Last day of the month and the end of a good week......

 

Today is Friday, and the day I can participate in my two favorite Linky parties, Kate at The Kathryn Wheel Monthly Calendar and Julie Balzer's Art Journal Every Day.

So, here goes...............IMG_3513

This is my introduction to my December calendar and a much better picture than the one below, showing the facing pages.  You get the idea....the blank side will be filled in with my daily "comings and goings"!

IMG_3511 I kinda' stretch the monthly calendar rules by making my calendar much more journal like, but still my monthly calendar.....the last half of December 2012 will be recorded on these pages, below, I will journal in and around the circles!IMG_3514

Finally, last June I did a 6 month recap of classes I had taken, special family happenings and general good memories....so, in keeping with my new tradition, I am doing the same thing again by highlighting special memories from July thru December 2012.

These could be considered my "gratitude" pages!  It's fun to glance back and be reminded of all the good things that happen in our lives.

Join me by visiting Julie and Kate's blog and I know you will be inspired.

Lots of great ideas here, Jan. I like the idea of writing in circles! The recaps are excellent also. Nice pages.

I have to rethink my monthly calendar, since I am now out of room in my old one. I love how you treat yours, but I don't want to write more than a tiny square's worth (grin). I do certainly appreciate yours, though.

You definitely have the most unusually interesting art pages! You are becoming a star, you know...or are you already a star? I think you are!!!

I especially like your "gratitude" page. What a wonderful glance back at the good things we tend to overlook or (in my case) forget!
