This year I’m participating in ICAD, which stands for Index Card A Day. There’s a weekly theme with daily prompts. I managed to make a card each day, so I have 13 cards finished. I share them on my Facebook blog the day I create them and I’ll write a weekly post with more info here. You can find the theme and prompts for week 1 at Daisy Yellow.
This journaling challenge started with a crochet hook and music tape!
And this was my very first card. I used this pattern to crochet FAME.
The prompt for day 2 took me back to the basisschool (school for 4-12 year old children) of my daughters! I wrote with my left non-dominant hand.
My card for day 3, I just liked this Snoopy pattern.
For day 4 I cut an old piece of a book report (which was typed on my old typewriter) in strips and used part of it to make a new story. The book report was about the Dutch book De Kleine Johannes by Frederik van Eden, a book I had to read for school exams, many, many years ago.
I made a collage for day 5. The Dutch proverb says: have your head in the clouds.
I didn’t have to think long about the list I wanted to make for day 6, but it wasn’t easy to pick only 10 stitches. If I had to make a list today, I’m sure it would be different!
And the last card for the first week. I drew circles and part of circles. Then I doodled before I added colour.

You can also follow this blog at Facebook. From time to time there will be extra posts there or sneak peeks of the things I'm working on. In June and July I’m posting my cards for ICAD there on the day I create them. Here I will write a weekly post about them with more info.
