My 12 month calendar: January and February

The last time we met was when some of us agreed to stay, some of my friends said good bye to the project, and others joined in for the first time. I was having computer problems, which was a terrible burden when you have to show a recap, or your annual review! I'm so glad Kate of The Kathryn Wheel has extended this project through 2012, because I may get the hang of this calendar thing yet.


I actually colored the little blocks for January and decorated the page according to what was happening in my world. As you can see, most of the month was consumed with computer and external drive woes.

For those of you who like to read the minutia, here is the left side


and the more colorful right side. You can see I have circled Feb. 4 because I am going to our local Botanical Gardens that day and didn't want to miss it. I actually like those tiny previous and future months I add to each spread.


And speaking of future months, this one is no longer future, but now current. I free hand cut yellow hearts that I glued over red and pink pages. I will decorate the pages based on what happens this month. Thanks to all for looking. I so enjoy seeing what others create.

Super pages Elizabeth! Your hearts pages (love them) remind me of a technique stamping with a heart-shape ice cube tray; I think I saw on a Blog hop. I tried it out but with a heart-shaped candy mold tray. I'll be sharing it on my Blog eventually.
