Calendar Art

 
I have enjoyed Terri Kahrs calendar art
for 6 months now. Then I had a light bulb
moment.!! (duh) Since I am no good at
keeping a diary but always wonder what I 
did last year at this time, I could join this 
group and do a artsy type calendar. This 
I could attempt. So thank you queen of the arts
Ms. Terri Kahrs over at Pringle Hill Studio 
for alerting my grey cells to another fun project.
Drop over and see her calendar for May. It's a WOW!
Actually this was all started by Kate 
who lives just North of London UK.
Drop by there to see her lovely blog.
So I am off and running on another fun project,
plus filling my Grow journal with watercolors
of what is growing around Wildflower.
Click on the photo's for a closer look at what is
happening in my "exciting" (yawn) life. 
OOPS! I forgot to tell you what I used to 
make this. I used Copic markers and Micron pens!

Ohhhh, Sharon!!! You've got me blushing with all of your sweet words!!! Thanks for the more than honorable mention, but I must say . . . I ADORE your calendar and am so happy that you've joined in. Once the big page is finished, it's fun to add something to each little 'day'! Sending lots of hugs and sunshine your way!!! Terri xoxox

This is so bright and cheery. Great way to add art to your daily life and keep track of day to day and year to year. My Grandma always diaried on her calendar and knew each day and month and year what happened of significance. Me? Not so good at the transfer of year to year. Happy calendaring...

I think it's a great idea - I love June with its umbrellas.

What a brilliant idea and lovely designs around the edge of the calendar. This will be so fun to look back on next year. I know I enjoy it in January when I fill in my new calendar with all the birthday dates from my old one and see all the notes I have made throughtout the year. Sometimes I think I don't do much but I really do. :-)
