Turning the Page April 2018

Tomorrow we turn the page on our calendars to a new month.

I make calendars each year and I've been sporadic about sharing them with you so
I thought I'd set up a regular post on the last day of each month "Turning the Page".

I hope you enjoy these posts.

Here's our April page.

By the way, the calendars are clipped together and can be displayed on an easel
or hung on a push pin or magnetic hook.  We all have a different way to display them.

In case you're interested, here's the latest on our daughter at the
They are fascinated with her phone!
It looks like one of them may be a budding photographer/blogger.

I've never tried to post a video here but I'd like to share this post
that Jenny put on Facebook.  I love hearing these children sing!
They put their heart and soul into it.  Here's the link.

Happy April!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Lovely blossoms - just like the ornamental cherry trees that are starting to bloom here in Vancouver. I love spring so much! I really enjoy seeing your monthly calendar pages. Thanks for the link to the video of the children singing - what lovely voices! I hope your daughter is enjoying her experience.

First, your cherry blossoms are gorgeous, Bonnie. Delicate and soft and beautifully watercoloured. Thank you so much for sharing the link to the children singing. It's the first thing I saw this morning (and heard) ... so uplifting. A wonderful way to start the day. xx

First of all, I was most taken with your daughter Bonnie and I loved your her video. I am going to forward it to my daughter in Raleigh who was in the Peace Corps.
I have been enjoying your cards for a good while and maybe I should just say I love all the art work you do especially with the water colors.
