December Daily® 2020 | Story Four

Welcome to December Daily® 2020 | Story Four.

A couple things to think related to this project today: 

  • My goal is not to tell every story of our family in December - that would just be way too much. All these one-per-day stories come together in my album to give a glimpse into our life at this point in time. One story per day helps keep this project manageable for me. 
  • Look for the stories. Looking for a story as you go about your day is an activity. When you know you just need/want one story it almost becomes a little game to identify which one you want to tell today. It might be really simple. It might be fact-based or feeling-based or some of both. It might be directly related to Christmas or it might be more of an everyday life kind of story. All are welcome in this project. 
  • The story you choose to tell does not have to be "technically" from today. Don't get caught up in thinking that one-story-per-day has to be directly related to the actual day something happened. I promise you that years from now (or even next year) no one will care that something happened last week + you are telling that story today. 

Here's a process video for how this came together (original foundation page was part of December Daily® Product Play 4):

Now let's take a closer look: 

Today's story starts with the cookies + ends with gratitude. 

I took a flat-lay photo of the 2.5 cookies remaining that a friend dropped off on our porch a couple days ago and cropped that image to fit the back of the pocket from Story Three

The cookie photo was paired with a page that includes 1/2 decoration (3x8 transparency with transparent circles on top) + 1/2 journaling. I printed my journaling on printable vellum and added it on top of the journaling card. To finish it off I added the #4 chipboard from the Main Kit. 

An enamel heart from the Main Kit was adhered to the center of one of the cookies. 

Hope you have a nice weekend. Find some magic to make!

    I think the stitching looks fine as you can still see it through the vellum. I would be anal about the missing r in Aaron's name but that is just my OCD...:D

    I don't have a sewing machine and I am awful with a needle and thread. Any other different fun ideas on how to attach the journaling cards instead of the standard washi flip out...anyone??

    The long card you used...was it part of a kit? If so which one and is it still available in either physical or digital? Thanks!

    I just love this: “ Look for the stories. Looking for a story as you go about your day is an activity. When you know you just need/want one story it almost becomes a little game to identify which one you want to tell today. It might be really simple. It might be fact-based or feeling-based or some of both. It might be directly related to Christmas or it might be more of an everyday life kind of story.”

    Beautiful and such an important reminder.
