Documenter of Life

At any given time, if you look into my massive shoulder bag/purse, you will find:

 

  1. A calendar/planner

  2. An art journal/sketchbook, and

  3. A diary or notebook of some sort 

 I always have these vital things with me as I attempt to keep track of my crazy schedule and document my life at the same time.  Whenever I try to downsize and carry a cute little clutch or stylish pocketbook, I am always missing one or more of those crucial items!  Inevitably there will be something scenic I want to sketch; some important event I need to write down, or a momentous idea that must be preserved on paper.

 In my pursuit of finding the “perfect” calendar/journal I realized that it just didn’t exist, so I decided to create my own!  I combined all three books into one and have the ultimate journal that I can’t wait to open everyday and fill full of schedules and paintings and lists. I created it to suit my crazy, art-filled, hectic life!

 

I have my weekly view calendar . . .
