I was determined to join in with Kate’s brilliant calendar challenge this year because I so enjoyed looking at people’s work last year but of course it’s been busy, busy, busy since the beginning of January, so I’ve only just managed to do my pages. 


They’re very simple and not brilliantly stamped but I hope to add to them as the month goes on – or that’s the plan, anyway. Just hope I can keep it up for the whole year, or at least do some of them!

PS, there isn’t quite as much blank space now cos I started journalling and doodling on it … ooops!  But that’s what journalling is about, isn’t it????

30 very much appreciated comments:

Oooh so pleased for you that you've managed to find time to join in because I know how much you wanted to.

Lovely mix of colours for January. Love how the crows are the main feature but the subtleness of the other stamps blends in so perfectly.

Keep up the good work.

Great work, I think it is better to work on your journal during the month. I covered by page before I added the journal squares and have no space left.Next month my page will be plainer.
