Say hello to my new favorite holiday album!

Each year I get so excited to listen to holiday music and see who releases holiday albums.  This year, two really stuck out at me.

First, Pentatonix...holy crap!  I saw this video floating around Facebook and when I watched it, I just cried like a a baby.  I immediately went and downloaded the whole album and it's just so so good!  I have a feeling this will be a go-to holiday album for me for a long time!  Here's the video:

Second, I love love love Idina Menzel.  Her voice is just magic.  When I saw she had a holiday album this year, I jumped right in.  And then I saw this video and just smiled through the whole thing.  Love!

I will also be pulling out this album from last year that is one of my favorites as well!  Time to heat up some hot chocolate and get into the holiday spirit!  What are your favorite holiday albums?

December Daily 2014

It's beginning to look a lot like December Daily!  Around this time of year, people start thinking and planning out their December Daily albums.  I'm one of those people.  I'm pulling out my Christmas scrappy supplies and putting together a kit for myself to use.  I'm starting to do some prep like getting my cover page done, working on my numbers and getting some big elements ready.  I love Christmas and I'm so happy that there's a special project that helps me to document it every year in a creative way.  If you want to see more about the concept of December Daily, head over to Ali Edwards' blog and check it out.  It's really awesome!  I put together a video showing some of my past December albums if you want a good peek into my interpretation of it.  And Layla makes a special appearance.  If you want some more videos to check out, head over to AuntREcREates and OhSnapGonzo youtube channels.  They have awesome December Daily videos up.  I'm still drooling over OhSnapGonzo's coffee cup numbers!  Have a great day!
