Mister Linky’s Magical Widgets — Easy-Linky widget will appear right here!

    This is our third year to be doing December Daily. I love the process because it really keeps us focused on the season. Thanks for keeping us up to date.

    This is a great idea Ali! Thanks for this.
    I get more excited every year looking forward to my December Daily — this year I was thinking about it in July!
    Starbucks is now all decked out for Christmas. I was there this morning, but I plan to try to pop by later, when it’s quiet, to take in all of their fun Christmas goodness!

    I have not yet completed this year’s album (because I am busy crafting for a church Christmas Craft Sale), but I posted my album from last year. This year I am using Ali’s template pages, but am having a terrible time getting my hands on transparencies up here in Canada!

    • ….
      Carla said…

      Hello fellow Canadian! I had the same trouble finding the transparencies too. What I ended up doing was buying regular overhead transparencies from Staples. I painted circles on some, downloaded overlays from Designer Digitals and created a Word document with varies Christmas words and just changed the size and font. I then printed them off on the transparencies. Handle with care, because the ink will smudge. Once dry I stitched a plain and a patterned transparency together to make them sturdier. I think they turned out well. Good luck!!

    Cool Thanks Ali. For some reason I cannot post on Flicker, it doesn’t like me.
    Just have the cover there right now but will add more

    Terri Porter said…

    This is my third year as well and my entire 2009 album is on my blog. For 2010, I have my cover posted on my blog and will be posting my pages as I complete them rather than just posting my foundation pages, since mine is pretty much like Ali’s with a few paper and embellishment changes. I can’t wait for December so I can start putting things in my album!

    I am doing this project because for three weeks in December I am going to be with family in Florida which is not where I live. Because there is so little table space where I am going, I think I will do it digitally. it will be ivory, leather colored and gold. Unless I change my mind.

    So happy you’re doing this. This is my third year as well and my entire 2009 album is on my blog. For 2010, I have my cover posted on my blog and will be posting my pages as I complete them rather than just posting my foundation pages, since mine is pretty much like Ali’s with a few paper and embellishment changes. I can’t wait for December so I can start putting things in my album! Well, apparently I can’t figure out how to do the URL, so any help would be appreciated. I really want to be on the list.

  • 59.
    Terri Porter said…

    Well, I figured out the URL, but now my name appears twice in the list at #62 and #65. Only the #65 links to my blog. Ali, would it be possible to remove the #62 post?

      Sure Terri!

    Sue TR said…

    Hi ! My first DD and I’m making progress on the foundation…using a mix of a few purchased items and thing I already have…which is a lot

    Ali – a question… any way for us to share if we don’t have a blog??? Between this, kids (who knew 4th grade had so much homework?!), puppy, house and traveling for Thanksgiving, I’m not going to have time to set one up!

    Any advice would be welcome thanks!!!

    I am just finishing up LAST YEAR’S December Daily. I started early and took lots of pictures and wrote some little notes but then life got hectic and I didn’t even get the pictures developed. I found the box of “stuff” this weekend and I got all the pictures developed. It has been so much fun putting it together and reminiscing about last year and taking notes on what to make sure and include this year. I really appreciate all of the encouragement to do what you can with this project, Ali. It makes it easier to just get the book together so that we have it to look through in the years to come.
    Thanks for all your inspiration!

    Sorry that there is a daily in my video sound. I plan to post pics on my blog as well@
    I’m loving all of the inspiration out there! Thank you ladies for posting your creations and to you Ali, for making it all possible.

    One other thing I plan to add into my album are some snowflakes that my son and I created to gear us up for the “snowy” season. I thought it would be a nice added touch!
    And… I’m looking forward to posting my completed 2009 album as I didn’t quite get it finished yet (but it’s on my to do for this weekend).

    Radish said…

    This is my first go. And I would not do this at all, but I am going to be with family for three weeks. I figure there is a lot of material. I am going to Florida and as I am from the Pacific Northwest it has been a long time since I have seen a warm Christmas. I am doing this on the computer because there will be no table space. Look forward to seeing others books.

    Radish said…

    Ali, this URL is incorrect. Is there a way to change it?

      Sure – what would you like it to be? I can adjust it on the back-end.

    I am a little behind on my preparations, and struggling to print 2 of the 6 x 8 templates on one 12 x 12 card stock. we have put 2 of the PNG files into a page on photoshop, selected scale to fit and borderless printing, but it is still chopping off the outer borders of the templates. Any suggestions welcome, as we are away all next week and I want to have it ready before we go. Thanks, Hannah.
