My stab at fauxbonichi

So, I decided to take the leap! I am now keeping a fauxbonichi journal every day! Twelve days into the new year - so far so good!

I've always thought my artistry skills were bad in this respect; I am not naturally talented in terms of drawing. But this is turning out rather cute! So I'm excited to continue.

Under the cut are four photos of my favorite pages so far!

I started with December 31, 2014 because New Year's Eve was so fun.

I just finished this page (today's!) a couple of minutes ago. I love how the tent turned out! I have been daydreaming about summer and camping allll day! I also conquered my laziness and went to the gym. Today was also day 1 of week 2 of Weight Watchers!

This is my favorite page so far. My two best friends and I went to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago on the 3rd. (You guys, if you're looking for a museum to go to in Chicago, they're all great. But MSI is the best! My favorite!) I drew some of our favorite things from the museum, including this giant sand-moving thing, the fairy castle dollhouse display, the Christmas trees from around the world, the tornado, the traveling Disney exhibit. It was such a nice day! At the bottom is the drawing of the Ethiopian food we had for dinner with another best friend we met up with. That drawing mirrors what our tray looked like exactly! LOL Ehtiopian is certainly an experience for an American eater. Very delicious! Anyway, I just love how this page turned out.

I wish I liked keeping a Hobonichi but it's just a style I don't enjoy! I love looking at everyone's adorable pages, though.

I don't think I could do it exclusively, without my written journaling as well, but I am enjoying it more than I thought I would!

I love the castle! I really need to post mine.

Thanks! I drew while looking at a photo of the castle, and I thought it went well!

Please do - I've been loving the hobonichi posts!
