Christmas in July

Maybe it's just me, but lately I've been feeling the urge to start my fall + Christmas projects.  Perhaps it's been all the CHA sneaks with the new product lines, or maybe my brain has finally realized that I need to start in the middle of summer if I even have a chance of finishing everything on my to-do list.  Either way, I've been starting my holiday crafting.

I'm almost finished a mini-album for my husband that will be either a Christmas or birthday gift for him (his b-day is early January, so it's not a long wait in between).

And I've just started my December Daily album.  I hope that doesn't seem to crazy.  :)

I ended up using Simple Stories' Handmade Holiday Collection from last year, along with one of their Sn@p binders.



I'm about halfway done so far, and I've really been enjoying the process.  It's definitely much less stressful working this far in advance.  Here are a couple peeks of the pages I've started (I've decided I'll add stickers + small embellishments later):




I think my next project will be for Halloween + Thanksgiving.  I'm sort of in love with pumpkins, and I've got my eye on this stacking chevron wood pumpkin from Pebbles in my Pocket.

How about you?  Are you working "out of season" on any crafty projects?

    I don't do the December Daily album. I tried one year. But it ended up just being a Christmas mini album I didn't actually complete til two years later :)
