Ok, we are back with the second installment of my December traveller’s notebook. The post prior to this one has days 1-14. Jumping right in!
Day 15 – (below) I wrote about my favorite birthday tradition. In November, I go to Target when they first get the Christmas displays out and I buy new ornaments add to my felt ornament collection. These ornaments are my favorite and even though they are mass-produced – I like them as much as a vintage shiny brite!
This photo is not from this day – I took it in November during my birthday trip- one of my rare trips to Target this year (I’ve only been there 2 or 3 times). My husband CRINGED that I pulled out my phone to take pictures in the Target! Haha! Who cares what other shoppers think! Day 16 is about my white craft room tree. Papers by LB. Washi tapes AC.
Day 17 – Foggy landscape photo taken from the car. Die cuts, paper, and vellum heart by LB. Day 18 – My parents sent me a cute selfie of themselves in front of some reindeer at a local store. I thought it was too cute to not use. In order to protect their privacy, I blocked it out. I’m sorry. 🙁 Naughty/Nice die cut by AC, Reindeer by KBC (perfect!!), tag by JD.
Day 19 – I used printables by Becca Bonneville here – I love the paper, the big tab and the cat slippers! I told the story of the new dog beds. They all have one and the beds look like donuts! Haha. I really liked adding tabs to my photos in this notebook.
Day 20 – list of all our favorite Christmas movies. I like to add a new one every year, but this year that didn’t happen. Last year we added Noelle from Disney+. The television is by KBC (perfect), paper by LB, number by BB, Holly by VW.
Here’s a closer look at Day 19 (one of my favorite days).
Day 21 – 24th anniversary!! Printables and paper by KBC, pink heart LB.
Day 22 – journaling behind photo. I can’t share the details on this one, but I’m thinking about a career change and I did a little research today. Cups by Mandy Ford.
Day 23 – Big winter storm day! I stole this photo selfie off of John’s phone. The fur babies aren’t used to snow and they were fascinated by the snow. I stayed inside and baked cookies. Paper AC, tag LB, snowflake and mittens are old and from my stash.
24 – Cookie delivery! I used an older (favorite) printable set by Elaine.
Day 25 – Christmas! Sorry these photos are masked! All embellishments from AC. Except the number sticker – I love these that Shawna Clingerman designed for the IF advent kit.
Extra bonus pages! The back of the book had a blank page and the back side of the cover. the notebook is so packed full that I had to hold it open to get a picture. All printables by KBC (Pink Christmas).
I added sequins to the tree, maybe this photo will be better.
Thanks for sticking around for all that! This project was so fun and something I looked forward to working on this season. I’m going to change up the formatting next year, but I’ll write a new post about that with a new picture (top looking down) of this notebook so you can see how chunky it became!
