I can’t believe that Christmas is Over!! I was non stop until today and even today my little monster has had me building things for her. She is currently in her castle that I just built and is taking a nap which means that I have a few minutes to share with you all about my December Daily that did not go as I had hoped it would.
This was my first year at attempting a December Daily and now that I have made an attempt I know what to do next year so that I am successful at completing it in a timely manner.
Taking the pictures for the December Daily was easy and as I said I would be dedicated to using my iPhone to create a December Daily Album. I took pictures and I uploaded them to Shutterfly through my phone and I had them printed at my local Walgreens on a weekly basis. This part of the project worked great for me.
The part of the project that did not work out for me was the album that I choose to use for my December Daily. I have to admit that picfolio albums are not for me. This was new for me as well as I had never used a picfolio album before. A picfolio album is from Creative Memories and it has pockets on each page. Two vertical 4×6 pockets and 3 horizontal 4½x6½ pockets. This was the downfall to me completing my project. I never realized that the majority of my photos are vertical photos and not horizontal photos. My photos were not ready for this pic folio album and I had to figure out different ways to make my photos fit.
I also felt very limited in my ability to be creative with this type of page protector or photo sleeve or whatever you want to call it! I prefer a nice piece of cardstock and the ability to place my photos on my cardstock as I wish.
My plan of action next year is to prep an 8×8 regular album and then I won’t be stuck with fitting my photos into a picfolio album. I am going to share with you my half completed December Daily. I have a little bit more free time and I am hoping to finish up this December Daily before the end of the year.
