So...I think it took me about thirty days to finish thirty pages complete with 40 quotes and I'm so pleased with the finished project. All of my favorite quotes in one place, that I can pick up and read over and over again when I need a boost of inspiration. Each of the smaller images can be enlarged by clicking on them and you can view the rest of the pages here and here.
There is something special about working on a large creative project like this...it helps me work through struggles I have with my studio work and also allows my imagination to soar, playing with different media and colour. Over half the pages were removed with some being used in other pages which helps the book lie fairly flat and I find it interesting this way. Most of the pages have been adhered to at least one other page and in some cases many other pages.
I love it when my daughters are inspired to create something of their own when they watch me create, too, and am always interested to see how different their work is from mine. It's quite fantastic actually. Can't wait to see their end results. And if you are working on your own altered book and would like to share, I would love to see photos...via email or tag me on facebook (see links at the top of this page).
wonderful project and in my opinion the greatest thing about it is that it's finished! I'm always very cautious about commiting myself to complex tasks, I don't trust myself that I'll finish (happened before), but because of that I can appreciate your work even more!

Yes...I do believe an altered calendar counts...I love anything altered. We did an altered shoe workshop with the kids at the library and they loved it so much they want to do it again.
