March in my EveryDay Journal

I am quite proud of the fact that I am still working in my EveryDay Journal and that it's up to date.  I blogged about February and today it's the turn of March.

I started by using a piece of scrapbooking paper and drew out the days.  I added the letters for March.  During the month I added the quote and put the washi tape on the left hand side.

I have rather a lot of washi tape so I am using it to decorate my journal.  At the top of these pages are the words from the new Hillsong song 'Who you say I am'.  I continued writing a verse each day from Mary Brack's Lent Words.

Since January I have booked more workshops and courses so I put the information about these on these pages.

I have tried to do at least 3 things each day.  I have found it most beneficial to have planned things to do through the week.  When I know I'm going to be out all day I don't put things in to do.

I've started a 40 day mark making challenge with some friends and to keep me on track I have written that in for each day.

And so the month has ended and I have prepared the pages for April including the monthly calendar.  I have used a stencil to 'doodle' on the edge of the page.  I have done this before when I was at Valerie's art journaling workshop last year (she's doing another one this year) but was reminded of the technique by a recent blog post by Michelle Ward.

In the EveryDay Journal - Living Your Word of the Year group we have decided to give verse-mapping a try during April.  I've never done it before so I shall be interested to see how I get on.

You may have noticed that I haven't actually mentioned my word of the year in March.  Although I have been extremely thankful throughout the month it really hasn't caught my intention in my journal.  I am wondering whether to choose another word.   I'll continue to mull it over.

Thanks for joining me today.
