In my last couple of December Daily albums I have included a page listing the things I’m most looking forward to in the season. They’ve had different formats each time, but they’ve ended up being among my favourite pages in their respective albums.

So much of what is excellent about Christmas lies in the anticipation of lovely things and happy experiences. It’s so nice to have a time of year that’s so centred around positivity. 


This year I made each member of the family a mini envelope with some cards in it. We’ve each made a list of . the things we’re looking forward to, and at the end of the month we’ll make similar lists of the things we liked the best and compare them. I love that this provides an opportunity to include my family’s voices more directly in the album, along with their own handwriting.
