Expressing my creativity increases my productivity, helps me to connect spiritually and makes me happy so I am setting aside Wednesdays of each week for creative projects.
This week I completed my March calendar in my art journal. I will write a little note on each square about something that happened that day or something for which I am grateful.
The background for the March calendar resulted from my experimenting with acrylic paint. I have no artistic training, not even an art class in high school or college, and I am honestly afraid when I try a new art technique. I feel inadequate and untalented, but I forge ahead and if things don’t turn out the way I envisioned them, at least I have learned something.
I also added a few new items to my 2014 Vision Board. If you’d like to make your own, you can read How to Create a Vision Board here.

I really like your March calendar 🙂 the colors are very beautiful!
I try and write down an inspirational quote (a line from a song, something I’ve heard in a podcast or read in a book) in the blank space at the top of every page of my calendar. Like, I want to try and find something that inspires me on every single day of my life.
Great idea Andrea!
I love seeing your art journaling and creative projects. I wish I had the organizational skills like you to do this myself. 🙂
Thanks Maureen! Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can do it. I just started making it a priority once a week for 30 minutes to an hour and I leave my supplies on my desk so I can work on it a few minutes here or there. Be creative – you can do it! 🙂
I love the calendar idea of writing down something that you are thankful for that day. I am currently on bed rest so this would make a great project for me to do! Awesome idea!
I’m glad you like it Allison. I hope you feel better soon!
