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.

    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!

    I no longer blog & often don't get to crafty stuff as much anymore... but I LOVE, LOVE this project and make time for it. It's my 5th year and I'm using just a moleskin blank journal & keeping it simple with supplies I've got, but that is so reflective of where I'm at right now too. THANK YOU Ali for continuing to share this tradition with the online world. Just shared the news story link on FB for my friends - you should be so proud of the trinkle effect you've started of inspiring people to live & embrace this beautiful season.

    Love your front porch! Ugh - I had some left over pumpkins I finally tossed yesterday...not pretty.

    Ali, I love how you're keeping it simple this year. A great lesson that a simple scrapbook can be just as powerful. the important thing is the memories within it. This is my fourth year doing the December Daily, and I am just doing a simple Shutterfly album this year, ever day I upload my pics and it only takes about 15 minutes.
    Thank you for your continuing inspiration!
