December Daily™ 2012 | Day Six

Home sweet home once again. Today was mainly a travel day as I made my way back home from New York.

I was definitely ready to get home and get down to the business of merry making around my house (and have better lighting for this album/potentially not be working on it so late in the evening/getting a little more crafty, take off my chipping nail polish, settle into the season here at home, etc). Loved coming home to the twinkle lights on my front porch - seemed like the perfect thing to include today (and as you might be able to see I still have a few pumpkins on my porch and the lights/greenery need to be adjusted around the door).

Across the spread I added my boarding passes with a bit of washi tape to keep them in place.

How's it going with your own project this year?

Also wanted to share a really nice write up in my local paper that came out earlier this week that talks a bit about my story and features December Daily™: Register Guard Article.

    Ali, nice write-up at The Register Guard! My fave line:

    “What happens if they are worrying about perfect?” she asks. “It doesn’t get done,” she answers, “and then they don’t get to celebrate life in this way.”

    Spot on.

    Enjoyed the article. Glad you are being recognized for your important contributions. Every time I scrap a "not so focused" photo I think about your advice.

    I had some really great sturdy pumpkins one year, so instead of throwing them out in December I spray painted them gold and silver and put greenary around their stem and used them as part of my Christmas decor. The kids really enjoyed that concept. :)

    Thank you for including the link to the story. Earlier this week I sent it to my One True Love. I think he understands a bit better now why it is I do what I do, memory keeping.

    So, so pretty! I'm lingering in the enjoyment of simply making something with my DD right now. It's been a while. Haven't posted anything yet though. Happy weekending, Ali!

    I brought the pumpkins in off the porch, but I still need to cook and puree them. Your porch looks lovely and I love the photo you used for your homecoming.

    Nice article! I was just speaking to my DS about changes in the "job" world -- that there is now a job title "blogger" ... apparently "scrapbooker"!

    I just wanted to add that I love how you aren't just doing "Christmas stuff with the family" in this. Makes me feel better about my own book since I haven't had much time to do anything particularly Christmas-y yet.

    Congratulations on the newspaper article it's fabulous to be seen for what you do outside of the scrapbook community. I'm so happy for you. Simon and Anna must be thrilled, because I'll just bet for them having you recognized locally beats international any day hands down!
