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.

Day 6:
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.
