December Daily® 2017 | Day 07

Welcome to December Daily® 2017 | Day 7. 

No matter your approach to this project, some days you just want something quick and easy. Today was that day for me since I have a bunch of other deadlines I'm trying to meet. When I flipped to what I had already put in for my Day 7 I was super happy to see that I was invited to easily document what I've been listening to and watching. 

One of the things I still love about setting up some of my album in advance is that some of the thinking has been done already. I could have come to today in my album and decided to do something much more "crafty" and elaborate or just something that took more time to tell a more complete story and that would have totally worked (even still sticking with a story about listening/watching) or I had the option to do something super quick and easy. Either way I didn't have to decide what kind of story I was going to tell today and that was welcomed. Also, I could have landed on today and been in the mood to do something totally different and tell something totally different and I would have had no problem doing that either. 

Bottom line, once again, make it work for you. 

As a reminder, here's what Day 7 looked like when I did my Foundation Pages:

I stapled one of the rubber wreaths to an extra piece of page protector I cut to 3x4 and added a white #7 sticker on the inside. 

Here it is in my album: 

Simple and easy. 

Handwrite on the journaling card. Print out a screenshot of the movie image and a screenshot of the Spotify playlist. Add them to the pockets and call it good. 

Isaac is away for a few days and when they are back I'll have all the kids fill in their interview tags.

Remember, it's the sum of all these stories that is most magical.

    this is my 2nd year doing DD and so love it and enjoy the whole process! and i love seeing what you come up with everyday. so inspiring. last year and this year i did do foundation pages, and it helped out tremendously. last year, i ordered all my photo prints thru CVS and then did all my journaling and extra embellishing. this approach was okay but took a little longer since i had to think a little more on the journaling. this year I changed things up, i'm doing the journaling daily with a little embellishing. then once the 26th passes (which is my bday), i plan on having all my photos printed out from CVS, insert them in the pockets and some extra embellishing where needed. i am finding my new way has made this process so much easier, stress-free and even more fun! thank you Ali (and to your staff) for such a fun project! happy holidays!

    My pages are definitely a mix of quick/easy and detailed/time-consuming and you're right - they all add up to a wonderful representation of December. My entry for today: https://www.instagram.com/p/BccQqe9HZjR/

    Here is a simple day 6 http://athomewiththerichardsfamily.blogspot.com/2017/12/december-daily-day-6.html - Day 7 isn't quite done as I added WAY more photos than was probably rational.

    This year I am finding it’s all coming to me a lot easier for some reason. I didn’t do foundation pages but I guess some of the inspiration is rubbing off and the pages just happen. So funny Ali I didn’t remember you doing the rubber wreath and 7 inside from the foundation video I just wanted to use it because of the theme in my day 7 story. But snap! :) here is my day 7 http://www.petracorcoran.com/december-daily-2017-day-7-2/

    That wreath is so pretty, I may possibly be hoarding mine.

    Some days are simple and little journaling and other days, well...a bit longer.

    Ali sorry to go back a few weeks, but how did you screenshot your Spotify list? I've tried using my Samsung Galaxy app and my iPad Spotify app, but they don't look quite like yours.
