December Daily Project

After watching Ali Edwards’ December Daily project for the past few years and always thinking “I’d like to do that!” I decided that this year I would actually join in.  I’ve made all the pages for the project but still have the covers to do… I know what I want to do I just need to make some time to do it!!

For this project I decided to use the Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas collection… and I totally LOVE it!


Here’s my introduction page:


The journaling reads:

November 2011

For the past few years I’ve been watching Ali Edwards’ December Daily project online and looking at what everyone else has done… and every year I promise myself that ‘next’ year I’ll join in.

I’ve decided that this year I WILL do the December Daily… I WILL make time for journaling the day’s events… I WILL take my camera with me… and I WILL take more notice of what goes on each day.

But mostly, I WILL take the time to spend with the people – including those with ‘four legs’ – who really matter to me… and I WILL spend time doing things that I enjoy.

December 1st


December began with the usual chorus of “a pinch and a punch for the first of the month” at school… followed closely by “Whaea Shelley that punch was a thump!”

This week it’s “Technology Week” at school and my whole class is making paper bag albums.  It’s CRAZY in the classroom with everyone wanting my attention but thanks to Norm and Sue we’re making good progress!

Tonight we had our annual Night Class dinner and this time we decided on Thai food.  Pork and prawn toasts, shrimp green curry and then deep fried bananas.  YUM!

For those not in New Zealand “Whaea” is a bit like “Auntie” so instead of the kids calling me Ms Honig they call me Whaea Shelley.

Happy scrapping xx
