October nearly complete and November ready in my never ending calendar


I'm rushing this a bit because tomorrow night I will start my 30 days of Art Every Day Month.  Some of you may be joining, too, so I hope to see you there.

October is nearly finished, and I've even decorated it with different colored leaves.  The larger leaf is from Stampin' Up (copyrighted 2000) and the smaller leaf is from Stampington (copyrighted 1994).  They were two of several in a bag I picked up a couple of years ago at the thrift store.  Feel free to read the minutia which shows how boring my life is.

November is ready to write in.  As always, I will decorate the page as the month progresses and I have a better idea what is relevant.

Thanks for looking and thanks for offering such kind comments on last month's calendar.  I've decided to continue this for at least one more year, but it will continue to look much like this, rather than the beautiful ones many of my art friends create.

I love that you have managed to keep doing them, I am positive mine would have dropped to the wayside many moons ago! :) I am still here, still trying to find my mojo. I always used playing to fill in the time when we were away from home and Chris was working... now I am home it seems odd to take myself off to the craftroom for hours but I am working on a plan that makes me do something a few times a week so I may be asking for help in that line with maybe a challenge or a swap between us?

Good for you keeping up your calendar. I tried for 2 years, but gave it up in the end. Yours is very neat, love those little leaf stamps you used. They often have great stuff at thrift shops. Have a great day, hugs, Valerie the rooster fright!

Well good for you for keeping this up. I make up a blank page to go on the wall where we have all trained ourselves to log our forthcoming but I would be rubbish at retrospective completion! Like the idea of decorating as the mood of the month reveals itself.And no, I dont think you life is boring! Hope the arm and shoulder are healing.

Well you helped answer the question- where does the time go?? October seemed to go by in the blink of an eye, but then it always seems that way somehow. Good idea to keep the calendar going and decorative accents add a lot.

I salute you for keeping up so well with the calendar challenge E!
AND your plans for art every day too.
Eventho I usually do something artistic daily the thought of blogging about it too gives me pause :-)
I am finding it extra challenging keeping up with everyone lately.
Happy end of October to you.

I've started this many times, and in many different formats. I guess my everyday life is more like the blank squares....LOL
I applaud you in keeping with this, and I always enjoy seeing each of your months.

Your calendar looks fantastic! So busy and I love the wee leafy stamps. I am just completing the 'Inktober' challenge, but haven't blogged about it, just shared on FB, but I know you aren't on there. I look forward to seeing what you AEDM :D

I did see this yesterday but couldn't comment while bouncing along local roads - so many pot holes! I love the way you have used the leaves on your page! Haven't started my November page yet! Chrisx
