Capturing the 12 Days of Yule

Winter Solstice Greetings!

The Yuletide season (December 20-31) is a time for honoring the clan, both living and dead, and for celebrating the rebirth of the sun in the depth of winter. It is marked by feasting, gift giving, visiting friends and kin, and remembering those family members who have died. Yule marks the death of one year and the birth of another, as a turning of the endless cycle.

12 Daily Photo Ideas

Many scrapbookers (both digital and paper) and photographers document the holiday season each year with photo album and mini-book projects such as Ali Edwards’ “December Daily” and Becky Higgins’ “Project Life.” Since I’m all about the Celtic way of life, here’s a new project with a suitable Celtic twist…”Capturing the 12 Days of Yule.”  The idea is to take a photo (or photos) everyday that represent this special time of year to you and your loved ones. I know sometimes it’s hard to come up with what to take a picture of each day, so I’ve put together this wee list that may help. Download the PDF here. It’s fairly generic to allow you to use your creativity…but I did check out the date of the full moon and added it on the 28th for you.

It’s a busy time of year so don’t feel you have to make something tangible with your project. Why not post your photos on your blog, Facebook page, or Instagram feed. Make it simple and joyful.

Bonus Journaling Cards

If you do want to make something with your photos and you’re into the “Project Life” type of scrapbooking or just love using journaling cards to embellish your designs, I’ve also put together four 3”x4” journaling cards for you. Download them here (also a PDF file). Print them, write on them, and then cut them out to use in your project. You can also open the PDF in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements and use them in a digital project.

If you use them, please send a link to your project so we can all Oooo and Ahhh over it!  Surprised smile

Have a warm and comforting Yule season. Slàinte! {Gaelic for Cheers!}

We Love to Hear From You
