Art Calendar Journal - Jan/Feb

January
is complete!
 
I so cannot believe how this project slowed time for me.  Someone commented that it was because I was being more in the moment.  I know for sure I was present each and every day, all day long.
 
 
You won't find too much in the way of real life in my journaling.  I am attempting to make note of some real life, but mostly it will be the thing I found most pleasant during that day.  And some days were a struggle what part to use. Like the 14th and 15th then the 16th.  I haven't sent in the PCH thing in years and years!  Some days I had nothing and found that was a good day to call a friend to chat.  One day I needed something so decided to make an inchie art.  That was kind of a struggle.  I hope I don't have to do that too often because it's not at all easy to make art in a 1" square.
 
But this was total fun!  So on to February I go!
 
 
Hoping there's some fun in every day!
Annie

I can see why you are so happy with this. I enlarged it and carefully read every entry. This should be recommended as something to make people who aren't so happy more happy, and if a person wasn't artistic, having a happy printed calender just like this one would be an enticement to find happy things to write about. And the fact that there is just a small space to record the day would be an additional encouragement. It's made me more happy just to see and read it (and I was happy to start with!). Just noticed - this comment has seven (happys")! (Eight).

Annie- thank you so much for stopping by and your lovely comment. I haven't been able to get to everyone because we are going through a pretty tough time, however I did want to stop by to thank you and check out your work. I'm so glad I did because I love not only your pages as they are, but the creative way you filled in your little journal square days! Really inspiring! Hugs- Laura

Annie loved looking at your blog posts, your quilting is fantastic and love your postcard art.
Great calendar pages, very creative journal blocks for January. I agree with you I prefer to post on my blog rather than facebook.
