Cabin Daze

Five Days at the Cabin (larger)

We recently spent five days with good friends at our cabin in the Sierra mountains, eating, relaxing and inventing cocktails. Inspired by Amanda Kavanagh’s wonderful travel pages, I decided to make a chart of our grand adventures.

This was was a blast to do, especially adding the watercolor. I laid out the page the first day, then filled in a new column each evening. I really like how it came out.

Coming up next, sketches from the trip!

    Yes, this is a great idea! I used to do something similar years ago. A good way to journal a trip without getting bogged down in all the details, but still including them.

    I have always loved Amanda’s tanning calendar page and now I love yours too! I think it will be a great addition to my second Southampton week when we return with our daughter mid-August.
