December Daily 2014 - Base Pages and Album


Would you believe that it's taken me about 25 times to get this video done?
Holy smokes, life is CRAZY right now!
Who would've thought having a baby would change things so much ;)

Here is my video that goes over my base pages and album for this year's December Daily project.
 

If you have any questions just comment or send me an email. Thanks for watching!

December Daily 2014 is coming!

It has been a "crazier-than-normal" year for us in the Allen household.
Meet baby Vivian!
 
You'll see that she's changed quite a bit from her first picture in my February post :)
 
I really wanted to do December Daily again this year, but I knew that having a new baby would make things difficult, if not impossible, to do anything extra. And I was right! Things are crazy and chaotic...which makes me very glad that I made my album ahead of time back in June. Hey, even I thought it was nuts doing it that early. But I'm glad that I did. The fabulous Miss "V" came at the tail end of August and things have been nutso ever since!
 
So stay tuned for an introduction video which will be coming in the next few days!

Love and Craziness,

December Daily 2013 - it's a wrap

I finally have all my ducks in a row! Here is my official wrap up of December Daily 2013. I did end up doing things a little bit differently than I thought I would so you'll see some differences between the finished pages and the base pages.

I also realized that by trying to make things easier on myself, I actually ended up making them harder! So next year I will definitely be going back to the format I did in 2010 and 2012. And because I'll have a new baby in the mix next year, I'll also be doing my prep waaaay in advanced to make sure that the project actually gets done. I'm someone who gets overwhelmed very easily so I want to be proactive and as organized as possible.

 
Here is the website I talk about in my video that has the free rustic graphics that I put in my chalkboard elements: http://www.welivedhappilyeverafter.com/2013/11/12-stunning-free-rustic-graphics.html. Thank you Hannah from We Lived Happily Ever After, they are beautiful!

Thank you for sticking with me on this project! My morning sickness was definitely worse this time around so I appreciate your patience while I finished everything up.

Coming up soon on my blog - there are LOTS of home crafting projects brewing in my head! My nesting instinct is kicking in and so is my creativity so stay tuned for some fun sign/palette projects!
