I can't believe January is half over already. I feel like I am getting a late start on the new year. I guess it's because I worked New Year's Day and that whole weekend, and that's usually when I get things organized for the new year. It wasn't until a few days ago that I felt like I had even begun to move in that direction.
Sometimes I think I have too many journals, but then I ignore such nonsense. I have my little stencil journal that shows up here from time to time. Little bits of daily life go there, with only a few words of comment. I have a writing journal that is just that. I don't write in it daily, but usually it is part of my routine when I have a weekend off. I love lazy mornings with a cup of coffee and a journal (with a real fountain pen if it's handy).
But then another blank book came to me unexpectedly as a gift. This is an amazing journal. I have no idea what I will do with it, but it sure makes me think I need to practice making illuminated initials. I might use it for a lettering practice book because it has thin smooth pages. It is just full of possibilities.
here. I think they are awesome! I have been printing off maps of local walking trails and other touristy things in my area. It is turning into one of those projects that is growing by the minute, and I haven't even started it yet!
