reverb10 {day 6}

december six: make
What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

the last thing i made was the cover for my december daily album. unfortunately, it's the only thing i've done for that album so far. but, looking on the bright side of things...at least it's done. well, almost done.

as for the details...i cut two pieces of chipboard to the size i was planning for my album (5.5"x8.5"). i chose a pretty, sparkly sheet of patterned paper and adhered it to one side of each (for a front and back cover).  i used red acrylic paint around the edges. i found some metal rectangles with raised numbers and actually had the correct ones (2,0,1,0)...but they were pink and white. so i painted those with the red acrylic paint as well. and that's it...i haven't gotten any farther. maybe it doesn't even count as 'making' something since i haven't made it entirely. oh well!

as for clearly time for a project...obviously the december daily is my first priority right now. once that's done, i want to finish up coleman's complete first year album (preferably before his 2nd birthday). i'd love to do some christmas crafting projects this month as well, but i'm not sure if that's realistically possible.

***what is reverb10?***
Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. The end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on what's happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. With Reverb 10, we'll do both.
sidenote: i decided to back date these posts to match the prompt dates. new posts will always show up "on top" in a reader, but if you come directly to the blog, you may need to scroll down a bit to find these daily *reverb* posts.
