Summer has filled her veins with light and her heart is washed with noon. C. Day Lewis
In my last index card post I showed index cards from June 17 to 23, week 25 of the year. These are from week 26, the last week of June. I hope you like them. Let me know if you find a favorite.
This first one (above on a pink index card) is yet another intro card, because I felt like using the DaisyYellow quote about the ICAD challenge somewhere appropriate. This felt appropriate to me. I like it a lot more than my first intro card, that say “ICAD” witch bold, cut out, pasted letters.
I do stamp the date on both the front and the back of my index cards, mostly because otherwise I know I’ll get confused of where I am in the process, and forget how many I’ve done so far. And it’s great to see those dates on both sides when I’m flipping through my pile, as it let’s me sort them in the “right order”, which to me is chronologically of course.
I’m a sucker for chronology!
The good news / good things to remember stated in the clipping above are that 1) Sweden is a great place to become old(er) in, 2) what people dying regret the most is that they didn’t live their life as they wanted, but instead listened too much to what others thought, 3) bad news gets bigger media coverage than good news, but it does not reflect reality (!) and 4) this is a good one if you’re feeling misunderstood as a creative person; Walt Disney got fired from his first job because he lacked imagination and J.K.Rowling got refused 12 times for her manuscript about Harry Potter…
A day of resting. But also, a kawaii index card, right?
Let the world see your creativity!
ICAD June 30: 1800-talsveckan, about the 19th century event we participated in this weekend. It was very busy, but also interesting and awesome. I took quite a lot of photos that I will be sharing in a blog post as soon as I’ve edited them.
