Possibility of Paper

i am a self-confessed hoarder of blank books
 I have a sick amount of unused journals and notebooks.* Paper is my weakness...well, one of my biggest. I give blank books as gifts, but obviously not faster than I collect them. I'm no therapist, but I have an inkling that this  love stems from a desire for order and clarity.

one night i just felt like doodling some men's stuff i found in a vintage travel mag
Each pad, no matter size or design, has the potential to be a special organized spot for the busy bits of my life, sketches, and hopeful bursts of literary genius. The different covers remind me of each one's purpose.

My fave blank book makers: ecojot, carrot & stick press, and Chronicle Books.
Good places for cheap blank books: Target, Wal-Mart, HomeGoods and bookshops and art stores in other countries.

* just for the record I also have a whole bunch of blank books that are no longer blank.

I am also a sucker for paper and prints. Although my journal stack is mighty I still reach for a scrap piece of paper to sketch on. What's up with that?
