Homemade Calendar – December
I’m pretty pleased with how December turned out considering I was way behind and had no idea what I was going to do for my monthly artwork until the eve of the 31st! Since this is the last month in my 2014 homemade calendar series, I want to take a moment to observe some things…
Homemade Calendar – November
Ok, I admit it: It’s become more about the art than crossing off the days. Which is great for getting in a minimum of one art project a month, but not for observing the date. I think next year I’ll go with a more practical calendar. December is always a variable time of year– lots…
Homemade Calendar – October
Here is October! November will include more revising, more planning the next project, and a couple little side things for fun. Also, though I’m not doing Nanowrimo myself this year, I plan to attend some write-ins and keep posting #nanowritetips each day on Twitter and Tumblr. What will you be doing this month?
Homemade Calendar – September
Here’s September! Man, I wish my scanner could do all those pinks justice. Focuses for this month will include manuscript revisions, planning for a November #writetip project, and a new approach I’m excited to try towards brainstorming story ideas. I’m also going to try to get into the habit of freewriting daily, even if it’s…
Homemade Calendar – August
Here’s August! I think it’s my favorite so far this year. It was also an incredible month! September will see revisions of one book, continued planning for the next, and at least one art or blog project. What are your goals for September?
Homemade Calendar – July
Here’s July! This time I experimented with collage and I’m excited to do something new for August. Goals for this month include, but are not limited to: Finishing up the first draft of my middle grade WIP (two chapters to go) Mapping out my next book!
Homemade Calendar – June
This month is brought to you by tropical Skittles. Skittles: taste the lurid color! And now on to July, in which I will continue the first draft of a project and have plans for several short term art works. Stay tuned for details! In the meantime, if you’re a fellow writer or book lover on…
Homemade Calendar – May
Here is the finished page I made for May, this month using nail polish, soft pastel chalks, and oil pastels to mark off the days. Originally I intended to use nail polish all the way through, but the polish wasn’t having any of it. In fact, I thought I’d ruined the month by the third…
Homemade Calendar – April
Materials for April’s homemade calendar page include colored Sharpies, one silver Galaxy marker, and a blue poster paint Sharpie. I swear I entered a timewarp this month– I can’t believe April is over already! My WIP went through another 2-3 drafts, with material added, cut, rearranged, and tightened and the word count fluctuated from 87…
Homemade Calendar – March
Last month I shared the first page of my homemade 2014 calendar. This week I bring you the completed March: Materials this time included paint pens and permanent markers. I’m IN LOVE with Craftsmart’s gold foil! Looking ahead to April, my month’s goals include but are not limited to: Completing Draft 3 of my WIP…
