Coming off the high of documenting Week in the Life, I decided to keep the extra documentation going.
I’m going to document the holiday season with a minibook. It will definitely be less intense than Week in the Life. And I’ll be doing it in addition to Project Life.
Ali Edwards has exploded this year with her album and kit for December Daily. I obviously love the idea of documenting December. And her kit is gorgeous, but again, I just want to keep it simple. Especially since I don’t think I’ll quit Project Life anytime soon.
I loved working on the summer minibook, and I want to tackle this like that minibook. Except, you know, I want to finish it.
It fits in with my Christmas plan perfectly. So far on that list, I could check off watching Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music on the radio. I could also mini-check slowing down to savor it. But I’ll save that for the real holiday season.
My plan so far is to incorporate any festive photos or ephemera from the season, and to give myself time to reflect and get the thankfulness & gratitude documented in some way.
I want to keep it simple. I feel like I’m constantly saying that, but it’s only because of how quickly I tend to complicate things.
And since I had all the materials, I made up a few more, and they’re available in my…
brand new Etsy shop!
You can find them here while they last.
Just like the summer book, they are 4 x 6″ little books, assembled with book rings, so it’s the easiest to keep things simple adding pages or moving them around. I went for a mix of red, green, black, and white. With a lot of red, because it’s the best.
And that’s the plan!
So far, I have my first (and probably only) red Starbucks cup. But I’m still five days early.
