Speaking of Writing…

Why not have a cool place to put it all? I love and collect notebooks of any kind, notebooks meaning paper bound with a coil. They can be sketch books or journals or notepads. I have some I’ve never used, and they are a constant inspiration for me and someday I hope to be doing more of my own. I’d still like to get my hands on one of these though. I found this local artist through another artist’s website. Called Touch the Sky, Karen Saro Troeger creates these custom journals and notebooks using marbeled papers, Japanese and Italian papers, or her own hand painted paste papers. I lke the hand painted ones the best, but she also has a collection of leather jounral designs that are handsewn the historical linestich style, are accented with natural mineral and stone beads, and contain 140 recycled sheets of paper. There are so many designs to choose from, and her hand painted journals are very affordable at only $16 apiece. She also makes window books and unique photo books  that fold in all sorts of funky ways as well as hand weaved and tin jewelery.
