ALMOST A FULL YEAR

has gone by since my last post.  Inhave no idea where the time has gone nor why I have abandoned my blog except that after my mom's death I really did not feel like documenting anything any more.  Silly really because now I have to go back two years and document my family's life (I did not make a family yearbook for 2015). It means too much to me to just do nothing.

So...  I will be back!

Happy December!!!

Today I start my 2015 December Daily.  I totally love this project.  It is my absolute favorite of the entire year.  December used to be my favorite time of year.  Living in Key Largo you would not think so - it's still in the 80's here - it's not like we get a change of season or anything.  My dad died on December 28th after a short but awful fight with cancer.  I have never enjoyed December since then but I really WANT to.  Know what I mean? I really want to go back to where since mid-November I was excited and looking forward to decorating, to cooking, to creating.  I miss that feeling of wrapping up the year.

This year it's sad because it's only been 2 months since I lost my mother but I am determined to find joy in every day.  I will see her again.  It's just a matter of time.

So today I will work on my 1st day of December and will post it tomorrow.

What about you?  How are you commemorating this December?

Ali Edwards' DECEMBER DAILY 2015

This is my third year doing this project and I love it.  I truly do.  For those of you who are not familiar with it, go to aliedwards.com and check out her blog.  She has been doing this project for years and every year that I do it I enjoy it even more.

Yesterday I spent the day with my friend Jacquie preparing our pages for this project.  The idea is that you do a page a day (or two pages a day!) and tell a story on each day of December.  Ali does it through the 25th of December, I like to do it through the 31st.  Just seems more complete that way.

What you do ahead of time are your foundation pages, that way every day is already started!  All you have to do is add pictures (or not) and your story for the day.  I was looking at least year's album and the album for 2013 and I am so glad I did it!

Tomorrow I will post my foundation pages so you can get an idea of what I am talking about.  But please check out this project!  You will be so glad you did it!

My December Daily 2014

My friend Teri wanted to see my 2014 December Daily so I did this little video.  Not a great video but at least you can see the journal!  This is one of my favorite projects of the year.


Already started preparing my 2015 December Daily.  Ali Edwards is my muse!

November..... Wow!

This year has just flown by.  It ends so sadly with the death of my mom but many good things came with this year also.   I think about that every day.  God took my mom but gave me so much this year.

I am almost caught with The Documented Life Project - only behind two weeks which is great considering the past few months.  I made a commitment to myself to do this project in its entirety this year and I am really glad I did.  It keeps me focused.

Now.... I have the Ali Edward Story Stamps since it started and am WAY WAY behind on that!  I love them!! It's just time seems to get away from me.  I am hoping to get at least one or two done this week and will start sharing it here.   Ali is such an incredible inspiration to document your life.  I am so thankful of her.

Speaking of thankful.....  No.  I am not even going to try to do a gratitude journal this year... Just not enough time in the day.

How about you?  Are you doing a gratitude journal????
