2011: A Very Great Year!

Everywhere I look right now there are the Top 10, Top 50, or Top 100 of something for the year 2011.  I took a look back through my blog to see what was happening here at D's Paper Studio from the year 2011.

Completion of My December Daily...New Year's Comin'

As usual it's my end-of-the-year clean up and changes with D's Paper Studio blog. 

Step one has been to condense my posts.  unKit, Ali Edwards, and now one of my favorite bloggers, Tim Holtz has gone to this blog format. I didn't realize it until Tim changed his format is that it helps you to load the blog faster and pick the posts you want to read. All you have to do is click "Read more >>".  I thought I would give it a try and please let me know what you think. Okay...I couldn't do it.  I didn't like it so much either and when a few of you left comments about it I totally agree and I changed it back.  Thanks!

Leave a comment or email me at with how it works for you.

I have more changes in the works so keep hanging around!
Before I share the last of my December Daily I would like to ask if you enjoy D's Paper Studio and you are not yet a follower, would you consider Following?  My goal was to have 400 Followers of D's Pape…

A Happy Exhaustion, December Daily 13-19

It is so much fun this time of the year.  For me it's watching my granddaughter, Little Honey, find the magic of
Christmas.  She loves Christmas Trees and their ornaments.  It's like an "on" switch to her excitement when she sees the tree lights.
I can do without the shopping, but if I'm going to do it being with Jimmy makes it fun.  He can hardly pass up anything that he thinks the grand-girls will like.  Last night he was looking at Christmas dresses for Hannah.  It didn't matter she already had one!  LOL  No, I did not let him buy it.

Wrapping, cleaning, last minute decorations before the family comes over.  What exhausting fun.  This year there is an added bonus:  My December Daily.  This has been the most fun looking at my daily life through the lens of a camera.  Here are my next set of pages.  You can click on the photo for a details.  

Pages 13-19

Each day has a transparency between it.  I'll share a few of them on Thursday. 

Oops!  I forgot my journaling.  I will place it on the border strip at the bottom.

End of Book 1
I bulked up my pages too much when I added the Grungeboard numbers.  Now I have a Book I and Book II.

Happy Chanukah!
Here is a magnificent video of Tzlil V'zemer Children's Choir singing Oh Chanukah, Oh Chanukah.
