ICAD, Index-Card-a-Day 2013, day 1

This year has been a very different year for this blog, while last year I blogged two or three times a week, this year I have barely kept up with two or three times a month.  At the beginning of the year I found this quite distressing because I love this little blog but I soon realized that this is just a different year.  Each blog post has it's own little life and story and if they are not as frequent as in the past, so be it. 

Today marks the half way point of 2013 so maybe this is a good day to start something new.  This morning reading my favorite blogs in bed with coffee at my side I found out about Index-Card-a-Day 2013.  You create anything and everything on an index card for June and July, 61 day in a row!  This is just what I need to get my creative juices flowing.

This is my first submit.  Hungarian folk art flowers drawn in pencil, ink and marker on a pink index card that I have literally had around since college.  I used to take notes on these and I must have bought a HUGE package because I still have a nice stack left.

So here's to trying something new.  I'm not sure if I will post every day or save up a few to post at once.  I will definitely post to the Daisy Yellow Flickr group every day.

Head over to Tammy's lovely blog Daisy Yellow to learn more.


  1. Love this flower! A great start to the challenge, I look forward to seeing your cards when you do post, and will keep an eye out on the Flickr group. :)

  2. Very beautiful! Have a nice Sunday! xxx Riitta

  3. That's such a good way to keep creative, I should take a lesson from it! Your drawing is so pretty.xx

  4. How pretty, the pink on pink is very nice! I'm an inconsistent blogger. Some times I post regularly, other times I wander off. I think that's okay though. I love your blue painting below too, just lovely...
