something new for 2011














this year it is a priority for me to do a personal journal.  each month i will journal a page or two from a journal prompt i pick at random.  maybe you would like to work along with me this year. at the end of the year you could have a nice personal journal too. if you couldn't already tell, this month my prompt is:  what color makes you happy?  i could have picked a few colors but there is something about this red pair of shoes i have that i just love and they became my inspiration.  if you ask yourself what color makes you happy, what would you say?

if you want to join along, please join the flickr 2011 journal prompt group at:  http://www.flickr.com/groups/1570781@N20/

  1. Oh what a joyous page. I just love hot colours this time of year when it is so cold and miserable - so hot reds, yellows, greens, pinks - so hard to choose just on!

    I'll be following along with you - I am on a quest to do a 'decent' journal this year
