One Moleskine closes...Another Opens...

I can't believe it has taken me almost three years to fill this Moleskine. Admittedly 2007 was a missed year but still it is a long time to spend in one journal. Now that I am into better journaling habits I would imagine my next one will be filled in no time at all.



The biggest problem I face now is which shall I choose? My Moleskine watercolour, my Moleskine Japanese fold or my M sketchbook? Too many choices, but, the Watercolour Moleskine is so fine and is tempting me to take it on........

My Moleskine Journal






Keeping up with my daily journal is an exercise which keeps me sane during emotional times.

Often I forget to draw or write and before long I get the feeling there is something important missing. Then suddenly I pick up my journal, open a page, sketch, write or doodle and the balance returns to my life.

Doodling on paper is the most relaxing escape for me.
