I have declared these art journal pages I created in December of the planner I was using back in 2011 my “first December Daily”, although I hadn’t really heard of or understood the phrase at that time.

I create these pages as part of an online art journalling workshop called Doddle 12.31 hosted by Dawn D. Sokol. I was doing what December Daily intends for you to do without knowing that was exactly what I was doing, so looking back, I say “Yes. This was my the first time I created in December to celebrate the season and create in its magic.”

Who knew that I’d later go on to work for and help launch The Happy Planner®? It sure seems like this December Daily did, and maybe just kept it a secret from me. ;)
