As if I needed another project to add to my Operation: Finish Projects list, here is my 30 Days of Lists PLUS December Daily™ binder for 2013.
I love love love the December Daily™ project by Ali Edwards. This will be my third time participating and I plan on sticking with my tried-and-true “Instax a Day” method of documenting my month. You can see my previous projects here.
Now, it’s no secret that I obviously work on my lists a little ahead of time considering the posts are published on the private blog at 1:00 a.m. Pacific time…when I’m (hopefully) asleep. With that, the lists I’m sharing on the private blog don’t have my Instax photos in them. It bums me out a bit, but I think I like that it separates the two projects! What’ I’m doing for the images on the private blog is including a backward Instax as a place holder. So far, so good!
For this project, I used:
The papers are super old and I’m not convinced the company is still around, but if you are participating in the 30 Days of Lists challenge, I linked to them the best I could. Using this album is very different than what I’ve done in the past, but I need a little bit of structure in my life right now. Also: Amy is using the same album. It wasn’t planned. You should’ve seen my face as I Skyped with Amy and she broke the news that I obviously wasn’t paying attention to her a few months ago when she declared she would be using the Snap album (in Red!) for her #30Lists project. Oops!
I will probably share several of my daily Instax photos on Instagram, so if you would like to see those, follow me @CampfireChic. And I’ll be sure to share all the pages in a future post. I really do love this project.
If you haven’t already, you can register for the 30 Days of Lists challenge for December – we usually only host it in March and September, but due to popular demand, we decided this year would be the year we bring a December edition to life!

Welcome to the 30 Days of Lists blog hop!
We couldn’t hold onto our listing excitement until December 1st so the #30Lists team + Ambassadors + Sponsors are holding a blog hop to showcase some lists as well as introduce you all to the challenge. If you haven’t participated in 30 Days of Lists in the past, you’re in for a treat…this is the first time Amy and I are hosting a #30Lists challenge during December!
Here’s my list for today:
I would add to this list:
- an organized mess
- pocket person who wears leggings as pants
- aspiring rock climber
- designated driver unless champagne is involved
- Night Owl who chose a life that involves waking up early
- not-so-domestic diva
- cheapskate with a spending problem
- easily embarrassed, and rightfully so
I chose to focus on this list for the blog hop because I think this is one of my favorite ways to start a project like this…a basic introduction in a creative way! Writing about yourself can be hard but I think sharing these things first makes the other lists that much easier! Who knows, you may make friends with somebody through a list.
It’s not too late to register for the December edition of 30 Days of Lists – simply click here and you’re a few clicks away from accessing the private site and getting into the private Facebook group!
But enough about me…this is a blog hop!
What does that mean? There are a few other people sharing lists of their own today!
Check out other lists from some of my favorite Listers:

I announced late last month that Amy and I decided to have an extra-special 30 Days of Lists for December. I’m thrilled to announce that registration is now open for this challenge…be sure to sign up today so you’re ready to get started come December 1st!
What makes this challenge different?
Nothing really, it’s the same challenge to take time for yourself each day for a month. But maybe it’s extra-special this time around because sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves this time of the year as we focus on our loved ones? That might just be it.
If you haven’t participated in 30 Days of Lists before, let me break it down for you: It is an online challenge where Amy and I will post a new list topic/prompt on a private blog each day for 30 days. You’ll log onto the site (or subscribe to the RSS via email, it’s your choice) each day to see what the new topic is…and make your list! It can be as simple as keeping your typed lists in an Evernote, making a digital list using a photo app on your phone, or you can go so far as to make a mini-scrapbook album to share your lists. This is your challenge, we aren’t going to tell you what to do!
Here’s an example of one of the lists I made for the September 2013 challenge:
We have ambassadors and sponsors lined up to share their lists and host some giveaways! It’s always awesome to see what they share…and not to mention it’s like a “day off” for Amy and me when they share their lists :)
But seriously, it’s time to register, we only have 2 weeks until we start listing!
I’ll be sharing the album I’ll be using for both 30 Days of Lists and December Daily™ this time around, we’re having a blog hop so Listers can get into the listing mood, and maybe some of my favorite lists from the past. I’m so excited to finally make this request “come to life” as participants have been requesting a December edition from the start!

30 Days of Lists is one of my favorite projects, and I’m thrilled to make the September 2013 self-paced challenge available so soon after the live challenge ended. This is a great project to keep creative little-ones busy during long car trips this holiday season, or as a way to make a quick mini-album all about YOU!

If you are new to Campfire Chic, I am one of the co-founders behind 30 Days of Lists, a semi-annual creative journaling challenge for people who love to make lists.
At the end of each challenge, Amy and I have a feedback form for participants (we call them Listers) and we get the same request each round: PLEASE do a holiday version of #30Lists!
I have a BIG BIG announcement:
Amy and I will be hosting a December 30 Days of Lists!
We are thrilled to be able to finally bring an end-of-the-year challenge to Listers! Amy and I do December Daily™ each year so it only feels right that we band together and mix the two projects together — 30 Days of Lists in December!
Registration will open in a few weeks, but this is what you can expect:
- 30 daily list prompts for the 30 days of December
- Private blog where the daily list prompts will be posted (no daily email will be sent)
- A look at our daily lists to see our different styles
- Guest posts from our Ambassadors and sponsors*
- The quick-and-easy-no-pressure challenge you know and love
If you’re wondering: the lists are not particularly holiday-themed. There are many special days throughout December, like Ice Cream Day, so how you interpret that day’s list prompt is up to you…there is no wrong way to do 30 Days of Lists!
