In one of my art groups Kate has taught us how to make flip journals. I already knew how, because Kate and I have both been with the art group a long time and I’ve seen her teach this a couple of times, just like she’s seen me teach eraser carving several times. Because I knew what I was doing, I decided to make a small journal, 4″x5″ instead of the 5.5″x8.5″ that Kate makes them. Kate had made us great kits to make the journal, so I got one of those and I’ll do something with it later. I thought the small journal was a great idea, so I decorated it with hand carved rubber stamps and named it Great Ideas. Now, of course, I have no great ideas to put in the journal. Maybe I should have named it Mediocre Ideas.
