Hi lovely, I’m starting a monthly highlights art journal link party today, giving us a chance to reflect on and celebrate the goodness in our lives, so please stick around to the end of the post for more details on how to link up. If you’re new to art journalling, there’s also a tutorial on how to create an art journal page using things you probably already own. No fancy art materials needed!

I feel kind of sorry for Kirby. By the time his birthday rolls around on January 10, we’re all partied out.

He loves going there.
I’m on it for next year though, planning a transportation themed party. I don’t think we need to worry he’ll grow out of his car, plane and train obsession by then.
I also got my ticket for Britmums Live, which is very exciting. I haven’t been to a blog conference before. It’s my birthday that week, so I’m sure I’ll find a way to celebrate while I’m there.
These are some of my favourite moments from January:
Now it’s over to you!
Please join up your monthly highlights page using the link up tool below, then go show some comment love to some of the other people on the list. You can link up any time this month, until about 5 minutes before the next one goes live (6 pm GMT the first Thursday of every month). Also, if you like this idea, please spread the word. The more, the merrier!
