Hobonichi Love

I have discovered the beauty that is

Hobonichi Techo

. So simple but incredibly inspiring. I'm hoping to use this as a life/art journal to give a little boost to my creativity which seems to have been zapped lately. I'll be sharing some of my layouts when I feel they are not crappy. Here is a sneak peek at what I am doing.

I love writing in columns where the layout takes on the look of a magazine (or bible if you are mostly just journaling). This is the Hobonichi Cousin which is A5 size.

If you want to see more, I am loving this video from the creators of Hobonichi.

I have watched this video so many times.  I so wish I could draw like some of the examples they feature.

Why Not Me?

Years ago, I decided I wanted to do something. I had a passion for it and I really wanted to see that passion grow. In the hustle and bustle of life, the passion remained but the confidence to think I could do it waned. I succumbed to doubt and started to believe I couldn't do it and I could never figure out how.

But then came the Internet and Google and YouTube and I am seeing what so many others have done with so little. I am seeing others do what I have wanted to do. The barrier for entry has decreased and I have no reason not to get moving.

The plan is in motion and so am I.
