More of my daybook

This is everything spread out on the floor, somewhere that I tend to work a lot so that I can really spread out. I needed to make lots of piles. I'm still not completely finished but I wanted to share some of it here...

 It's a light blue binder from Russell and Hazel that I order on Amazon, it's a thin binder, but I like it that way and it holds everything that I really need. This is the front with a postcard that I love and at the top I have a paperclip with ribbon attached to mark the calender page and a little marker for the to do section and a tab that says create your passion. The side tabs are Plan, Somerset (this one I think I will change though) Projects, Self-care and Notes.
 The beginning of the book is a monthly daybook with seasonal ideas and inspiration, I'm still adding to this. This page is some spring inspiration. I will write in some things that I want to do during the months of March and April.

 This is my simple hand drawn calender and the picture on the right is an extra bit that I put in the back of the binder for this years goals.
 This is in the self care section with some pretty pictures and a list of relaxing things to do, I will be adding more to these pages as well.
It's really fun to put together and personalize your own binder. I will still be sharing more when I have some of the pages finished.

a couple of journal pages

For some reason it's been hard for me to get back into my creative routines during this new year, but I finally did some art journaling yesterday and it felt really good to be back at it. I'm sorry it took me so long to do any blogging, it feels good to be back at that as well.
These pages are kind of a mix from december and now.
This first spread was from Simple Abundance about writing a letter for the new year, so I tucked that inside an envelope and attached it with a paperclip. It will be fun to read it next year.

On these pages the inspiration was about home and retreats and what that means for me, my journal also feels like a retreat which is why I'm glad to be back at it. also a list of three activities that relax me...
art journaling
nature sketching

Happy new year everyone I hope it's been a good one so far.
