Hello! Jill here! I'm excited to share with you my 9th completed December Daily! It was actually my first time going back to a 6x8 album since my first year in 2014 and I really enjoyed revisiting that size. Although, I will say that using the 10x8 last year gave me much more space to spread out the bulky products. But I was determined to fit it all in one album, so I made it work!
Does anyone else live by the motto that if Ali can fit her December Daily in one album then so can you? I sort of love the challenge of that at the end of my album when there's not much space left.
This year I had a pretty quiet December and just didn't feel like taking very many photos. What that meant for my project was that the photos I did take were often more intentional or playful, and I was able to include pretty much all of them! Yes to less photo decision fatigue!
With less photos and my tendency to take portrait photos, I ended up with way more full page photos than normal and I'm not one bit sad about it.
As with most years, I did not set up foundation pages because I like to have the freedom to create what I feel like in the moment and what I feel like my story needs.
I also did not start my album until around December 15th because I like to have a handful of stories to work with before getting started to see how they are fitting together. I finished about a quarter of the album before Christmas and worked hard to finish the rest in the two weeks that followed. I can't seem to move on to other projects until it's done, so this timeframe works for me.
Let me know if you have any questions about my album. You can find a full walk through with more of my thoughts on my album on YouTube here.
And a quick flip through on Instagram here.
