366 calender challenge

Happy Monday :))
While I was visiting the US, I picked up the latest issue of Somerset Studio and the article that struck me most was about  Kate Krane, and her art calenders.  I have been writing in those tiny Hallmark datebooks since I was 15, and  when I saw her beautiful project I was immediately hooked! so I joined her 2012 challenge.
This is my January spread. I made my own 8x5'' journal out of watercolour paper and card stock, and followed  this tutorial on how to bind your own book.
Meanwhile I'm crocheting like crazy and working on this new painting :)
Have a most creative week!!


  1. Glad you are having fun with the calendar challenge, too! Valerie

I'm sorry to hear about your sleeplessness - my brother hasn't slept properly for years and I really feel for him because it affects his whole life. Hope you soon get to the root of it and can sort it. Lovely work and such talent x
