My pile of finished index cards of the year is growing. I’m keeping them together on my desk with a rubber band for now. They record the summer days passing (all too quickly) in a hot fury.

Wonderful Pile of Index Cards summer 2019

I’m grateful to be able to take the time to create them, to have the joy of creating these little vignettes of color and inspiration. As much as they’re “for fun” they’re also important, because they’re part of my summer day(s).

I’m also grateful that I have this place so that I can share them with you guys!

I’ve created on about 32 index cards in June (see them here, here, here, and here), and now I’m creating a few more in July, because the challenge is set to be two months long, and I’m not a quitter. I go on. I force forward. I can’t give up now.

Here’s the first week of July, some collage and a whole lot of joyful watercolor.
