In a moment of madness the other night, I decided to join the Calendar Challenge over on The Kathryn Wheel - It's a brilliant idea and a great way of recording random trivia over the year. Yes, I know it's Jan 5th already, but better late than never.
It really needs to be done in an A4 book, so you can get a month over a double page spread, but as my New Years rez no. 1 is to Use All The Stuff I Have Bought Over The Years And Stuffed Into A Drawer, I decided to dig out an A5 spiral bound book with black pages that I got a while ago, for........er, something or other.
I took the spiral binder off first, so that the pages don't contaminate each other - heaven forbid I should make a mess, LOL. - when I've done them all, I can stick it back together again.
Being black, it's turning into a bit more of a challenge than I first thought, but thankfully my paint dabbers haven't quite dried up yet, so that's what I used for my first month. Hopefully I'll come up with lots of other ways to make it all show up. Either that or I'll just give up, like I did with my New Year Diet.....
Defeatist talk I know, BUT...... so far, it's a lot more fun that depriving yourself of the last 5 choccies in the Quality Street tin, etc etc.
Because they're only A5 , January actually ended up being 4 pages, 5 if you count the title. My little squares for each day had to be cut slightly smaller so's they would all just about fit- let's hope nothing much happens on the 16th Jan.
Right, now I'd better get on and write something for the first five days.....I'm not much good at remembering what I did yesterday, never mind last week, but I'm sure I'll think of something:)
