Bye January

Well thats January coming to and end. It has flown by super fast and I'm not really sure where it went. I was hoping this year i would be a better blogger and update it more but i am falling flat on my face with this one.

So i have been good and doing the Art journal Calendar and think i have done well even tho i did miss a couple of days. Seeing as it is the first time joining in and getting used to writing in it everyday i am happy with what i have done. 
Here is a picture of this month finished.

I love everything vintage and would love to do get more items. This month i seen a kool wooden suitcase in the local shop and i fell in love with it right away. The only thing is i could not afford to buy it. Anyway i walked by the shop to see if it was still there and it had gone i felt gutted as i loved it. 
To my surprise tho Mum had gone to the shop in the morning and got it for me. She is the best.

At the moment i have decided to store old book paper and music sheets inside.

Hello Twenty12

Happy New Year everyone

I can't believe it's the first of January today. I spent last night celebrating with my family. We just had a quite one in and watching Georges xmas present Inbetweeners which if you have not seen is so funni. Anyway we all ended up seeing the New Year in different rooms as both the boys were awake. Dad tryed to let a lantin off but i think we got some doggie ones as it would not set off. in the end mum had to get some water to put the fire out it was so funny.

Two thousand and eleven has flown by so fast. I had so much adventures last year that I'm hoping to have more this year. The first thing that I am going to try and keep up with this year is my Art Journal calendar. I came across this on Kate Crane's Blog and I really liked the concept of doing a calendar on a art journal background. I then found out the Kate started to do a class on this at Art from the heart . So I booked to take the class back in November. Kate is an amazing teacher very down to earth and she explains things so easy. I just love all her work and even tho it's all bright colours and you think art journaling is messy I always think Kate's pages look very clean and kool. Anyway the pictures below are my attempt at January. I have already started on Febuary but it just needs touching up here and there.
