A New Year and a New Arrival

2011 has begun and I have prepped pages in my enormous A3 note book ready to start a new year in the 365 journal challenge. (Do go to The Kathryn Wheel to find out more.)
But this year I am determined to break rules. Obviously - I hope! - not the legal and ethical ones which make for a civilised society but the many which I have in my own head. For example this year I won't use squares in straight lines for my 365 journal. I've decided to go a bit freestyle and write randomly on the page. I might well go further and not even write something for every single day. I'm sure I will in fact simply work to another set of rules on this and other projects but a change is as good as a rest, or so they say.
Anyway, here is my January page ready for writing.

And here is the new arrival refered to in the title - Huckleberry. We got him on bank holiday Monday so he is still very timid and more than a little manic in his new home, but very cute and amusing and a diversion from getting on with things, hence the late start with my journal.

It occurs to me that I never posted last December's page when finished: so just to prove that I did in fact finish what I started (unlike all the bags of half knitted jumpers and other partially completed projects behind the sofa) here is a wonky snapshot as evidence.


  1. Love that snowman. Do you have to write in every day? Enjoyed the Masterclass in CS.

  2. Glad I'm not the only one with bags of half knitted jumpers!!
    Love the calendar,especially the freedom you have given yourself with the pages. And well done for finishing 2010. Didn't we do well?!
    Huckleberry is more than cute :-)

  3. Hey, long time no blog! Are you ok? Life keeping you busy? Hope you're ok. Byeeeee Kate x
