My 3rd year of recording December memories.

Ali Edwards hooked me a few years ago with the concept of a "December Daily" album.
I'm hooked!!
I couldn't wait to get this year's album organized.
But first I curled up with a cup of Chai Tea and went back in time
to the Decembers of the past 2 years.

A 2009 sample page:

Tah, tah... 2010!!

Although I still have Autumn decorations up I couldn't wait
to pull December mini albums and books for my small
shelf (Pottery Barn Kids) above my computer table.

 My 2010 album is nestled in a metal basket...
awaiting my return on December 1st from a
trip to see my daughters in Denver and Phoenix.

The papers are cut and punched and ready to begin
recording this year's memories.

If you haven't attempted a "December Daily the time
is perfect to give it a try this year. They're fun and quick
to put together and you'll love reading it over and over.

My sweet mom used to say, 
Memories bridge the gap of time."

Soooooo true!

Love you all!!

A Blog that you'll love!

Meet Jenn Brasher!
She is one VERY creative young lady (mom and wife too)!!
My daughter Kristin met her in college and they've stayed
in touch through the years.
Jenn lives in Denver and has helped make Kristin feel 
welcome in her recent move.

Jenn loves photography and did this self-portrait
for Project 365. 

She's so talented at seeing a piece of clothing at a
thrift shop and creating something wearable from it.
A Grandpa's sweater cardigan.
 She's just as talented making jewelry.

Jenn is having a GIVEAWAY.
Visit her Blog and leave a comment.

I sat and read her entire Blog the other day.
It is so motivating and inspirational.

I do each day!


PS Jenn and her husband went to Italy with my daughters in September.

Daylight Saving Time Coming to an End

It's time to turn back your clocks tomorrow night (in the USA)
and get an extra hour of sleep.

Enjoy that Extra hour on Sunday morning!
