I have signed up to participate in a month long challenge called "30 Days of Lists" that started today.

I first heard about it from my friend Vanessa, who recently posted about it on her blog as she was getting a little book put together to keep her lists in.  The organizers describe it as follows:  "30 Days of Lists is a semi-annual journaling challenge for Listers, from Kam of Campfire Chic and Amy of Lemon and Raspberry.  Not everyone can make a mini scrapbook every week or an art journal page every night. 30 Days of Lists is our encouragement and challenge to you that you CAN journal just something every day — even something as small as a list."  It sounded like fun, so I signed up. Yesterday.  (I'm impulsive that way!)

I want to use as much as I can from the art supplies I already have on hand, so I decided to use this small (4 x 6 inch) Tim Holtz binder. Luckily, I knew exactly where it was stashed and I was able to find it quickly and easily.
I am also going with a vintage theme, which will give me an excuse to use some of my delicious antique invoices, ticket stubs and ledgers and whatever else I can get my hands on.  I also have a number of scrapbook papers with a vintage vibe, I am looking forward to mixing them in as well.

Today's topic is "things you may have heard about me".  Here are the 2 pages I made for day 1, featuring an old photo of myself from 1963.

Here's a closeup of each page:

Many thanks to Maria, who can be found on Etsy and Instagram @OneCraftChick, who made the prompt headings and shared them with our group.
