The Handmade Book That Started it All
I was looking back over my November posts of past years, and came across this image I had posted of the first journal I made. I made it at a bookbinding class in Ann Arbor in November of 2009.  Since then I have made them in different sizes, and with watercolor paper mixed with various drawing papers. 
A Few of the Other Journals I've Made

 Looking over previous years' posts is like reading old diaries. Some of the things I had forgotten I did, and some of the things I had forgotten I was going to do. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing to be reminded of things we had forgotten we were going to do.  Well, of course, it depends on what those things were, doesn't it?
