December Daily Base Pages

For the first Time ever I am ahead of the GAME! I decided to do a December Daily.
I am so dedicated to getting it done. With all the Events in Life right now, I really need to have my creative time. So this will make sure I dedicate at least 15minutes a day to journaling or creating.
All My Base Pages are Done.
I used an assortment of My Mind Eye Christmas Paper ( I think I own them all LMAO)
The Cover however is some left over stuff I had from Who KNows where.
On the cover I used a paper bag I got last year at Target to make the Tree (also used to make pockets for the Inside)
I used some Little Deb? (was that the brand) Clay words I still had and Metals.
I am very glad to be using stuff from my stash....

So recently I decided to get into this whole Smash or Journal thing.
I fell in love. At first I was thinking I would just record things as I take pictures, so I have notes and little things I save all in one place for when I scrap later.

Then I started making mini layouts on pages, adding stuff and most importantly getting things DONE. Like I was doing it and it was easy, I didn't have to say ok I am going to make a page now. Nope it just happend and became routine and easy. I was enjoying crafting again. I was slowly finding JOY again.

2012 has been a very hard year. In Sept I lost my dad, followed by a motorcycle accident my orther was in (broken leg only thank god), than a week after the service my mom had a TIA (mini stroke)  and the story continues on like that. Thanks to all my good friends and family hleping me get through this all.

Most importantly thanks to my long time friend I met online (in person once) Chris P who always encourages me, picks up my slack when I am just not bring a good friend, loves me as I am. And kicks my butt to stay putting time aside to craft or just enjoy some creative me time. And for suggesting smashbooking/journaling or whatever it was u said that made me pick up that dam book and alter it and get started.
