I did a fair bit of umming and ahhing about whether to join in with this year's calendar challenge. I LoVe the idea of it but am absolutely rubbish at keeping a diary. In theory having an art journal slant to it should make it easier but I don't have a great record - although better than keeping an actual diary!!
Whilst tidying my craft room I found the book I made for the art calendar challenge 2010. It was great reading back some of the things I noted about that month.
I can't believe I did all that work for February but didn't fill it in!!
I LoVe the folder I decorated for 2011.....
..... although I didn't get much filled in that month/year!
So this year I reckoned that even if I only completed January, I could put all the Januarys together in a book and maybe, over the years, collect snippets of my life notes!!! I've bound a few pages together that will fit January and February in, and we'll see where it goes from here :)
I even have an extra page that I'm planning on using to list the books I read this month (I'd love to be able to keep a record of the books I read but never get around to it!)
This is the fifth year of the art calendar challenge. Head on over to Kate Crane's blog, the Kathryn Wheel, if you'd like to read more about it or join in.
