December 2nd in my December Daily is again, super simple. The 6x8 page I prepared at the December Daily Prep Party in Eugene, OR this past November. It has lyrics from a song about lighting the candles on the advent wreath (or in my case bowl that belonged to my mother-in-law until she stopped using it and gifted to me).

Is anyone else surprised that December is back again? And so soon! I started my December Daily yesterday and am excited to share how I'm documenting this season.
I am sitting on a plane flying to Amsterdam as I type this post. I sit next to a window and can see that the sun is starting to come up on the horizon; there really isn’t much that compares to a sunrise on an airplane. That said, there’s not much to be said about having to arrive at the airport between 3-4 a.m.
Sometimes it's just a question of getting things done... It doesn't always have to be anything spectacular or even beautiful. These pages were more about finishing than they were about creating. And that's OK.
December has arrived. I'm amazed at how quickly time always passes by and once again we've made a whole journey around the sun. The excitement of the season has burrowed itself into my core and I'm so excited to document this time of year. I'm thankful for the little things. For sleeping in and drinking coffee, for candlelight in this dark month, for music and simple things like making a wreath. I'm grateful for the hand I've been dealt and intend to play it out. Here's to the advent.
December is almost here and for the first time in years I'm feeling the jittery excitememt of the season that will be here soon, so soon. The first of my decorations are slowly emerging from their boxes and my advent candles are ready to be lit for the first of advent.
This year I will be participating in December Daily and plan on telling my December story in a 6X8 pocket page album. I've decided to put myself on a bit of a spending freeze, so I went through my stash and pulled out items I figured would work well with my vision of Christmas. This year I'm gravitating towards classic white, red and gold in my home decor and in my album as well.
My best friend and I travelled to Marlborough, MA in September for some good, quality girl time away from real life. The week was filled with shopping, scrapping and cardmaking. We decided to attend a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo while we were there and took lots of classes. The week long getaway was just what I needed after a hectic summer.
So, if you were to go only by my blog, I obviously died in the end of June. That has to be why I suddenly disappeared. Or something.
Actually, what happened was that I got a job and worked my butt off all summer leaving no time for blogging, but a little time for documenting. I don't know if I should share my pages here, but they're on my instagram for the most part.
Sorry about disappearing. I'm only working one job now, so I'm making a schedule that will allow me to craft and blog along with life. I have a December Daily post coming up soon :) Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I truly appreciate it and will try my best to take better care of you.
Pollyanna. My favorite book growing up and one of the books that has had the most impact on my life. The whole story is so believable and the message is one that can not be told too often. It taught me that things are never so bad that they couldn't be worse and I'm thankful that I made my way into adulthood with that mentality. It made everything that happened in my 20s bearable and made it easier to keep my head above water when I could have drowned.
