November completed and December ready to go in my monthly calendar

Once again I'm joining Kate at The Kathryn Wheel with my monthly calendar.  I'm so glad Kate has agreed to leave links to our calendar pages on her blog, since it seems so many have moved to other social media sites I'm not privy to.  I am now, and will always be a blogger.  I don't have time for #hashtags, @tweets, or other symbols found on my keyboard that mean something to others, but not to me.

I didn't have time to decorate my page for November, except for Dana's birthday because I joined Art Every Day Month (AEDM) and it took on a life of its own. It turned into a 30 day blog hop with no end in sight.  How I got as much accomplished as I did, is beyond me.  For those who love to look at minutia, feel free to enlarge and read away!

Thankfully, I found time to create my December calendar.  This will be the final time I use file folders, since I bought a nice watercolor tablet that will take me through the next two years.

I want to thank everyone who has visited me (and I have visited) these past months.  I have a few ideas for changing my calendar to something more meaningful next year.  And don't forget to visit Kate for other bloggers who also choose to post their links on her blog as their medium of choice.

Love your calender pages. I like the filefolder setup and am curious to see how the watercolour tablet will work out for next year =).

Your calendar shows what an organized person you are. No wonder you get so much accomplished. I love that you are a "helper" too. We are a lot alike!!

I enjoyed looking through all your creations of the past month in your previous post. Your calendar-pages look great too! I might join in this too next year, have to hop on over to Kate's blog to see what it's all about. I agree with you on blogging. I use Facebook too, but I've never understood the fascination with Twitter....

I am working on my December calendar page and thought of you. I will make an effort to post more often on my blog because there are so many bloggers who do not follow other forms of social media. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

I love the quote you have written down the side of your November page.

Happy December Elizabeth! see you Tuesday!

Great background for December. A very busy gal last month you were. A lot of helping out too, good for you. Us bloggers have to stick together!

Wonderful job on the calendars, LOVE the background for December. Glad to see bits of blue in it!! I am glad you stay on top of these since I don't seem to. Can't wait to see the new format for next years.
I have a mandala post up now and will join you for T tomorrow.

p.s. I am soooo glad you blog too, it's my favorite also.

You are on a beautiful roll! xo

see you there! said...

You were really busy. I don't think I could manage ADEM. I do look forward to seeing your new calendar set up though.

I agree, I have a blog and read blogs but not much else. I'm lost track of some great bloggers who switched to other platforms though.

Great calendars and yes we were very busy last month. December will be busy as well for me so I'm actually looking forward to January for a change :)

Rita said...

I don't think I ever realized you did this on file folders. I love that look. Great calendars!

I'm so happy that you are still a part of this challenge! When I started this I had no idea it would still be going strong, with some of the original participants still playing along! I'm glad that you have bought a watercolour tablet that will last you for the next TWO years ;-) Nice to know you are thinking ahead! And yes, although there aren't as many blog links these days I will still keep posting a link. I like facebook but it can be a little soul-less. Blogs have personality and history, so like you I am still a blogger at heart. Thanks for continuing to share your lovely calendar pages x

You create wonderful backgrounds for your calendar blocks. Looking forward to seeing what changes you make next year. I'm with you regarding those dang hashtags and tweets.

Linda said...

I am so with you on the non tweeting,etc etc Elizabeth! I've enjoyed seeing each month's spread on the files and how beautiful your backgrounds are always blended. Love the Dec colors!

Janet said...

Hey, girl! I would LOVE for you to add my blog to your side bar! It was sweet of you to ask! I replied, just on my post, and I guess you didn't get it! Are you on facebook? We need a better way to communicate!
