Daily December storage

Hey there, it's December 1st and we all know what that means. We go into panic mode because the house isn't decorated, the tree's not up and we don't have gifts purchased, right? Um, well that too but it also means that it's time to start working on those December Daily albums! I've got my album ready to go except for the front cover. You can see my basic pages from Days 1-14 in this post and Days 15-31 in this post. You can also see the December Notebook that I created to keep little notes in here.

I'll be working on my December Daily album on a work table down in the Craft Department. I always try to keep this spare table cleaned off for special projects like mini albums, Etsy kit assembly, sewing projects, etc.
The photo below reminds me of my Holiday Inspiration Stations that I assembled for each and every little occasion. I love making assembling those and I've used that same method to assemble my supply basket that I'll be using for my DD. All of the extras from the Holiday Journal Kit from my Etsy shop, the DD kit from Studio Calico, stamps, journaling cards and more are all tucked into a wicker tray.
You know I love my little tins so I gathered up a bunch to keep things sorted. Here I've used a bread tin to hold Elle's Studio journaling cards and tags, Echo Park notions, Crate Paper embellishments from the Peppermint collection, tags from my shop and more. Can you tell I love the Small Clothespins? I use them all the time to clip together little goodies.
Here I've got a tin full of chipboard accents from Crate Paper + a jello tin filled with Washi tape. If you purchased one of my Holiday Journal kits, you got a sampling of Washi tape to use on your album. Behind I've got all my chipboard alphabets, sticker alphabets and stamps all lined up.
In these cute Christmas tree tins I've got all kinds of small goodies that I didn't want to get lost in the shuffle. There's brads, buttons, punched shapes, tags and more. I'll be using a few items from my regular stash too that I'll just grab when needed.
I'll be keeping my Daily December album in this vintage letter tray near my stash of supplies. Here, I'll drop in photos and little collected items that I want to add to the album.
I'm so excited to start the holiday season now. We'll be decorating the tree and house this weekend. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. :)

I've got a good start on my Holiday creating. I've put to use small plastic baskets and totes to hold my stamps and most of the things I will be using. But I always have to go hunt for more. Thanks for all your lovely ideas.

I love how you have this all organized! I was thinking of adding a table just for this too! I am making my first daily December book this year. Opposite of you, I only have the cover done. I have pages cut, but not knowing what I am going to do each day, it is hard for me to create the pages. I hope I can still get it done this way....we'll see. Ü

Thank you so much for sharing this post. It is the perfect inspiration I need to get all of my December Daily stuff organized and finished today. I am very excited about this project (my first year!) I too am an avid project lifer and I was thrilled that you were chosen as part of the creative team. Congrats!

I love your posts on inspiration stations. Ever since you posted about this way of organizing for paper projects (cards at that time), I have cased the idea for each season of card making. Right now I have two separate trays, one for tags and one for cards. As always you are so very inspiring.
