December Daily...a start!

I woke up this morning faced with that horrible question...which direction do I run in first? It's almost December, my to-do list is out of control, the diary is filling up fast, and I'm feeling the time slipping away!

I pondered the situation over some chocolate and a cup of tea (as you do), and decided that I had to

a) breathe
b) write a new list and
c) pick one thing off that list and make a start!

I picked the one thing that was bothering me the most (after choosing to ignore the laundry) and that thing was December Daily. I always do December Daily. It wouldn't be December without December Daily. But without a cover, or a theme, or a size, or even a clue how I was going to attack it this year, December Daily was looking a bit grim.

I went to the stash...

...and found some old 8x8 page protectors that needed using up. I based the size of the album on that! I thought I was going to do a classic white album this year...but the red polkadots took over :) They do that a lot.

So with the cover started...it's just paper at the moment, no chipboard yet...I started some interior pages. Just the basics, but a start, nevertheless.

Simple, but workable.

And all of a sudden, the panic is starting to subside.

Thank goodness...it's not even December yet!

There's nothing like a cuppa and some chocolate to make any situation more manageable.

December Daily is off to a promising start. Yay!

Good start! I so identify with that running back and forth thing. Is a December Daily more of a picture album or more of a journal? I'm not familiar with the term.
