Painting clay 06/25/2008

Running out of things to do?
Make a trip to a local pottery store.
There will probably be a three to six dollar supply fee, and then you pick your clay and paint! It gives you something to do for the day, and you can see your money actually turn into something creative.

Moleskines! 06/22/2008

I LOVE these notebooks. They're simple, cheap and all you need to take notes. Note to college students: these notebooks are a must have. I prefer the plain cahier. ALSO...if you are traveling, they have notebooks with maps and notes for specific destinations. It's basically like a travel journal.

What is Moleskine? ( mol-a-skeen'-a)
MOLESKINE is the legendary notebook that has held the inspirations and ideas of everyone from Van Gogh, Picasso and Hemingway to famed author, Bruce Chatwin. Artists, authors, and geniuses of all variety have long appreciated the simplicity and superior functionality of these notebooks.

Originally these books were produced by small French bookbinders who supplied the Parisian stationery shops frequented by the international avant-garde. However, In 1986, the last manufacturer of Moleskine, a family operation in Tours, closed and Moleskines were gone – but not forgotten. As a result of their previous popularity and demand, they did return. In 1998, a small Milanese publisher brought these books back for writers, artists, travelers and all free-thinkers around the globe.
