December Daily Journal

Have you heard of a December Daily journal? I discovered it on Pinterest awhile back. For several years now, I have wanted to experience writing in a December Daily journal during the month of December. Until this year though I had waited too late in the year and then just let the idea go. But this year, I'm going to actually do it! Hurray, it's only August and I am ready!

I made this junk journal (below) last year too close to Christmas and felt rushed to use it (I blogged about it here). So to add to the assurance of using it this year, I made some holiday colored tabs to use in it for fun. I adhered them to the pages with glue dots. (On a side note, I have great respect for glue dots as an adhesive. Recently, I was looking for an adhesive that would attach glitter cardstock to regular cardstock and I found that glue dots were the only adhesive that held them together!) 

I punched these five holiday colors out of cardstock and used a scorer to make them easier to fold.

Here are some of the pages in the journal. I used my Cinch machine to hold the pages together.

Included is an old photo of a little boy with his toys I found on one of my antiquing excursions. Love the TV in the background!

This is a page I put together with graphics from The Graphics Fairy. I've made cards out of it and sell them in my Etsy Shop here.

So I'm really looking forward to my first December Daily this year! Even though the tabs only have December dates on them, I think I will start on Thanksgiving Day since we will be visiting our little grandson in California. I'm sure I will have many happy thoughts to record then.

So, if you are inclined to write in a December Daily, check out Pinterest for ideas. If you would like to add some holiday tabs, you can find them in my Etsy Shop here.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
