I've gone on many times before about my love for black speckled Composition Books. There has been one by my side since I was 11 years old, and I can't live without them.
Every so often I like to pull a page out and dress it up a little, and then I keep all the pulled pages in a folder to look at from time to time. The goal is to put them all together, create a fetching cover and make a nice little creative book out of them for myself. But for now, they rest in a folder waiting patiently in a line with other forlorn projects.
I thought it would be fun to share from time to time my Notebook Scribbles in the hopes that it will give some encouragement- or, if I'm very, very lucky, some inspiration.
They are nothing fancy - just some scrawls and bits of this and that, with words that to me are lovely.
Notebook Scribble for Today:
I do have some exciting news to share.
I am getting my very own out-of-the-house studio/office!
Well, perhaps studio or office is too big a word. It's more like the corner of an office with a desk and a table. But it's all mine. It is in an office building that was previously a beautiful center hall colonial home. It's just lovely, and I am over the moon excited to set up a place to work outside of my home.
I will still have my at-home studio, but this will be a place to work out in the world where there is inspiration and where I will feel a little bit more "me" - away from the laundry and dishwasher and dust.
I think this will be good for me, and it will also give me a place to work undisturbed on a project that I have been tossing about in my heart. One that I hope I can share soon.
We all need to believe that there is a little something special inside of us.
The astonishing light of our own beings.
