One comment on “Episode 84: One Stapled Book at a Time

  1. Thanks Amy for another great podcast.
    I am happy to hear you are all having such fun with the birds! I envy you as we can no longer feed the wild birds here due to the feral cats in the neighborhood who were using our feeders and eating the birds when they came to feed. The boys were traumatized to see a cat eating one of the birds!
    Regarding binding our own blank journals I agree that if we keep changing media and the journal has one kind of paper then it won’t work. I don’t even know if mixing paper types in one binding would help becuase then we’d not have a pure freedom to create what we wanted and would end up again with blank pages or feeling forced to use certain materials that work best on that paper if we wanted to work on just one book at a time.
    No perfect solution, I guess.
    Now I’m thinking perhaps the best is to have one journal of one paper and then keep working on multiple journals at once rather than using them in a more pure chronological manner organized by date.
    Good for you for buying the new pen! Enjoy it!
