Smart Journal volume 1

Smart Journal volume 1

I have been using a few favorite images in this journal, the Smart Journal Volume 1. Some images (and pretty papers) float around in boxes and folders for years never to find the right place. But in a way that is not a good thing. I don’t want to be tired of the images before […]
