Celebrate January Discoveries

Today's the Celebrate Link-up hosted by Ruth Ayres at Ruth Ayres Writes.  Stop and join the celebration!

The calendar turns to February, but as I look forward I want to take a second to pause and reflect on January.  As we entered 2014, I chose my word DISCOVER to be my lens for a new year.  Today I want to take a minute to recap some of my discoveries.  Some are new to me; others I just paused long enough to enjoy them or to see them differently.  Today I celebrate January's discoveries.

Mmmmm!  January discoveries:



Places and moments I loved in January:  



Books and blogs:  The Highlights






Let's see what February will bring.

    1. Elsie,
      I made these collages on my phone using InstaFrame and then saved them as a photo. They are then easy to embed in my post. I move between a few collage apps: InstaFrame, InstaCollage, and PicStitch. I really don't have a favorite at this time.

  6. We love how you did this celebrate -- a new text structure to think about and a book to add to our "to read" list --The Year of Billy Miller! Great to see you today.

    1. Mary Lee,
      You've inspired me to try mosaics. How do you make your mosaics? This time I used InstaFrame. I'm still moving between apps. I haven't really found a favorite.
