A series of art journal pages where I pick a word for each letter of the alphabet and journal about it day by day. To find out more about the beginning of this project, please read the first post here.

I cannot believe that I’m already to the last letter Z. It’s been a great month doing something creative daily with AEDM and journaling from A-Z. It really has helped to have the guideline of A-Z and I understand why folks like prompts and such. Makes the process easier, but of course you can go wild from there as well. For this last page, I chose the word zany. In the dictionary it’s defined as meaning ludicrously or whimsically comical; clownish. I especially like the clownish reference because my husband has a tendency to call people a clown when they are being silly – but the word in Italian is a lot cuter and endearing to me, pagliaccio or pagliacciata for a feminine and cuter version. I don’t really take the word as negative or meaning a simpleton… it’s sort of like being cute and unique to me. I’m certainly a bit silly and whimsical when I’m just myself. I think people perhaps don’t see that side of me a lot, but my husband surely does and I love the fact that I can just say it all out loud and ask those silly questions that run through my head. Do a little hop skip and dance with a finishing pose… it’s the freedom when you feel like a kid again. Life should always be like that, right? Being weird without worrying that it’s weird. If that makes sense…

So I’ve really enjoyed this series of posting my art journal pages and participating with AEDM as well. Go check out all the other folks participating and big thanks for Leah from Creative Every Day for starting it all up. I definitely look forward to this month – it’s like collective creative energy together as a group. Thank you to everyone who left encouraging and thoughtful comments, especially this month as I pulled through the series. As the holidays are nearing though, I’m going to try and catch up with a lot of other things… there’s lots of excitement in our household… I will post when I can 🙂 Yeah, I’m keeping y’all in suspense…
