I loved the idea of Smash Books, but I already carry a 6"x8" notebook where I make notes to myself, to-do lists, stuff I see or read, want to look up. You get the idea. One day I realized that if I just printed one or two of my photos really small I could glue them into that same notebook and then glue in whatever I had that I wanted to remember. I wrote about it here on my blog (An Easy Idea for Art Journaling (stARTing over)
) The point was- I didn't need to run out and get all sorts of special embellishments and stuff. And it was so easy, just a glue stick. If anyone is interested I will scan some pages and post them. They look as good- if not better- than a purchased book, and 95% cheaper. I think you can tell how proud I am!
