My January Calendar!!!

I am so excited that I finally finished my January calendar.  It certainly took me long enough, but I am confident that February's calendar won't take nearly that long.  Especially since I have a crop on Saturday and plan to get it well under way before I leave.

A HUGE thank you once again to Kate Crane!!!  Without her encouragement and caring, I probably would have abandoned the project with a, "I'll just try again next year" mentality as I usally do.  Now that January is behind me, I feel a bit more confident that each month I will only get better.

I'll admit, the quality of the photo isn't perfect, but I wanted to get this posted in a hurry since I made a deal with myself and my blog that I would be finished by the end of the day today.
I used a new Unity Stamp from the "Love Life" collection which captured my mantra for January.  To work hard to realize some dreams I have been chasing for quite some time.  Art journaling is the one thing I am determined to do this year.  This calendar and my art journal are two things I intend to pursue without fail. All other stamps are by Tim Holtz.

I used Fancy Pants papers from their "Tradition" line.

Thanks for looking!
