Capturing life's momentary events


I used to think...

I used to think that journals should only have writing in them. No pictures or drawings should be allowed. But How To Make A Journal Of Your Life proved me wrong.

Here's a great little book all about cool ideas for recording not just your thoughts but your observations. I used to think that only a written journal would be taken seriously. But who says it's all serious? Why not be creative and draw a little?

Now if you think you're not a good artist, think again. Price confesses he wasn't either. "Learn by doing" is his mantra. And even though his sketches are lopsided, out-of-scale, and Dr. Seuss-like, they are really very cool.

Mix it up a little and glue some pictures in. Save that special ticket and paste it in a page where your write about a move you saw. Write your story around the drawings to add that human, almost whimsical touch.

I know it all sounds wimpy, but you've got to check it out for yourself.

Just to show that you can take a hand printed book seriously, look at Everyday Matters by Danny Gregory. Click on "search inside this book" on both links above (they appear just under the picture of the book). I guarantee you'll be hooked.
