Books ARE fun

Something about me that most do not know.. I collect blank books. I OBSESSIVLY collect blank journals/ sketch books. I love them. They are inspiration waiting to happen...

Thing is, I doodle or write on one or two pages, then shelf them. That has to say something.. Therapist?

Last night, I decided to starbucks card mosaic the cover of one of the blank books. It turned out awesome! Here you go:
