So...one of my favorite things is my Moleskine journal. I used to use a Franklin Planner, but honestly, after taking that class and feeling like I'd found a new religion, on later examination, I found I used just about 5% of any given page of my planner. Then one day, I happened on Neil Gaiman's blog to read about Moleskine notebooks. Find the right obsessive and they'll tell you that it was used in Ancient Macedonia in place of parchment. (kidding). There are a lot of famous people who have used Moleskine notebooks (supposedly Hemingway and Fitzgerald among them). That was good enough. I bought into it, got one and have loved it ever since. Next time you see me, ask and I'll show you mine. And yes, I've already ordered my 2009 book.
Well, today I found a link to a Flicker picture site of someone who has done some amazing things with her Moleskine. If you don't dig on fantasy, or art, you can skip this. If you do to any degree, click here
. If the author (who used to be the now defunct Nine Wave Designs Artist) were to publish that lovely volume, I'd buy it. In a second. And I'd love Molekines all the more for it.
By the way (it doesn't cost much, the way. Moleskines tend to be in mid $20 range), here is a discussion
about Moleskines and here is a link to one of Gaiman's comments
about his Moleskines, search for it... And here
is Moleskine's webpage. No, I don't make a dime off it if you buy. No vested interest.
