Hi everyone! My name is Sarah Lambeth and I have participated in December Daily® the past 2 years. For me, December Daily® helps keep the Christmas magic alive. It requires me to slow down during an extremely busy season and take in each day one at a time. I get excited just thinking about this upcoming December!
The first year I completed all of my pages for December Daily during the month of December. Maybe it was because the project was new for me, or maybe because a lot of things were still shut down due to COVID. Either way, I felt so accomplished to have a finished product in my hands. This year, however, I was a little less successful in completing my album. But the awesome part about not finishing during December is that I am able to join the community now and be Done by December!
The video below shows exactly where I left off in my album.
As you can see from the video, I have fully completed only about 4 days and have another 6 spreads halfway complete. That means that I have a total of 21 days and a title page that I would like to complete before the December Daily Prep Day. That gives me about 9 complete weeks to tackle all 21 pages. If I complete 3 stories a week, then I will be finished with all 21 stories in 7 weeks giving me a little wiggle room when things get busy and projects get pushed back to still get everything completed.
In order to complete my album on time, I am going to tackle each week in 4 stages:
Review my notes & plans for the stories Evaluate what still needs to be done Collect the stories & pictures Have fun crafting
Even though I didn’t complete all of my pages during December, I have almost every story planned out with a drawing and notes written in my Day One app. This makes going back a little less intimidating. I am also flexible with myself and allow to change things up as I go. The main thing I keep in mind is have fun! I am looking forward to completing my December Daily album with y’all!
