I am a huge procrastinator! These are the postcards from ihanna's international postcard swap (back in February!)

I've got to get off my butt and take more journal photos!

Calendar Page

You know how you can make a background and like it so much you don't want to do anything to it? That happened here. I managed to get these two elements on but didn't want to cover up the colors anymore than I had to. I found the huge calendar stamp at Michael's but couldn't afford to buy the huge acrylic block too, so I just used the back of one of my watercolor cases. Starving artists need to make do! I really like having calendar pages because you can reflect on a month at a glance and then go into detail about the days on their own pages.

What I've been up to the past week:

1. Went to the midnight premier of Eclipse. You may call me crazy, but I tell you no, the people who were there for the 3:30am showing are the truly crazy. Over 3000 came to our theatre for the midnight showing, then an extra couple thousand came so they had to do a later showing. Wow.

2. Signed up for a gym membership. My abs = ow.

3. Thought about cleaning for two seconds and decided to craft instead.
