Calendar Journal and a Gift

There isn’t much arts and crafts going on over here these days, but I still keep my calendar journals.  July is complete.

August is in the happening stages.

This paper did all the designing work for me.

I wrapped a very tiny gift.  I didn’t measure it, but it’s in the neighborhood of the size of a credit card and an inch deep.  That’s pretty much all I’ve done creatively.

I’m putting as many miles on this new bike as I can.  112 miles to date in less than a month’s time.  It would be more if it weren’t so humid out this past month.

I’m not looking forward to the coming cold weather.  I hate it when biking weather comes to an end.  I’m planning on enjoying what’s left of it.

Have a great August!

The bike riding!!!!!!!! I’m so impressed. I love the flowers and the white lines next to them. I am VERY curious about the new job. Congratulations!

I adore your calendars! I tried keeping my own because I love yours, but that didn't turn out so well. Looking at yours will have to keep me happy. :) Congrats on your biking accomplishments, Annie. Such a gorgeous new bike!

That looks like a nice place to bike ride near the water. Good for you Annie!

July is a pretty month and you seem to have had a fun July. I like the way you "write" the month in a different way each month. You'll have to remind me - do you buy the sheets with the numbers on and then you decorate them? Do they have any colour to start with? You've added a bike, I see. August is unusual, it looks like an old painted wall, painted in distress colours. Did it come like that?
A new bike must be marvellous, it looks good beside the water.
That's a clever wrapping with the tag and coloured string and lace. What a good idea.

Love your calendar/journal pages, Annie! At the end of most months, I realize it is gone and I have no idea what I accomplished--if anything! Nicely done. Congrats on the new bike!

Your calendars are always amazing! I haven't ridden a bike in so long, but that's a pretty one to be peddling around on.
