My December Daily for 2011 [photo heavy post]

 I was actually hopping to build a mini album, but don’t think I’m going to do that next year. I’m definitely going to use a bigger album next year, at least 8×8″.
It turns out that it became bulkier each day and I was trying hard to squeeze things in this album. So happy that I’ve mini diary in my phone that I can write down the happenings of the day together with the photos. Another great thing is, I can edit my photos in the phone, have them in collage and only then sent them to process. That is one great way that I can put several photos in one page of this mini album.
I’ve actually run out of 6×6″ chipboard from the initial album size. So I’ve added up with large coaster and another tag mini album.
Here are the inside, with a few photos missing. Too lazy to shoot them again.

Am I going to do December Daily again next year?
Definitely YES!!

Now.. everyone is talking about new year resolution, the one little word, or the most like in 2011, or the achievement of 2011. I’m not going to go through all that now. But I think my one little word for next year is “BE”. Let’s just be.

Enjoy your last day of 2011.

December daily

It is already half way through December and I’ve just started to put together my December Daily.
I may need more chipboard pages for my album.
I also wanted to make those pages look like they have got a theme.
Doily is one thing that I’m sure to be using.
I wanted to try using glitter too.
I’ve recently bought a bottle of Mod Podge and now I’m using it like crazy. I almost use it on all my pages which I’ve put doily in!
I wanted to try glitter too.
Will take some photos when I’ve the right light for it.

Half way there.. (photos heavy)

How have your new year be? Where did you go for the count down? Did you see any fireworks? I hope you’ve been spending the last hours of 2010 with your love ones.

I’ve been doing my December Daily. I’m using a 6×6″ paper pack plus those tranparency, those cut up 12×12″, old stuff from here and there, plus the December kit of Scrapbooks Daisy. Am glad that I’ve waited for it to start compiling my album. I’m using 2 rings for the album and now the rings are getting smaller and smaller. I’m going to need a bigger ring.

Here are some pages of the unfinished album:

That’s all for now.
Have a blessed new year!

December daily Day 16

16th December (Thursday): Got home all alone today ‘cos the boys were in mom’s place. So I get some time for myself which is a good time to wrap up that two last gifts. I’ve used the idea that I saw in 100Yen shop. Make a simple paper bag and jazz it up with doilies. That simple, but it make a big difference especially when I’ve got cute polka dot ribbon on it too. I hope to put a smile on to the persons who got these gifts.

On the other hand, I’m trying to put up the December Daily album, but can’t decide on what size of album should I create, then what pattern paper should I used. I know I’ve bought Scrapbooks Daisies kit, so I think I’m going to wait for the kit and start doing my album, but I’ll still keep the journal here, else I will never get the album done.

17th December (Friday): Had some time with hubby when he got back from outstation. We actually sneak off to have Bakut Teh. We both know that there are dinner ready for us in his parents’ place, but since we need to go to KK, so we took the opportunity to have dinner outside. 😉

18th December (Saturday): A day that I’ve been waiting for to get some time-off for myself while the boys went to GCC’s “I’ve a dream” children party cum concert. But it turns out that I went in too. After sending the boys under Shirley’s care, with a heavy heart I left thinking that I will meet up with Lucinda, but couldn’t get her through her phone. Then was thinking to myself maybe I should really be in GCC to take care of the boys, so I called Shirley to find out if there is any extra ticket that I can buy. While talking to Shirley on the phone trying to figure out if I should go in, I got a parking space right in front of me and Lucinda called back saying that she wasn’t able to meet up and we have arranged to meet next week.
After parking, without know if I can get in, I just went back to see if I can go in without a ticket. It turns out that my sis has an extra ticket! So many coincident which I don’t believe is a coincident, I believe that God wanted me to be there. Glad that I did. Like Shirley put it “a blessing” indeed. What more the boys absolutely love it.

December Daily Day 13 – 15

13th December: Went to work without needing to send the boys to their grandpa’s place. Mervin still prefer not to go there, instead he wanted to go to 外婆 place (grandma). Anyhow, they were there without any problem. That night I wrapped up all those gifts secretly when they were asleep.

14th December: Finally put all those wrapped up gifts under our tree.

15th December: Send KF off to the air-port and steal some time together. This would probably be the time that I’ll miss him the most after the ransack incident.

These short entry mainly due to that I didn’t record all my thoughts the day right after..

December Daily Day 8 – Day 12

8th December (Wednesday): Presents! Presents! Everyone in the office joined in for the annual Christmas gift-exchange. Most of us have got the presents ready, wrapped and put the names on. We tried to do it in a way that the receiver won’t know who give the presents till they have guest and guest. It is our annual thing, it has been a tradition for our department. Everyone in the office look forward to it too. This year, we are going to have our lunch (makan-makan) outside in a hotel! yippie!! Buffet lunch! Can’t wait.

9th December (Thursday): Yes, the buffet lunch day for our Bahagian. It was a fun filled day, lots of photos taken and yummy food. Really glad that we can have our lunch outside and we took our time to really enjoy the time together. After that was our gift-exchange done in the office. My secret gift giver was Shirley. She bought me gifts that I love to have and can’t decide to buy, truely appreciate it.

Today you went to the Church Day Camp in Krugma House. One that you’ve been looking forward to, and one that I refrain you from showing off to Mervin, ‘cos he was still at school. You really can’t wait to get there and start your fun day. When I went over to get Mervin’s cough syrup from you which I forgot to bring that morning, you were totally there, listening to the Sunday School teacher. When I pick you up, you wanted to show me things that You’ve made. You’ve totally enjoyed it and look forward to the 2nd day camp the next day. Calvin, Love that you’ve enjoyed the day camp.

10th December (Friday): Today is the 2nd day camp for Calvin, till 12:30pm. When we went over to Krugma House, you got excited in seeing the crowds and almost joining in the praise and worship. We waited patiently for ko-ko and you definitely looking forward to the party the next day. Mervin, Love that you didn’t make a fuss about not able to join the camp.

11th December (Saturday): Since the two boys went to Christmas Party in the church for the afternoon, we took the time off ourselves to go do nothing. Yup, just relax. Still I ended up buying gift for Qin’s birthday on 13th and our cleaning lady in the office. How to resist seeing those cute little mugs in 100 yen shop of Suria. *Forgot to take photo*

12th December (Sunday): Probably not your day today but at least you put it off better compare to years ago. I pray that you have more patient, kindness and love. I pray that you are slow to anger and not afraid to show your love to our boys. They needed to know and be assured of your love everyday. I pray that we all say good and encouraging words everyday.
