I got the cover and cover page completed in November and hit a brick wall. lol After sitting on my rear all day trying to find my mojo, I opened up my Art Bin full of December goodness. I'm feeling it today, so I'm running with it! lol

Anyone else out there this far behind on your December album?

Thanks for the encouragement!

Lisa - I don't really do a DD, it's just an album with Dec. photos and I still couldn't get it together!

Me too! I just reached out to my friend who I started one with! We both finished our bases by early December. I've got all my pics printed, and now just waiting for her to print hers, and we can get these things done!

In the meantime I have a first birthday party to prepare for! My baby girl will be one next weekend and I've got a long ol' to-do list to keep me busy!

Yep! I rarely get time to scrap (I have a three yr old and a three month old). But last night I decided to make myself a pot of coffee and stayed up waaaay too late working on my album. It's coming along quite nicely, and even though I am lagging a bit today, it was totally worth it! Besides, what's the fun in scrapping current photos anyway, it's a lot more fun to look back and reminisce now. If I had done it right away, my journalling would probably all be about the baby spitting up on me and the toddler having a meltdown. This way I can much more easily gloss over all those less than perfect memories. Not realistic, but hey, I am pretty sure I will remember the fits without putting them in writing!

My DD has just turned into a regular album. The daily was just to much. And the preplanning wasn't my thing.

I knew I wouldn't have time to do anything in December except take a photo and jot down what we did in a daily planner. The first of Jan. I order my photos and I'm just putting my Dec Daily together now. Did this last year too and it worked great. I'll finish it in February if all goes well.

Oh, thanks so much for posting this! I was feeling like a failure cause I haven't finished mine yet! I knew I wouldn't get it done in December, and that was ok.
I put way to much pressure in myself! I'm do glad reading other comments, that there are people just like me! So thanks a bunch for posting this thread!

Mine is not really a daily but more like a December memories album. I have some of the photos printed but still waiting on 2 daughters to get me their pics. Oh we'll...it will get done eventually.

I had visions of starting mine this weekend. But today I started a cold so I don't think the motivation will be there.

Good luck, hope you are enjoying your project already!

I started working on mine last week. I've done 1 - 2 pages a day. I am ready to put away all these Christmas supplies but I do love making the layouts. Have fun keeping up with yours.

I have 6 days left. I have the pictures printed and paper picked out and set aside. And yet all I seemed to want to do is PL. I really gotta get some motivation and finish my DD....

I did get several pages completed. I think I'll call it a night (scrapwise) and start fresh in the morning!

@Meagan - I couldn't help but laugh at your post. I agree, sometimes it's better to let a little time lapse before documenting! Hugs to you, it will get easier!
