My February calendar pages

I got this ready last night because I plan to take this book with me to California today. This is the full spread, showing a bunch of tumbling hearts. You know why they are tumbling if you read my blog on a regular basis.

Since I will probably be gone before Mr. Linky goes up on Kate's blog, I hope someone will add my link. And for the second month in a row, I want to thank Kate at The Kathryn Wheel for featuring these calendar pages each month.


Here is the left side all filled in. I decided to place the year on the left this month for a bit if diversion.


This is the right side. You can enlarge these pages in order to read the individual entries, if you like. Thankfully, it didn't take half a month to get the courage to show these two pages like it did my January pages.


And to be sure I am ready for my trip, you can see the above pages are for March, although you may need a magnifying glass to read the month and year.

And just like February, I decided to wait to see how the month of March develops before I add any embellishments or images. And maybe by the end of March, I will have my basement studio back, which also means access to my images and other art supplies.

Elizabeth!
Isn't this nuts:
I've been doing this, and I didn't know it was a challenge or a thing. I just dig doing it.
Weird-y.
I will maybe link mine up.
They are sort of personal though, so we'll see.
Xx,
A

It's scary that another month has disappeared but so nice to be able look back and have these little triggers as to what happened... great idea to use the tumbling hearts to represent your fall down the stairs, hope the hand is healing up nicely now? Have fun on your trip and soak up every ray of sunshine that is available!!

You have a lovely shimmer on your March pages - the backgeound colours are gorgeous :)

I like the February pink backgrounds & the 'finding courage' section that has birds accenting it.
March's backgrounds are looking gorgeous.
No need to be afraid to share because if others are like me they are always admiring your work.
