So how is the first month of the year treating you? I have to admit January is probably my least favourite month but I wanted to start this new year on a positive note so I decided to look for the good and concentrate on things that make me happy. I wanted to create a spread in my travellers notebook to highlight some things that I enjoy about January so I dug out my Annie's Paper Boutique stamps and got to work!
My January spread
The start of a new year always makes me feel like I have been given a blank slate, the past is over and done with and I have a whole new year full of possibilities to look forward too! The Choose Happy set sums up this feeling perfectly so I used a couple of these stamps to remind me to keep trying to achieve my goals and to make each day a little better than the one before.
I added a mini calendar to the spread to keep track of whether I reached my move goal each day (so far so good!) and I am using the little tick stamp from the Check It Off set to mark off the days I complete my goal.

Goals and memories
On the second page I used a cute snowflake stamp from the How's the weather? set because I love snow days when you can stay at home in the warm or go out and play if you are feeling brave! I also used a coffee stamp from the Drinks & more set because there's nothing better than a nice hot drink to warm you on a cold day.
The journaling card is there for me to record my favourite memories of the month and the last part of my spread is my goals for the year. I used three stamps from the Title It set for my personal, financial and family goals and now they are committed to paper I think I will be more inclined to try and complete them over the course of the year!
