Went to the Downtown Street Fair with Mom last night. It was hot and humid, but enjoyable. Bought a few fun things for myself, including a really neat recycled, hand-bound journal by Couple of Artists. They don’t have a website, but Dan & Alyssa Sharbono can be reached at email@example.com.
They take old book hardcovers (typically children’s books or school books), make a front and a back, fill it with a hodgepodge of blank pages, then sew it up! It is really very cool and just the perfect piece I was searching for to get all of my lists, notes, and insights down on paper. I picked a cover with a little redheaded girl on the front. The only text still visible from the title of the original book is, “her mind,” which I thought perfectly described what this book will soon entomb!
