i have a custom. i write three good things that happen every day in a little book. it's a way for me to find the good in days that don't always seem to have held any. and a way for me to celebrate the extra good days when life seems full of good things. i add illustrations and doodles along the way. each dated entry is unique in its look and content. last year i decided to make my own book because i have trouble finding journals with unlined paper. i like the books to be small. now that book is almost full and i need another. this time i made a small and very unusual booklet. this one is made of bits of pages from a 1970s reader and a music textbook. i think these papers add yet another layer of happy to the theme. the cover is from an old adult art lessons book that i love and have used as wrapping paper often. i don't have many pages left.
it will be interesting to see how the end look of this book unfolds. i have always used pencil but in this one i will use fine line marker because i will need to write in an even more creative style in order to work my way around the images. i'm looking forward to seeing this little booklet completed. and to making another one before too long.
i wanted the style to be loose so the pages are different sizes and the cover edges are torn instead of neatly sized and trimmed on the paper slicer..
i hope you enjoy seeing my good things book and that you might be inspired to start one, too. it's a nice way to recall the good things in your life and you only need a few minutes a day to keep up with it. they are fun to read through every once in a while, too.
sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
