My 2011 Calendar Project - Finished!

December 2011
(Click on any picture to see the details!)

After working on this project for an entire year and writing one little "inchie" at a time, those tiny squares have become journal that's become very personal and dear to my heart.  Special thanks to Kate Crane at "The Kathryn Wheel" for starting me in new directions of personal and artistic growth.

((Insert sound of heralding trumpets here, please!))  Without further ado, here's a quick overview of my journal spreads. Larger versions (along with all of the imagery credits) can be found in my Flicker account, or you can click on the "Calendar Journal 2011" tag at the bottom of this post.

January - April
May - August
September - December
Although this project has been fun and I've met a lot of wonderful artists along the way, I've decided to pursue other interests in 2012 and won't be participating in this year's calendar project. However, if you're interested in learning more or would like to play in 2012, click here to pop over to Kate's . . . . and please tell her that I sent you her way!

Special Thanks

You may have noticed the addition of a new button on my sidebar. My heartfelt thanks to Susie Jefferson from First Floor Flat for her gracious, unexpected gift! Thanks to Susie, I can say: "Please, grab my button for your blog." What a wonderful gift - the gift of sharing! I'm sending lots of love your, way Susie!  Thank You!

With  many warm wishes for a wonderful day!

You certainly have a recognizable style for these calendars and I love the 'one word' journaling....I hope to be able to do that. I will miss your calendars, but I do understand the need to step out and do other things. hugs, Ruth
