The first spread included a page of what’s been on my nightstand and a page of the cats in February.
The second spread is made up of Studio Calico cards embellished with me & my BIG ideas stickers.
The second spread talks about how I entered February without him…
…how I’m missing him, not knowing what happens next (still don’t)…
…how I’m broken-hearted, not able to do it, but doing it anyway…
…and things rough around the edges and ducky signs from God.
‘Be Brave’ in a big gold foil jumbo mambiSTICK sticker inevitably comes next, especially over the page documenting my Valentine’s Day. Bravery’s been a big theme this month.
I stuck it to a trimmed to size transparency sheet, and when you lift the transparency, there’s a copy of my Valentine’s Day selfie with the story of the day.
I included a letter I wrote to my Grandma about my sister and I going down to visit her in Florida at the end of March, and February’s wishlist.
Another jumbo mambiSTICK stick in silver foil reading ‘Carpe Diem’ seemed fitting to stick on a transparency over the letter since my sister and I are going to seize the first few days of April and go vacation in Grams’ Floridan condo!
The final spread documenting the first three weeks of February is made up of a page reviewing the book Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon.
The opposite page documents my relationship to the gym and some happy mail.
