For those of who, who don't know what this is about: December Daily® is a project by Ali Edwards,
which gives the chance to document the month of December day by day -
or however you wanna do it, there are no strict rules or rights and
wrongs. Check her website and blog for more information, please.
On the 6th of December, we celebrate St. Nikolaus here in Germany. That's what my story is about. I filled both sides of a tag with my stories. On one side, I wrote what happened at work (elementary school) and on the other side, I wrote about the gift I got from my parents. That's also what the photos are about. I got a set of green plates, bowls and a cup for breakfast and so on, but I didn't know from the beginning what my mum aimed for and her explanations didn't help much, either. So that's why I took various photos, trying to make it look like she was explaining.... It was so funny, that I dismissed the 2x2 page I had prepared and made bigger photos.
And that's how my pages look like:
On the left, I planned to add a full size photo, but I didn't succeed to take a nice one, so I used a gold envelope instead, which I own since two years, always planned to use and never did. On top of it, I added a golden border and a very lovely Santa Clause tag, which I got with a Christmas Card these days. I loved both items so much, that I knew, I would use them immediately. In the top left corner, there is again a cork number.
On the right side, there is a page protector with four 3x4 pockets. Three photos of my gift and me trying to follow mum's instructions - LOL - plus little white numbers from my stash and little puffy hearts from my stash. I followed the numbers when explaining on the tag what exactly I was aiming for. Seriously, this was hilarious. Some stories just happen without being planned. :D In the fourth pocket, I added a transparency that came with Jasmine Jones' mini kit this year and on top a layered sticker from Doodlebugs - a brand I love for their layered stickers. It's hard to get them in Germany, but I am always happy, when I find them. They are so cute!
Inside the golden pocket, there is my tag with the journaling (I had to add washi on top, because I miss-punched it...), a photo of the content of my adventcalender,because I love the beenie so much, and a piece of the wrapping paper my gift was wrapped in, because I like the images of Santa.
