A year in journaling



So, did you manage to keep up all year?! I did, but just about! Life is permanently hectic and I find that the difficult bit is having the page for each month ready in time. Filling in each day takes very little time, as long as you have your page ready in the first place....

I am amazed at the ongoing popularity of this challenge; seems like many of you still want to play along and as always at the start of a new year there is renewed interest. If you are a newbie to this challenge then a very warm welcome to you :-)

Don't forget, every month you can link your creation on the blog here (where the link will remain open for the entire month), or on flickr here, and now there is a *new* and very active group on facebook here, so there are lots of ways for you to join in! And do have a look at what everyone else is creating - I am in awe at the creativity that is out there in cyberspace ... the calendar pages this year have been truly wonderful and inspiring. My heartfelt thanks to all of you that join in, play along and continue to make this challenge a success xoxox

One of the great things about keeping on top of this type of journaling is looking back over a completed year. I can now say with confidence that I know what I have been doing every day for the last three years. (Except for the days where I forgot to fill it in LOL!)

So, without further ado, here is my 2012:













2013? I'm ready! Bring it on!! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

  12. Thanks for, once again, hosting this fun calendar challenge! I don't conform very well but you help me stay on task and I try to encourage everyone I know to keep some sort of journal/diary. I love looking back on what has happened, big and small events, over the year.

  16. Using my Microsoft translator, I was able to leave my link and a comment. Your pages are always so very colorful and well done. I really MUST learn to do better, because I feel like I'm not really creating a colorful page, just a calendar. Thanks as always for your awesome inspiration. And count me in for 2013, too.

  21. I am attempting my first calendar. My question is about dimensions. How large is your page and how large are your daily squares?

    Thanks
