Sketchbooks and Journals

:: a pile to treasure ::
A personal pile of mine.
 A stack of stories in my studio. 
A collection of sorts... some handmade, hand-bound, altered, and recycled.
 Honestly, these art journals and sketchbooks are hard to pack away...
 They have become a part of me, a part of my studio, a part of my "why".
You know... those days when your inner critic tells you, 
"why do you bother making art anyways ?" 
This is when, I can open anyone of these books up and be reminded...
and fall in love all over again! 
I think these can wait, just a little awhile longer, 
before I pack them away to our new place.

Our journals are such a part of us, don't you think ?
