365 Journal and More


March was ready a week ago but I just didn't get round to photographing it.  The intention was to put some daffodils on March's page and I may yet do that.  Pop over to Kate's if you've not visited her before for more 365 Journals and also to see some of Kate's fantastic work.  February's colour looks very different from the pic I posted last month :-/  This is more true to life.
Some weeks ago Pat and I went to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts show at Event City Manchester.   We met up with Christine; who we first met at a show in the GMEX, Manchester a couple of years ago (now Manchester Central but I'm stubbornly sticking to GMEX), we just got chatting to her, as you do ;-) and Jo who I'd also met before.  Jo was there with her lovely friendly hubby and she got him to take a few pics.  The other lady in the pic is another Ann who is a friend of Jo's.  Left to right is Jo, Christine, Pat and me, with the other Ann behind Pat.

At the doll group (though we actually do much more than make dolls) we are doing some art journalling, one of our members who is very much into art journalling and steampunk art is doing a workshop with us.  Here's a page out of mine. 
 We all have a theme, mine's quotes which I need to start collecting!  To see more pop over to http://craftydollybirds.blogspot.co.uk/.

The March page is gorgeous, reminds me of crocus's, would also blend in more than daffs.
Feb page looks great too.

I realize I'm late getting here, but I was not up to par before. I was delighted to read that you had posted, because I was so worried about you only blogging once a month. I was delighted to read that all is well, though.

It was fun to see you with Jo. I "met" her through WOYWW and when I saw the photo, I immediately knew it was her even before I read the name.

But I guess I'm here to talk about your calendar. I love the subtle colors of March and February's hearts are superb. But most of all, I like your new blog banner and blog icon. Really cool!!
