It’s crunch time.
That time when everything is coming together and yet still SO MUCH TO DO. That time when stress is high, and everything can be drama. It’s a few days until Christmas.
So ask me how December Daily is going, and I’ll tell you! I’ve written about 8 pages. I have plans to write a lot more, and all of them will look like this:
I open a word document, set the top margin for 4 1/2″, then type my title, a quote if there is one (from one of the girls, etc), then type my story. Print onto cardstock, stick in the binder.
You see, by making the top margin 4 1/2″ I know I can easily put any 4″ high photo up there, at any time. I can add decor such as ribbons or tapes, embellishments at the bottom if there’s space…
and more importantly: I can do it next week. AFTER the baking and the parties. AFTER the hoopla.
But the stories are getting told, remembered, and saved NOW.
Better yet? Takes as few as 5-10minutes to jot one down and print it off. I’m faster typing and there are no worries about spelling errors.
Still fun: customizing the embellishing will add fun to this project, but the simplification of telling detailed stories in the now takes the pressure off.
now excuse me while I go run around my house and do as much as I can tonight so tomorrow may potentially be more serene…
