If you’ve been participating in (or following) the #DecemberDBD Challenge, chances are you’ve seen some pretty cool pages from crafters! We were overjoyed seeing everyone participate –– you are all SO talented!
Today, December 31, is the last day of the #DecemberDBD Challenge which means, if you’re participating, you don’t want to forget to complete your last page!
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! Did you all play along with #DecemberDBD in the ECD Planner Group on Facebook? It was so much fun and so inspirational. I am doing pages for each day in December and today, I’m showing you the final ones! (I did the Dec 31 page earlier this month!)
Today, I’m here to share some ideas and tips for your #DecemberDBD journal. I recommend trying to add pictures to your pages each day –– from “normal” things like doing the dishes or groceries, and a full/empty fridge. It really doesn’t matter what you take pictures of –– everything you do on a single day is fine. It’s more about documenting each day, whether it’s work, sports, watching tv, cooking diner, babysitting, laundry, etc.
If you find yourself lacking inspiration on a certain day, here’s a list of some themes/ideas that might help:
Photo of your craft desk/room
Buy yourself a treat/something you really like to eat and try to make a stunning picture of it to use in your journal
Your favorite (Christmas) song
Decorating your tree
A black & white picture
Write a letter to Santa and hide it in your journal
Take pictures of December decorations in your area, or go to a garden centre or decorated shop to take pictures.
Create a tag
Your favorite (feel-good) movie
Your pets or birds and other animals in the garden
Donate $5 to charity
Your favorite Facebook group 😉
Christmas cards you are sending and/or receiving
Your front door or house
Hot chocolate or a good cup of tea/coffee
Your dream house
PJ’s all day –– staycation
Cleaning a closet or a room
The sky/the weather today
What makes you happy?
Make a page with paint or watercolor
News: What’s happening right now –– local or worldwide
New Years wishes
If you are planning to journal through the full month of December (1–31st) to review the past year, you can also add things like: the best thing that happened last year, the saddest thing that happened last year, milestones, etc.
For our Dutch members there is also Sinterklaas on December 5th –– a great subject for your December-Day-By-Day journal/ planner!
I hope this helps give you a little bit of inspiration as we get ready to document our December! Don’t forget to join us on the ECD Planner Page on Facebook to see other crafters’ planner pages, and to share pictures of your own!
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! Are you participating in the ECD Planner Facebook Group December Day-by-Day? I am! It’s fun and inspiring! I’m preparing as many base pages in advance. As I go through December, I’ll add pictures (and probably some fun embellishments). Today’s post shows several days. (I’ll also add the December date later since I don’t know what order they’ll be in!)
December Day-By-Day is a wonderful way to document the month of December in your ECD Planner! Create a page for every day leading up to Christmas, or for every day in December –– it’s up to you!
Your December Day-By-Day planner can be used to showcase your favorite photos, organize your shopping list, share your favorite recipes and more! #DecemberDBD is the perfect way to celebrate and reflect in the month of December.
ALSO, every week, starting the week of November 4, we will give away a $25/€25 gift card to someone who has posted about #DecemberDBD. Every post is an entry in the weekly drawing, so be sure to hop on social media each week to show us your progress!
We can’t wait to see everyone’s #DecemberDBD progress throughout November and December!
