January in my journal - the calendar part...

Hi friends!  I have two months of calendar journaling to share with you, but it's a bit much to put in one post; so I thought I will share one month at a time.

It's a little bit bit No Excuses, a little bit Documented Life Project a little bit Right Brain Planner, and some other stuff, all rolled into one.  I hope you enjoy the photo show!





































I know it's a lot to digest, so let me know if you have any questions, okay?

Next time, I will share February's pages.

Thanks so much for visiting!  I appreciate you!

After WOWing over your January pages, a thought came to me --- don't know if it may have been quote I read one time, or just my own: A documented life is an unforgettable life! As an older person, I can say that one forgets so much of what happened day to day over the years - in fact for me, I seem to remember the hard times more than the good. Had I kept a journal, there would probably be more cause for celebration and cheerful remembrances! What you are doing is SO great!! All the best and keep doing what you're doing!

Michelle -- I've never commented on your posts before, but I just had to write this time. Your journal pages are always SO colorful and interesting. As Gayle mentioned, you're going to be able to look back at your journals and remember all those little things that made your life so full. Would you ever consider offering us an on-line class in how you create your pages? Also, what paints and markers do you use to get such intense colors on your pages? Thanks so much. You're awesome!

Thank you so much for your kind words everyone! I really appreciate that you took the time to leave me a comment!

Gayle, your words are so true - I think it's human nature that we remember the hard times the most. I creaated my first scrapbook (as an adult) for just that reason - I had had a difficult year, and wanted to remember that there were good times in that year too. It really helped.

KrissyB - I do want to create an online class! I hope to do so in the not-too-distant future! As far as the intense colors go - I use lots of different brands of paint - Golden, Liquitex and Dylusions are my favorites. I have a bright color palette that I love so I look for any medium that comes in those bright colors, and buy it! I hope that makes sense? Thanks for asking!
