#whimsybykelly2015 Day 26

Today's creativity is more mental than visual.
I have been prepping some projects to work on. In order to create we have to sometimes prepare.

My index card list of challenges has been prepped to be a journal at the end of the year. I basically punched three holes across the tops of the cards and scored them. I plan on doing the japanese binding again and with the cards scored you can flip up and see each page. I also took 12 colored index cards and prepped them to put the months on and the monthly challenges. I found an art monthly challenge, a ATC challenge, and a challenge involving a deck of playing cards that I may try but probably won't actively participate in. I wrote the week's dates on the tops of the cards and right now am keeping them together with rubber bands.

I sorted through my photos to try and complete at least one of my scrapbooks. It is kind of a family/genealogy scrapbook. Since I don't really have the money to buy scrapbook paper I will probably be decorating the white pages I have with my Pigma pens and Derwent colored and inktense pencils. Hopefully I can purchase some paper later for the really special papers.

I have been using my journal I made the other day to play a little bit in and take notes while watching YouTube.

While doing all this I found some stencils that I bought years ago and have been looking for for the last 5 years. Happy, happy, joy, joy.


  1. That's a great idea for the index cards. I'm finding myself getting a little (or a lot) lost in the challenges I've signed up for.
    How fun to find those "missing" purchases. I'm going to clean through some of my stuff today. Wonder what I'll find!

    1. Thank you. It's always fun to find stuff.
