365 Calendar 2012 finished (well almost)!!

December 31, 2012

It’s 31 December 2012 at 22:42hrs and you could say I’m cutting it fine but I did finish my calendar pages in 2012 – just about.  I created November and December’s pages on 24/25/26 December so it was only just in time. Sorry the photos are not great quality I don’t have much luck with cameras.

I was going to do a ‘Movember’ themed page but it just didn’t happen and I just used a rainbow of Dylusions inks with a dragon fly stamp by Squiggly Inks.

December had a little more thought put into it, I used Dylusions inks for the background and some freebie stamps from Craftstamper. Then I drew fairy lights around the edge and coloured in the baubles with some promarkers that I got for Christmas.  The day squares were a parcel stamp that I used just the bow on in a rainbow of inks.  I drew the letters for the month and coloured them in like candy canes and in ‘real life’ it doesn’t look quite as manic as it does in this picture.

I really hope I can keep up with this challenge in 2013 as I have really enjoyed doing it.  I am determined not to let work get in the way which has been my main issue in the latter part of 2012.

Right now time to go and see the new year in!  Happy New Year everyone!!!

Aaaaaargh!!!

December 8, 2012

It’s 8 December and I haven’t even started my November calendar page yet, let alone my December one. I’m so annoyed as I really enjoyed this challenge at the start of the year when I had more time to do it.  I will be doing 2013 and hope that I’ll be able to keep up a bit better than the end of this year.

Work has become even more manic so I need to figure out a way to stop it getting in the way of my creativity.  I can only do so much and need to accept that and spend more time making things!!
