I am loving how this handmade sketchbook is filling up during the season of story. I am no where near full but I am happy to keep going with this one and see it full of journaling goodness.
Almost every page so far has begun with or included a vintage photo of someone or something. The top page here has a 1923 note from a ledger of the time, an antique post-it! The parrot has no rhyme or reason except that he is so cool he had to be included and he ended up on the first page, which I never start with. I don’t know why, but I never begin a journal at the first page, I usually dive in wherever I feel like it and work out until it is full!
I photocopied the reverse side of the photos of Dorothy Jean, so the writing could be included in the page. One of the many things I like about old photos is the writing often found on the back of them.
