Inside my Diary

Inside my Diary

When time allows I am always cutting and pasting, especially in my diary, probably because it’s the notebook that most often is close to me.

Owl journal revisited: I painted it pink!

Do you remember the leather journal my mother bought for me in Lithuania? I have been so into the moleskine brand that I haven’t used this one yet. It’s been resting in the notebook bin for a few months. Then at Easter I finally decided to give the blank pages a try. I’m about to […]
