Easy Ideas for December Daily

by Lain Ehmann on December 1, 2011

I have to admit, the idea of doing something every day during the month of December scares me senseless. That might seem crazy, coming from the layout a day woman, but it’s true. It’s the craziest month of the year, right? I have to wrap up everything from True Scrap, I have to get ready for Layout a Day in February, and I’m already thinking about April True Scrap. I’m traveling this month, too! Yet I’m pulled to the idea of December Daily.

I recorded a podcast for Melissa Shanhun talking about how to approach December Daily with less stress. I also thought I’d give you some ideas here on how you can tackle December Daily a bit more realistically.

Here are some thoughts:
-use a quote a day. Pick a favorite quote and create a page about its meaning for you, or just list the quote. At the end of the month you’ll have 31 of your favorites in one place.
-use a Bible verse. Same as above. Illustrate with art journaling techniques, collage, or a photo.
-create a tag a day. Tim Holtz does the 12 Tags of Christmas on his blog.
-try something new every day and document the process. A new recipe , a new technique, a new restaurant…
-write a memory a day, Christmas-related or not.
-take a photo a day. Again, could be holiday or just regular life.
-write about someone special each day. (I love this idea!!)
-document a song a day.

I’d love to know your thoughts on how you approach December Daily to make it work for you (last year I ended up putting photo cards from friends in mine!).
