Photo Challenge

new craft challenge: December Daily

So December Daily is a mini photo album that documents the first 25 days of December.
Like 25 days of Christmas.
So photograph your everyday life and add it to a photo album. Any layout/size you like.
(And obviously you can do all 31 days if you like instead).
Not everyday needs a photo either.
I’ve seen just journal with ticket stubs and other memorabilia.

This idea comes from Ali Edwards.
Here are the links for more information.
And where you can get supplies specifically for this project.

I’m hoping I can manage this and get all the way through.
I feel like I have so many supplies that I won’t have to go out and buy anything (except developing/printing photos).

It seems like people who participate in this make their album of 25 pages ahead of time.
But I’m a little behind so I’ll be doing it all at once.
I’ll be sharing every once in awhile – depending on how well I can keep up with this.
I think it sounds really fun and I’m excited to give it a try.
The biggest challenge, for me, will be to find something to document everyday.
This would be an awesome idea for say a stay at home mom-who is probably taking all kinds of pictures and has a bit more freedom than I do when it comes to venturing out into the world. (I’m stuck in a windowless office for eight hours everyday).

So here’s an introduction into my book.


This is the cover, I wrapped it with gift wrap just like a present.
Then I added the number chip pieces.


This is the title page. Just added some washi tape to white paper.
The used some Project Life 4×3 cut outs.
On the back of that title page I added a bit of journaling about the project and about Danny and I currently.


For page/day one I used two 4×4 slots from Project Life, another chip board number and a journaling card for Project life.

I added more photos to the back of them.
I still have yet to decide how I’m going to decorate the back of the book. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to wrap it like the front.

I’ll share that aspect when I figure it out though.
I’m not sure how I plan on sharing my progress just yet.
Maybe once a week? We’ll see.
And sorry for the crappy photos. – I’ll have to use my slr next time.


Weekly Photo Challenge – Habit

So this week’s photo challenge is habit.



I am so thrilled that I can use reading as my daily habit.
I have recently gotten back into it.
After graduating and moving out and starting a new job and Danny coming home from deployment it was hard to find time to read and to have the enthusiasm for it that I used to have.
But I am back in the game!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

This week’s photo challenge is a horizon that is significant to me.


As soon as I saw the prompt I thought of the photos I had of this lake.
Growing up by it has given it a significance in my life.
It supplies me with many memories and
reminds me of the person I used to be and the person I have become.

These are all old photos (at least two years old) and the three above are from Instagram.

I’m so glad that I am one of those people who loves to take pictures.
I’m glad I have them to look back and re-live memories-
and to bask in the happiness that my life has become.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

So the  Daily Post has been posting weekly photo and writing challenges. And I think I’m going to give the photo challenges a chance.

This week the challenge is The Hue of You. Basically choose a photo with color that represents you.

So this is my photo …


I love orange and any other colors associated with autumn.
Orange is a happy color and I am so very happy with life right now.
October has been a wonderful month.
