I know that summer is just around the corner, but I only recently finished my December Daily album. This project is another one of those seasonal creative projects that I really enjoy. I've blogged about a few others over the last two days.
In the past, I've done Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas, but this year I decided to do a December Daily documenting both the every day and holiday-related events in December.
I decided to feature one photo and one memory (more or less) for each day in December.
I decided to take this approach when I decided to get a photo printer for Christmas because I figured that way I could print out a photo each day and stay on top of it. Although I bought the printer before Christmas, I didn't actually set it up until I arranged the art studio/ guest room this spring. So, the project got shelved for a while.
I was happy to return to it and complete it. On the whole, I'm happy with how it turned out. I like having a journal to document a month in our life. I may do traditional scrapbook pages at some time as well. But, even if I never do, I will always have my December Daily. It was a fun project, too. Easy to put together, at least once I got my printer running!
Speaking of printers, I settled on the Canon MX920 printer. For not too much more than a pure photo printer, I got a dual photo and document printer. It does a very nice job printing photos and a great job printing documents. It has lots of bells and whistles; my favorites are the wireless printing ability and the ability to print on both sides of a page. On the down side, I haven't been able to figure out how to use the scanner, but I'm working on that. And it seems to go through ink very quickly, but maybe that's the way of all printers? In fact, I need to buy more ink before I can print any more photographs. How many photos can you print before you run out of ink?
