It's February!!!

Well, it's February 1st! I can't believe how fast time flies. I guess that means we're having a lot of fun! And...we sure are! Sometimes I think it flies faster when you're keeping track of the days like I've committed to doing for 2012.

Early in January I posted about my commitment to the Art Calendar 366 Challenge. So, part of that commitment is to write down daily quick tidbits of what you want to remember. I really like this way of keeping track of our memories. It's quick and succinct! I do have an idea to compliment this that I plan to share in the coming days. Stay tuned.

So, for February here is my calendar page...

And...a couple of closeups...

Since I'm big on recycling, I used old manila file folders as the actual blocks for the days. Even the messy hearts are file folders cut up. I try not to waste anything!

I'm excited to see what the other participants have done for their pages. It's fun to learn other peoples' techniques and styles!

And...in case you might be interested, here are two pics from my completed January calendar...
