december daily

i'm so thrilled that i am finally making a december daily album! this represents not only a wonderful creative project - but maybe even more importantly - it means that perhaps i am making progress in dealing with my struggles related to adhd. for once, i started something ahead of time.  for once, i got past the tendency to not do anything, if i can't do it perfectly.  for once, i acted instead of staying stuck in creative chaos.

but i won't bore you with any more personal details than that.  more than anything - i just want to encourage you to do this, too.  you don't have to be a "scrapbooker" or other dedicated crafter...anyone can do this!

one of the (many) reasons i never got this done in the past was because of an aversion to very much bright color in any of my projects or pages.  well - so silly! i've come up with the perfect solution for me - i'm using neutral colors for the majority of my pages...but i'm using beautiful shades of red for the last week of the month.  and i love what i have so far:)  i'll be posting photos of my "colorful" pages soon.

all of these photos are self-explanatory, i think.  i made a few of the transparencies, although the majority are from hambly.  for those who aren't familiar with the 2010 december daily, there will be cardstock pages too.  these are simply the more decorative pages to mark each day - although it's possible that they'll hold some photos or ephemera, too.  ali edwards has everything you could possibly need in terms of inspiration and detailed examples on her website...so well organized and always well done.  thanks for the inspiration and instruction, ali:)

days 1-10 are all here, though not in order;) that would have been pushing it, you know!

You are so wise to work within your constraints--especially as you have such beautiful pages as a result. Love what you've done!

What a great idea, Mary! I think the universe is trying to tell me something because I saw another post similar to this today, and I'm itching to make one now.
