The New Year
A year to be glad in,
Not to be sad in,
A year to live in,
To gain in and give in;
A year for trying,
And not for sighing,
A year for striving,
And hearty thriving;
A bright New Year,
Oh, hold it dear;
For God Who sendeth,
He only lendeth.
I absolutely LOVE a brand new year, don’t you?
I think it’s that “fresh slate” thing.
Nothing like a new planner, a new calendar, or a new sketchbook to get me “up and doing.” And a new old project to bring to completion.
Or maybe “completion” isn’t the best word to use?
Since art journaling is kind of a lifelong project?
It’s basically a “get you started” project that I’m finishing up.
Anyway, the long-awaited, updated and revised, packed neatly into a printable PDF, Art Journaling Through the Seasons book is on its way!
Each month’s page will be posted at the beginning of the month (I’m shooting for the first Monday of the month!), along with some posts that will elaborate on the monthly activities. The printable PDF will be available by the end of January, along with a Facebook group you can join if you’d like to share what’s happening in your (or your kids’!) art journals.
Speaking of kids… theses pages were originally created for homeschooled children, but kids of all sort have enjoyed them. And many moms are keeping art journals now too! They’re also created to be a springboard for your own journaling adventure… feel free to add your own ideas, search for poems or quotes that touch your heart or stir your senses, and draw whatever catches your eye! Permission granted to hop down any bunny trails that look fun!
And without further ado…
