November Calendar page

 Hi everyone, if you read the squares for October you'll have some idea of how busy we've been.

I was hoping for a bit of a let up for November but already have four appointments booked in various places and a day train trip to Birmingham!

I have rushed my calendar page as this is the first day I have had this week to do it. Now I see it I can see missed colouring and poor choice of colours but I do need to start filling it in!

I would also like to join Jo with her 'Nature' theme at Art Journal Journey.

I used a combination of big leaves and delicate berries with some Paper Artsy Stamps (I'm sure you recognise the berries by Alison Bomber of Words and Pictures)

The smaller leaves are by Aall and Create and the animals are washi tape.

Here is October's page

I had my page opened last week and hubby asked me if I had noticed something - I hadn't - I had been using my calendar for the best part of the month with November as the month so I have stamped October onto a piece of orange paper to cover it (Did I mention I have been a bit stressed and fuzzy with my medication issues?)

Thanks for looking, Chris

Your new calendar is loely, I don't know what you're complaining about! I know what you mean with many appointments, I also am always on the way to an doctor or therapist, and I hate losing so much time! Hugs, Valerie

Thank goodness for Tony. Love the amended October page, gorgeous colours.
Oh dear, your lovely November page is going to be booked up in no time I can see. I just wish it could have had Sizergh on it yesterday when we went up. Perhaps when the health issues are sorted, if its not one of us it's the other.
Take care, Hugs, Neet cx

Wonderful calendar spreads Chris! November is a beauty.
I hope you have a less busy and stressful November. xx

Wow, dear Chris, your October seems really VERY busy!
I think if your November is filled like this, then you will no longer be dissatisfied with your choice of colors, because then everything will be peppered with colorful experiences. You hit the topic of nature well. (I HOPE that these are mostly positive experiences, the trip to Birmingham certainly sounds like it.)
All the best and a cozy November weekend!

PS: Thank you for sharing your experiences with a retirement home. If you have time to look at my current post, you will see a few room plans of one of the residences in my PS. By the way, we don't want to share an apartment with our friends, we just want to move into the same residence (if possible) :-D

Love your calendars Chris, I do recognise the berries but not the leaves, I will have to look for them as they look great (of course I don't need more stamps but still...)
