2014 Calendar pg

I have joined the Kathryn Wheel (Kate Crane) to do the 2014 Calendar.  I love, love, love painting pages for journals and this is considered the "lazy person's calendar journal".  LOL  What a great way to keep track of little things that happen each day.  The squares on Kate's calendar are 1 1/2" squares.  I did mine 1 3/4" X  1 1/2".  I have trouble writing too much and

thought that 1/4" would help me out!  LOL  I started out to make mine look a little Asian, but, due to life happenings, it was not going to happen before I needed to get my "squares" down.  I did a little doodling and added some dots and stars.  I wrote "Happy New Year" numerous times on both pages.

Below is a closeup of some of my doodling.  The little horn for celebrating New Year's.  The star and the greeting.

I used the remains of a pop dot container to draw my dots.  I first colored them in with a black ink pen then went back over them with a red Prismacolor pen.

Another section with the dots.  I can't wait to make my other pages!  If you have not seen Kathryn's calendars, go to and feast your eyes on some glorious color!

Christmas Time

 The Christmas tree at my youngest daughter's house on Christmas Eve was truly surrounded by gifts.
 Christmas and kids.............the perfect combination!  All 7 of our grandchildren.
Our two 7 year-old grandchildren were thrilled to read the story of Jesus Born in Bethlehem.
