My August page finished and ready to go. The beach huts and little boats are Stamps by Kate Crane for Stampotique and the little Balloon Boy is a stamp by Magda Polakow. I think I may have difficulty finding a pen to show my writing on these dark squares probably a white Uni-ball Signo pen will be best.


  1. Greetings Pat. Your calendar pages put mine to shame. I've been looking over your blog and I absolutely ADORE your calendar pages AND your art.

    I saw your link on dear Chris's blog, but was so busy in July with hosting Art Journal Journey and making ICADs (index cards) every day, I barely had time to breathe, much less meet new people. Now my life is a bit more relaxed and I would LOVE to visit you more often.

    Beside your awesome calendar pages, I totally agree with you on loving pets their entire life. I've always said "love me, love my cat." Now that I have two, they need to be treated equally, too, even though Bleubeard is the face of our blog.

    I hope your colorful and beautiful stamping will encourage me to do more of it, too. In that vein, I would love to add you to my left sidebar, so I would know when you update your blog. I will, however, not do it without your permission. Hope to hear from you soon.

  2. Hi Bleubeard and Elizabeth, Thank you for your lovely and kind comments re my art work. I will be very happy for you to add me to your sidebar.

  3. Wow Pat! I love how you have made your journal squares! This whole month looks exciting already! The little balloon boy is a fabulous stamp! Hugs, Chrisx
