Update to the hearts: the flowered heart is an old shirt! I did not embroider it.

These are the journal pages for the last Calendar Journal I worked on for 2008. Sandy had chosen a wall calendar and it was so different (to me) from the other book-type journals that I was frozen in terms of how to handle the journaling. Sometimes it doesn't take much to rattle me. So I decided to use fabric and then use utility tags for significant dates. The journaling is in the beading. A bead represents each day of the month, and there are paydays and weekends and birthdays, etc. what do you think? It's different if nothing else. Happy days.

These are beautiful hearts! I love that you recycled an old shirt into a heart! I save t-shirts and some of my kid's clothing to cut up and use in something....someday.....I'm a pack-rat! Oh yeah, and I'm also a fabric hoarder! Ever check out a blog called Cicada Daydream? Beautiful fabrics!
