My Month In Numbers - February

Hi I'm back with my next installment of My Month In Numbers. Throughout February I've been busy counting and keeping note.
10 - the number of minutes before I was due to leave for the ICHF show at Bluewater to find out I wasn't going

46 - the amount paid for two tickets to see The Black Keys at Alexandra Palace

-10 - the temperature on the drive home and
34 - the number of icicles hanging by the front door

5 - the cost ($) of the Lucky Days embroidery pattern I bought

The pink hexagon hides some journalling about having to say a sad farewell to one of our much loved cats.

I had been pondering just how to record my numbers this month and when I found this notebook hexagon shape in the Silhouette online shop it seemed ideal especially when used with some really old notebook printed patterned paper I found stashed away. It even had some doodling printed on it that ended up in just the right place.

Have you been keeping numbers too? I received the comment 'Why are you counting icicles, do you not have anything better to do?' And if you want to find out why I've been counting visit Julie at Notes on Paper to learn more about My Month In Numbers.

Ha! Then clearly I've had nothing better to do over the entire last few years!

It's a lovey page - the hexies look great. Very nice colours too.

Thanks for joining me, I've pinned your post:

And thanks again, you know what for.

That's a whole lot of icicles. Definitely an interesting fact as I don't think I have seen one here all winter!

Great idea to write your journaling under the hexi, I may use that idea this month if you don't mind:)
