December Daily Part 1

I split this up into multiple posts.  I didn't want to overwhelm you and its not finished yet.  I'm still adding in the last couple of days and the last bit of embellishments and journaling.  I start my DD in November when our elf arrives.  Its not really a true December Daily but more of an 'adventures of Ziggy the Elf'.

I started this back in December and then didn't touch it for the rest of the month.

The cover.  I used a Simple Stories Sn@p album in teal.  The felt snowflake is from Target.  The mini veneer letters are from the Studio Calico DD kit.  2012 flair is from a {flair} for buttons and the twine is from the Stringery Shop.  In fact any string/ribbon and any flair buttons you see are from these shops.
I love the divided pages.  I can add in as many or as little photos as I want for the day.  Ziggy arrived the morning after Thanksgiving bringing a Thomas the Train Christmas set for under the tree.  We also began decorating the house.

 This year N wanted to help hang the lights.  With careful supervision and someone holding the ladder and his legs, he got to hang the lights outside.   Ziggy brought two new ornaments for the tree too!

 Someone got a little excited to see the new ornaments and he may have touched the elf in order to get to said ornaments.  This causes your elf to lose his 'magic'.  So Ziggy was down for the count the next day.  Tag is from Chic Tags and the word 'elf' is cut from American Crafts POW glitter paper and my Silhouette.
 And then we have the *NEW* flair from the a {flair} for buttons shop.  The Elf of the Shelf flair.
 Most papers and embellishments are from the Studio Calico DD kit or the 25 Days class.  I have a TON left over from this kit and will be listing it for sale soon.  *See below*
 Stamps are from Elle's Studio.  Journaling tag is from the Studio Calico printables for the DD kit.

I love the printables from this kit so much that I printed out 3 copies of them!  All number tags are from Chic Tags.
Thats enough for now.  I'm so over the holidays at this point that I can barely look at this album anymore let alone finish it up.

I diverted my energy to cleaning my room out.  I have WAY too much stuff and I realized that I will never, ever be able to use it all.  I've put myself on a bit of a spending freeze for the first part of 2013 - don't worry, I'll never be able to stick to it.  I've been busy pinning my favorite new products and making my usual shopping list.  I will be more selective when shopping though.

Want a piece of the pie?  I've got all of my paper and embellishments up for sale HERE.  If you want them, the prices are all listed.  Paypal and contact email is BMW1367(at)gmail(dot) com.  Let me know what box you want and it will ship out as soon as payment is made.  Most boxes are $32.  Thats $20 for the product and $12 for the flat rate shipping.  I ship out USPS Priority.  Prices are all US.  If you are international its still $20 for the box but shipping will be higher.  I've got stamp sets and other things for sale as well.  I will be listing more items in January but I ran out of time to clean.  These boxes are full of products.  Paper, stickers, brads.... whatever you see in the photo and more!  Some boxes have over $100 in product in them.
