December Daily™ 2013 | Day Eleven


Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Eleven.

Super busy day here today that included multiple calls regarding health insurance enrollment (with super long hold times), chicken noodle soup for lunch, no school for the kids again due to the weather, Chris coming over to pick up the kids for the rest of the week, and a movie date.

Here's what I put together for Day Eleven:


Today I created a spread that includes an enlarged photo of the envelope holding the kid's letters to Santa paired with my own note to Santa handwritten on vellum.


I added a 6x8 overlay on top of the photo, printed it here at home and added a few handwritten words along the top and bottom of the envelope. I slipped it down inside the page protector and then stitched along the top of the page protector to keep all the loose embellishments from yesterday inside the pocket.


I considered just having the enlarged photo be it for today but decided to include my own little note to Santa. Rather than asking for something I wrote thanking him for giving me a gift already - my immediate family will all be together for Christmas this year including my Mom, Dad and my two siblings and their families. It hasn't happened for such a long time and I'm so, so looking forward to it and so thankful that it's all working out.

Like jumping up and down, heart-so-full happy.

I used one of the gold metallic markers from American Crafts and wrote directly onto a piece of vellum that is the same size as the page protectors. A little gold star tops it off.
