dd01: bring it on!

already i'm loving december daily; and already i'm discovering that whereas i'm totally fine with actually making the page on time, i somehow really have trouble taking and posting the photo each day. since this has happened every time i've participated in a daily project (such as ICAD and DPP) it's not exactly a shock, right? anyway, please bear with me as i post three times on some days and none at all on others! :0

(vintage: sheet music; instagrammed i-phone photo printed on kodak premium glossy photo paper; patterned paper: teresa collins, echo park, doodlebug; cardstock sticker: my mind's eye; glitter letter stickers: making memories; (ancient) rub-on alphas (that i still really love!): scrapworks; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner) 
ok, so, in our house, thanksgiving night is all about starting up the fun things we save for the holiday season. christmas music and bayberry candles are probably our two favorite seasonal items--we will enjoy them every single day now, until the new year. since we are always most excited to welcome their return, it seemed like the perfect place to start december daily!

*a few years ago, the williamsburg candle company went out of business, and took the "perfect" bayberry with them. since then we've tried a wholllllllllllle lot of different brands. we've stumbled upon a couple of cool craft-fair vendors, and the more common cape cod candle are pretty good, but nobody quite captures the scent in the same way for us. if you happen to have a bayberry jones and a favorite brand, won't you share??! thanks, darlings! :)


  1. gorgeous page!

    So I'm thinking my DD is going to be the 12 days of Christmas countdown since, well, I haven't started anything yet:)

  2. I don't think I've ever smelled any of those bayberry candles. I love the first page!! :)


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
