I have a weakness for notebooks of all shapes and sizes. Mostly unlined, but sometimes I’ll like the shape enough that I’ll buy something with lines. I love the freedom of being able to write in any direction I want. My favorite is the huge size – 11 by 17 artist sketch books. They just offer so much possibility. I can create an enormous collage on two pages spread out. My heart races thinking about being able to decorate all the space along with the spiral in the middle. Oh yes, I love the spiral. I add a ribbon so that I can keep track of what page I’m on. It helps me keep a sense of order. I’ve added pockets to some of them too. I found some fancy ribbon in San Francisco at this fabulous fabric store. The ribbon actually had a pocket in it. Not a very sturdy pocket, so it wouldn’t hold anything except a few scraps of paper or maybe a stamp. I like to buy colored clasp envelopes and glue them to the inside cover of the journals.
What do you have a weakness for? What can’t you resist, or never seem to get enough of? Set the timer for five minutes, get out a fresh sheet of paper, or open a new word document and let your imagination run wild. See you back here tomorrow to compare notes about what our weak spot.
