i am always on the search for the perfect calendar...
and lipstick shade!!
i have yet to find a calendar that meets all my needs/wants. i seem to try something different every year...well okay, maybe several different things in the same year (there are people reading this that know me) lol
i have used daytimers, various planners from the office supply store and i am always left with the feeling something is lacking.
i know, we are are only talking about calendars but....
i tired keeping my calendar on my iPad, but i missed the paper.
i also want to be able to journal when i am out and about, or waiting for an appointment, and don't want to carry a calendar and a notebook, and a journal.
last year i used a journal and made my own calendar pages, had lots of pages to journal and make notes on.
it was a little too big, got tired of lugging it around, and it was hard to find things in a hurry...but i liked it.
this year i got a calendar book from erin condren. like it, but it does not contain as many blank pages as i would like for keeping notes on various things i am working on.
so, i decided to paint some of the weekly pages (that i don't always use) and keep notes, or paint and journal on.
the monthly tabs in this journal are paper...they do not wear well.
also, i am doodling and journaling in a different way for me.
i picked up art journaling pages in stages by dawn sokol.(a dvd by cloth paper scissors) i have always liked the way she uses images in a random manor and her doodling style, much different than mine.
i think it will help with my lettering which is not so great as well.
the green and blue double page is my first the little girl is me, second grade i think. my daughter hates that picture of her, but i love the look between us.
the photo on the right in the first spread (not finished) is my mom and dad, oldest sister ginger, and the twins, tommy and bev...some of you know her as bevie, my precious older sister.
i have a feeling these will morf more into my style the more i do them.
gee-sh, i am rambling here...one of those day.
the though came to me in the shower (does anyone else get ideas in the shower) that what i really need to do is make my own.
