365 Journal days

 Happy New Year everyone. 

For the past 12 months I have been taking part in Kate Cranes 365 journal challenge here 

Its the first time I have done journaling and its defiantly the longest I have ever stuck with anything!  A whole year!!

Here is the roundup of my year 

 The Olympic torch came through our village....it was great to see the streets lined with people and everyone cheering
 My book started falling apart in Jun so I had to wind some fancy wool around it to hold it all together!

 Nice and 'hot' colours for August....just to remind me that it is actually summer....wettest one for more than 100 years, west country flooded again!

I couldn't resist adding some leaves and apples to September's page....apples are so important here in the west country....cider!  Drink of the gods!!

Then it starts all over again (albeit in a larger journal so I have more room to decorate!)

For those of you who have been thinking of joining in...I can thoroughly recommend it, once the page is decorated each day only takes a minute....and its been great reading through the years enteries and remembering what I have been up to (memory isnt quite what it used to be!!!).

Happy Crafting
