ATC Project for February



pitt pen, watercolor, colored pencils

It's been awhile since I've created any ATCs so I decided to pull out some supplies and play a bit. I'm hoping it will help me get ready for my upcoming month long ATC project. I will be creating an ATC a day for each of the 29 days in February.

This is a project close to my heart (and hearts will find their way on many of them I'm sure). As some of you may know, my hubby left before Christmas to pursue a new career which requires him to be away from our home for about 5 months total. The holidays went quite well, lots of family and friends to be with. However as February approaches I've been feeling a bit down knowing that my hubby won't be here for Valentine's Day. It's always been a very special day for us as he proposed to me on that day and we've never been apart for any of them since being married!

A recent visit to this artist's blog was just the inspiration & spark that I needed - thanks so much Jeannine! She's involved in a year-long project of ATCs to mark each day while her hubby is away in the military.

Please be sure to visit and folllow along with my project:
Pieces of My Heart {29 Days of Love & Devotion}

I am so looking forward to sharing this with you all!

I love this atc! So colorful!

I am inspired by YOU and am excited to be able to witness your 29 Days of Love & Devotion unfold!

Gorgeous - I love the colors, patterns, design, and that wonderful border! I look forward to seeing your ATC creations - have fun!

I know you will get through your husband's trip away. Focus on the things you love, as I know you will.
