after the inspiration i found last week in hand-drawn books and blogs, i made a date with myself to go to the local art store this weekend and buy myself two new treats...
it was an exhilarating + fun trip!
alas, now i must confess:
i have tried the pen (it's wonderful) but the empty cahiers are sitting on my desk, staring longingly at me and waiting patiently for me to begin.
the truth is that i'm a little stuck. putting the first thing into a new journal has always been slightly daunting to me. i often find that starting is the most difficult part. once i get going, momentum carries me. but that first blank page...
i think i need to get out of my head, dive back into the sources that inspired me, and get going with my lovely new books.
do you ever get stuck when starting a brand new journal?
