December Daily® 2018 | Schedule

It's that time of year around here where we get ready to share with you all the fun products we've created for December Daily®

As in the past years we will be offering an Order Selection Period using a box-ordering system. Products will go live on September 6th and you will be able to add products to your box until September 30th. We are making changes to the way the products are organized this year so that will look different and we will be showing you more about that before the pages are live. Our hope is that this will make for a more seamless shopping experience. 

We are so excited to embark on this project again with you this year and to share our expanded product line designed to support you in telling your December stories. 

Here's a look at the schedule of events, releases, etc: 

  • Wednesday, August 29th | Facebook Live at 7am Pacific on my main Ali Edwards Design FB page. During this Facebook Live I'll be showing a look at some of the new products. The video will be shared via YouTube as well after the live broadcast and posted here to my blog for those of you who don't do Facebook. New This Year: the new December Daily® Planner and the updated December Daily® Journal will go on sale on this day and ship immediately. More details about these during the Facebook Live. 
  • Wednesday, September 5th | Blog post here that shows you the contents of the kits and video walk-throughs before they go live on the 6th. 
  • Thursday, September 6th | December Daily® Order Selection Period begins at 7am Pacific. More details to come about how this works and the changes we have made to the actual shopping pages. Products are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited. We have increased quantities and are going to offer a larger selection in general but I still think it's important to communicate that we don't have unlimited supply of these products. 
  • Tuesday, October 2nd | December Daily® Product Play workshop registration opens. All new content with three new themes for this year focusing on tags, trees, and words. You can check out last year's workshop here where we focused on hearts, stars, and circles. This workshop is still open if you are wanting even more inspiration (products used in last year's workshop include products that were available in 2017 but the ideas within the workshop are pretty universal).
  • Wednesday, October 10th | December Life Collection available. Think gift tags, tshirts, gift bags, ornaments, etc. 
  • Friday, October 19th | December Daily® Digitals available. 
  • Wednesday + Thursday, November 8th + 9thDecember Daily® Prep Party here in our hometown of Eugene, Oregon. You are invited and space is still available! More details here
  • Tuesday, November 6th | December Daily® Product Play workshop begins. 
  • Saturday, December 1st | Start documenting your December. 

I will be sharing my foundation pages sometime in late October/early November just like I have in past years and will be sharing my daily stories here in my blog throughout December. 

As always, thank you for being a part of this awesome community of memory keepers!

    Thank you for the more detailed information, but nothing has been stated about when shipping will begin? Thanks in advance.

      Hi! As soon as we have that nailed down I will post about it in multiple places.

    When you say "products are available on a first-come, first-served basis and quantities are limited" that ALWAYS sets the tone for the mass purchasing at the exact moment the products go live. You really need a "buy one of everything button". I can feel the stress setting in already! Can you?

      LOL! And it just charges right away so you can't lose out on the confirmation!

      Yeah, the bottom line is that we don't have unlimited product and I still feel the need to set the expectation that things will sell out (because something always does). This year we have upped quantities again and ordered a wider selection of products. A "buy one of everything" this year would be a lot more than past years.

    Thanks for planning for a video preview so that we can see the contents of the kit and make some decisions ahead about what we're hoping to get! This will be my 6th year documenting DD and I'm looking forward to it!

    I'm so excited for the preview Aug. 29. I loved the 2017 product play and I'm so glad you are doing a new one for 2018. I know every year items sell out. Sometimes you are able to get additional quantities of certain items. Do you know which ones those would be? Stamps, chipboard, etc... Thank you for continuing the December Daily Project. I love it so much.

      We can generally almost always reorder stamps - that's really the only thing. Every thing else is on a case by case + year by year situation.

    I’m curious to see how the products will be organized etc hoping that the ordering/ getting things in cart and not losing them/ not crashing the internet/ easing the stress/ etc are improved this year. I know it’s hard to do as each year your following increases and so does the demand. I also sense that because there are many more products, you think this may spread out the demand, but I feel it won’t as many folks truly will get it all/most!! Hope this makes sense. Thanks for the details and wonderful communications. I’m in awe how each year/eachmonthly kit/etc gets exponentially better!! :)

      We are hopeful that the new way we are setting it up will help with the servers :).

    This is exciting. Will it be like last year, where we have several weeks to buy things and it gets put into a box and shipped all at one time?

    Slightly off topic (sorry) but are you not going to stock the ordinary 6x8 albums any more?

    I have a question about the bundling period (though I was here the last two years already, but somehow this I forgot or never got right):
    If I put something in my box on Thursday, then something more on Friday and some bits a week later, will the shipping costs (international to Germany) be calculated at the end of the Order Selecetion Period? So if there should be a code for reduced shipping costs when I spend more than XY Dollars will it count what I spent at the end or do I need one purchase with XY Dollars? I think last year, there was a code (right?, not sure) and we needed to add it at check out... but if I only get to that amount of Dollars at the end of the Order Selection Period, how do I add the code?

    Do you know what I mean? It's complicated to explain. :D
    And I'm thinking 'cause as it's so early this year, I will be on my way home from work when it starts, so I might buy something from my phone, stuff I really want like an album and then get home and get the rest at my laptop.

    Greetings,
    Sandra

      Yes, shipping is calculated at the end of the Order Selection Period. No code needed. You can add + check out (your card charged) as many times as you want and shipping will be calculated at the end.

      That's awesome! Thanks a lot! :)

    I love this time of the year!

    Thanks for planning a video preview, this helps a lot for the decision what to buy. I did not want to buy a kit this year and other products because I have a lot of material. But the pictures I have seen....all these pretty things.

    What I really want is an album and I hope I will be lucky at the end.

    I love that you already do some pages in November and share all your ideas. Last year I joined and tried it also and I liked it very much. Thank you very very much for all you do!

    This will be my 7th year documenting DD and I'm looking forward to it!
