Here is my journal page all ready for November for Kate Crane’s Calendar Challenge, time is just zipping by at the moment! I am fairly sure now that I will complete the whole year.
I wanted my spread to have a wintery feel so I used cool colours for the background and then contrasted with warmer tones for the days.
I really love the quote and it has been a sort of motto for me this year. I have done lots of things that previously I’d have been too scared to do and I am becoming braver and more self-confident.
I want to thank my friend Gretchen Miller for this – it was when I made my first Revo-lution Book as part of 21 Secrets 2011 that I first started to focus on the changes I wanted to make in my life and began to visualise my intentions. You can find out about the Revo-lution over at Gretchen’s blog Creativity in Motion . Just this week I have given presentations to two groups of strangers and I really enjoyed myself. Just a few years ago I could not have contemplated standing in front of people and talking. Inside there was a shouting voice telling me I wasn’t good enough and that I couldn’t do it, so of course I couldn’t. But I have quietened that voice and now what I hear is “You can do this, relax and have fun”. Thank you Gretchen for helping me in this way and I am so glad I met you in cyber space 🙂 Thank you also for the nomination as a Beautiful Blogger and when I get the time I will accept and nominate some of my favourite beautiful bloggers too.
And here is my completed October spread
Stay warm and safe people
