I was surprised by these beautiful handmade notebooks handmade by mum a few years ago, and had to post them....they are just too beautiful to keep all to myself! I love writing poetry, jotting down ideas, making sketches and these are the perfect little books for doing all of the above! I was quite surprised to find that I have quite a collection of books filled with all of these things. I have journals and art books saved from elementary and high school, and when I was involved in drama and visual arts I've transformed some of the books into collages and scrapbooks keeping old programs, ticket stubs, and pictures of cities we travelled to during competitions. When I was in elementary school, I loved horses and there are pages upon pages filled with sketches of these magnificent creatures. And, of course, my mum's love of quotes has spilled over onto me, and whenever I find one that speaks to me I have to jot it down. These journals are like little time capsules and they are so wonderful to look back on over the years.
