Definitely, a couple of my most favorite pages in my December Daily 2017 album. I used Sahlin Studio's papers which I have used here and there throughout the album for some cohesiveness; although, not all pages have these papers - nor color scheme, but, I love them none the less.
After a year of nourishing a heart of giving I knew I wanted to end the year strong, especially since the Christmas season should be about giving back, giving to others, serving, and being kind. Because isn't Jesus, and being a light to the world, the reason for the season, anyways.
I originally planned on a 'planner' sort of journal for each day of giving but I found this 12-square, 6 x 8 template and thought, 'Wow! That would be perfect for 24 days of giving leading up to Christmas.
I inserted the papers into the squares, added numbers to each square changing the opacity so words of giving could show through; added a few embellishment brushes or chipboard here and there and then mimicked the page for the second page.
Only 4 of the 24 days we didn't give purposefully, intentionally, joyfully, either because we weren't able, or we weren't in a position to give something. It struck me that we could make this a tradition and have December 1-24 be days of giving each year leading up to Christmas Day.
I'm very pleased with these pages, the 'new' tradition, the idea of giving and finishing my year of giving strong and the joy I've found in giving to others. I'll never forget where God has moved me this year.
