A Song In My Heart...

Hi there everyone!  In my last post, I had a couple of small sneaks of the new planner I got, and Trece asked me if I could share the source.  Thanks for the question Trece!  I'm excited to share it with you all - it's my latest project!

I saw this planner somewhere on the net - I can't remember where; but I was blown away by how beautiful it is.  It's called "A Song In My Heart."  What a great name, eh?  I found it on Amazon, and I obsessed about it for a couple of weeks, wondering how I could justify buying it - ha. 




Then I saw this planner by Geninne on pinterest and I was inspired!!!  I decided to get the planner and use it as a daily sketchbook!  I've been having a blast doing little sketches every day...  I don't have a lot in there yet, but here's an idea of how it's going...
I'm also putting little photos (2"x2") of any other creations I make that day. 

I love that I don't have to finish these sketches -  I take them as far as I feel like taking them, and then I stop.  No pressure!


I'm using my pinterest boards as reference points for my drawings.  Especially the animals board.

Anyhoo, that's it for today!  Tonight I'm getting ready for my monthly crop with my girlfriends!  I'm so excited to see them and spend the day chatting and creating - yeayyyy!!!

Thanks so much for visiting and for your comments!  I will be back soon with another update!

Thanks so much for answering!! Were you not happy with the PaPaYa notebooks? I bought some, but I am half afraid to use them, LOL.

Oh no Trece, I still LOVE the Papaya notebooks!!! And I strongly encourage you to not be afraid to start using yours! Half the fun of the Papaya notebooks is how wonderful the paper is for writing on! Bust out your favorite pen and give it a whirl! You won't be sorry!!!

I just like different notebooks for different things!

Thanks everyone for your kind words!!!

Thank you so much for showing and inspiring me. I immediately started something simular last night!
I had a hard time starting my 2013 Sketchbook Project, but thanks to you I know what to do with it this year! I prepped a few weeks and I think I can keep it up to do just a tiny little thing each day...
Thanks again! - Irma
