In November I joined a social group here called the Midland Newcomers. It is a group that meets every other month of people new to the area, although what I found out is that most people have been a part of the group for years and would no longer be considered new to the area! Anyway, they offer lots of different social activities like bowling, board games, card games, crafting, walking and scrapbooking. I decided to give the scrapbooking a try and while I didn't really hit it off with anyone (I'm missing my crafting friends terribly) I did get an entire project done in the 6 hours I was there! One of my oldest friends Michelle (not old in actual age, although she is turning 40 next week!) is a very busy wife, mom and employee. She is SUPER creative but doesn't always have the time to sit down and do fun crafty like stuff so i thought it would be fun to make her a December Daily album. It is an album where you just document everyday happenings for the month of December. It is usually such a crazy busy time, that we often forget the little things...for instance I was looking back at mine from last year and totally forgot about a little performance jessie had at school...but looking back in my album, I could remember all the fun details of it! Anyway.......I forgot to take pictures before sending it to her....so last night she sent me a couple of pictures. She promises to send more as she completes it so hopefully down the road I can show you more.
I also made one for me, but have been under the weather for several days now and just haven't taken pictures....hey....I'm lucky to even be getting the documenting done! But check back later today or maybe tomorrow and I'll have some of mine ready!
This album is made by taking apart a vintage children's book. (It's probably the same age as you and I and that is now called vintage-----so sad!)
