2010 365 Art Journal Calendar

Like so many I am wondering how April went so quickly!

I went from this.......

......to this!

In no time at all! & when my next pages are complete we will be half way done! Goodness!

I'm suffering with a really sore heel at the moment & it's making everything so difficult including crafting but I'm happy to say I'm up to date! & grateful for the push to keep crafting.xx

May pages & I've started filling in!

For more on my exciting news! please see my last post. Altho, I'm sure everyone knows by now!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for all your very kind comments.XXX We are still pinching ourselves. :D

I love May & make no apologies for using lots of pink! I just love cherry blossom trees & my last birthday present from my mum was a young tree which I treasure dearly.

This months sees our 20th Wedding Anniversary on the 19th May & the church where we got married has cherry blossom trees framing the doors to the church & the grounds ...... 2 days before our Wedding it rained & rained & rained & there wasn't any blossom anywhere to be seen!!

We are very lucky to live where there are quite a few cherry blossom trees around & it's lovely to go for walks this time of year. My 3 yr old thinks they are wonderful! such simple joys!

I really hope everyone has a wonderful month & that it's a safe & happy one.

For more art journal calendar pages pop over to The Kathryn Wheel.

Kate's creations are so wonderful & inspirational. It's always a pleasure to visit Kate's blog. :)

Remember, you can join the challenge any time. Thanks for looking & a BIG, big Thank You if you get chance to leave me a comment. Enjoy the l o n g weekend. Hugs, Gez.xx

  33. Hello, I think your website may be having web browser compatibility problems.

    When I take a look at your blog in Safari,
    it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, excellent site!
