For example, here's a link to my 2009 digital book I did using Jessica Sprague's Holidays in Hand ideas"
Here's a link to a recent blog post at Ella Publishing that shows a super cute December mini album, all ready to place daily photos and journaling into:
As for me .... well, I'm going to fly by the seat of my pants this year. I've pretty much been doing that with most things in 2011 anyway! My project is based on a fun little workshop I participated in (I use that term loosely) this past summer called The Big Idea Festival. Basically, we took one word a day, wrote a quick blip about how that word applied to us. Then we used a photo or piece of artwork to compliment or depict the word.
Here's my December plan: I'm going to take one photo each day, give it a word, then jot down a few thoughts about how it applies to my personal holiday traditions and beliefs, people and places, or daily life leading up to Christmas and the New Year. Sort of "crafty improv" if you will ... unplanned, unrehearsed, totally off the top of my head and fun! .... stay tuned to see how I do!!!!
