Yes, I am blogging again about our tree! Today we were able to start putting on the ornaments. I let Leah do this on her own tonight before dinner (I honestly don't have the motivation to do it).
Here is my December OTP project from this month's Flying Unicorn kit: (be warned, there are lots of photos!)
I love this mini album from Teresa Collins that is included in this month's kit! I have tried in the past to do a December Daily album, but with all of the chaos that ensues this time of year, I never could fully commit. The thing I like about this album is that it can be whatever you choose-as detailed or as simple as you please! And since this is a crazy month for me, I went a little simpler with mine (but I still love it!).
I started by painting the album messily with white paint & even allowed some paint drips to show. I like the texture this gives. While the paint was still wet I added in some coarse glitter. When the paint was dry I added some diecuts, a tag with the gold glitter alphas, a snowflake & tree and the delicious Ruby Rock-It trim from this month's embellishment add-on.
Here are some pictures of the inside of my album. I wanted this to be a place to record memories, the kid's wish lists, my to-do lists, Christmas receipts and any other memorabilia we will acquire. I will also add in some of my favorite photos from this holiday season.
Phew, good for you if you made it all the way through!
I am off to bed. These busy days are wiping me out!!
