You're probably already familiar with Ali Edward's December Daily concept. If you haven't you can read all about it here. i've never played along, nor attempted a week in the life but when Doris suggested an October Daily, i was all over it. October is usually a difficult month for me with all the seasonal changes going on so i wanted something fun to focus on aside from the ever growing list of Halloween projects i'm wanting to attempt. It's also my last month living with She Who Must Not Be Named and that's certainly worth documenting. Despite the colder days, darker nights/mornings and the impending doom that is winter, there's a lot to love about Autumn.
i made the mini from scratch. And it's very mini at around 4x6. It's similar to all my previous travel scrapbooks on the go like my Canada album. I find that it's easiest to keep up with an on-going project if i have a pre-made book. It's filled with lots of papers of varying sizes, along with transparencies, tags and doilies to mix things up a bit. The cover is made from some chipboard (I always hoard this from packaging for such projects) that i painted and stamped on with my Smash date stamp. i hand sewed the whole lot together, which made my fingers sore! And then put some 7gypsies fabric tape on the spine to make it a bit sturdier + prettier.
i'm taking pictures with instagram on my iPhone. i always have my phone on me so that seemed like the only way i was going to keep up with actually documenting October. i plan on printing the pictures in batch. And so far i'm journalling in it every day.
