Storytelling With December Daily® (Self Paced)

Enrolling now


What stories will you tell this December? 

Storytelling with December Daily® is designed to get you in the mood for documenting your December, one story per day.  Here's a look at what I'll be covering over the coarse of the workshop.     

Lesson One | A look back at all eight of my past December Daily® albums with individual video walk-throughs. The take-away from this lesson is the opportunity to learn from the past and reflect on what's worked and what's not worked to create a plan for this year. 

Lesson Two | Process exploration. Setting expectations and setting yourself up for success by establishing a storytelling mindset.  

Lesson Three | Specific storytelling ideas, encouragement and inspiration, along with photo ideas to spark additional stories.  

Lesson Four | Techniques for including stories in your album including digital, hybrid, interactive, etc.   The classroom will remain open and act as a supportive community throughout the month of December and beyond as you work to complete your album.

  A couple things to note:  

  • This is not a step-by-step workshop for setting up your foundation pages. I will be sharing my process for creating my foundation pages, as well as sharing each completed day, on my blog as I have done in past years. 
  • I am aware that not everyone has children at home and will be keeping that in mind as I present the content within the class. Please remember that I do have children at home and it does influence the types of stories that I include at this time in my life. I also spend parts of December on my own and include those stories as well.
  •  For the last ten years I've shared all my December Daily® pages on my blog. Content included in this workshop will come from my experience all those past years (meaning I am not creating new pages for this workshop and will be using my past albums as inspiration and teaching tools).
  • This workshop originally ran in 2015, and there may be some references to the 2015 Main December Daily® Kit that is sold out. This kit is not needed to complete the class

Please note that this is a self paced class. All lessons and content will be available to you upon purchase.
