So I didn't make a mistake with the date. I am, in fact, working on last year's project at this very moment. I have always had a bit of a problem following through on my DD's. I have been attempting to make one every year since 2008 with varying degrees of success. After all that time I've figured out a few things:
1. The manner in which you complete this project is personal. Notebook, album, minibook...holiday specific, secular, seasonal, everyday, numbers/no numbers, to the 25th...to the 31st, etc. The bottom line...do you.
2. Take pictures and keep a journal.
3. Use products that make you swoon and participate in the community. Enthusiasm is motivating.
4. Create a process. Whether it's photo printing, journaling, layout or design...creating some aspect that is repetitive simplifies everything else.
That's it. I'm mostly saying all of this stuff to myself since it's really about guiding my own success. I have no idea how to help anybody finish this project since, as I mentioned, I happen to be working on mine a year later.
Once I finish I'll write a more comprehensive post and film a flip thru...fingers crossed I get it done this year:)
