On the first day of the year...

I decided to learn more this year
and follow my instincts on what to study,
I usually jump from one thing to another,
I get bored easily so doing it that way,
helps me keep interested, the bonus is that 
I end up learning a lot of different things!

I found this group on fecebook, 
Art journaling for women were they have
a challenge to make a year calendar and I just 
fell in love with the idea, so I will be doing
mine and will share with you! 

Follow this link to download 
the wonderful tutorial that inspired me to do it,
I hope you enjoy it and try too, it`s an awesome 
idea!  I did my first month this morning to 
celebrate the new year dong what I love the
most... art!

Mine is done in an altered book that will be dedicated to this only, I had other
plans but the mail is not being nice on these holidays so I decided that this would
fit my calendar and I love how is coming along!

I hope you are blessed this new year,
may all of your dreams be a great inspiration to
be better, to reach higher, to be happier!

At the end, being happy is the only thing that matters!

  4. Hi Moni -- I saw that post too and plan to do a montly journaling calendar as well. Question: What did you use to make your boxes on the right? It's hard to tell in the picture, but they look neat. Did you use papers or paint them on the page?
