I love this special Santa figure a friend of mine made for me. Some friends and I all made up silly Hillbilly nicknames for ourselves and Majban was mine.
I'll most likely be sharing my first DD pages on Monady, so come back then!

December Daily foundation pages, a set on Flickr.
Last night I finished all my number pages. Then I punched holes and bound them together with some Tim Holtz D-rings. They feel a little big right now, but I figure I need to leave some space for filling up the album.
If you have seen the pages I posted earlier you'll notice a few changes. The biggest change I made from ,my original plans is that I will not add any craft calendar pages at all. I'll just add my photos and journaling to the number pages. If I need additional space on some dates, I'll add extra pages then.
I didn't worry about stiching or brads going through the paper because I'll just cover them with photos later. And yes, I did notice that the pages 17 and 18 were in the wrong order. I'll fix that, too.
Here are all the pages in my Flickr Gallery!

- Make it onto a DT - CHECK! On August 1 st this year I was taken onto Magdas DT. Check out their blog here!
- To have a "Layout of the week" on the Studio Calico blog
- To have a layout in the monthly picks video on Studio Calico's site - CHECK! Look here!
- To kill a Studio Calico monthly kit - sigh. I'm not even nearly there...
- To put a dent in my stash. I'm on my way, doing the December Daily with my own bits and pieces. Look at my DD foundation pages here!
- To develop a true style of my own. Hmmm. May never happen???
- To take part in most of the challenges on the Studio Calico blog and forum - CHECK! It IS nice to win stuff! Here's the challenge thread on their forum!
- To be the featured project on 2Peas or to be the most liked or commented on project of the day. Now if I would only upload my layouts there, I'd be a lot more likely to accomplish this, wouldn't I? Here's my 2Peas gallery. Now go and like all my ancient layouts on there. :D
- Remembering to do "10 on the 10th" every month. This I can do better! At least I remembered this month!
- To do more layouts without looking for inspiration from the outside. This is a goal with room for approvement. But here's the latest one that's ALL me:

- 2 transparancies (to protect the covers)
- 2 covers (front and back)
- 5 four-pocket page protectors (I trimmed down nine-pocketed ones)
- 26 patterned papers
- 31 calendar pages
Materials: Hambly Studios brown Chicken coop overlay, Studio Calico "Wildflower" PP, Basic Grey Piccadilly brads, American Crafts/Amy Tangerine bits diecuts, October Afternoon Sprinklers in "Paper doily" and these letter stamps
I also bought some card collector pocket pages, and then used my regular papertrimmer to cut them down to 6x8. That left me with 4 pockets. I've filled up some of them. They will sit before the calendar pages for the dates: 1, 8, 15, 22, 29. Every Thursday in December.
Before all other calendar pages I'll have patterned papers with the numbers on one side, and photos on the back. I went through my stash and picked out papers with classic Christmas colours plus woodgrain. I was lucky enough to find that they also have the right colours on the back. I've started putting numbers on some of them:
My calendar pages will be similar to the ones Ali has made, but I think I'll probably use kraft rather than white cardstock.
Thanks for dropping by! If you've made some foundation pages for yourself I would love to see them. Leave a link in my comments, and I will come by your blog and take a look.
