I thought that too, but i found if i just toss it in my backpack (I'm a college student) and carry it around with me, there's a lot of small chunks of time for me to sit down and write a sentence or two. So my entries end up looking like a collection of a ton of the random thoughts/things that happened during the day.  I kinda think it actually is a better representations of me! haha

It takes a little time, the right tools, and a good plan, but it's certainly not hard.  I would say the most challenging part is attaching the back cover properly with the coptic stitch.

I made this journal yesterday to replace my Winter Journal when the time comes http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=214063.0

It is made with the Coptic Binding Stich, using a curved needle and waxed cord.  I created the lines and icons on the pages in a program called freehand mx and printed them on computer paper. I picked up the fabric from the remnants bin at my local walmart and the inner cover paper is cut out from a scrapbooking supplies book. I stitched it with 8 signatures (sections) of 6 sheets paper each, this helped to keep the spine thin as compared to the rest of the pages.

Here is a journal I made a while back and have been using.  It is made with the Coptic Binding Stich, using a curved needle and waxed cord.  I created the lines and icons on the pages in a program called freehand mx and printed them on computer paper. I picked up the fabric from the remnants bin at my local walmart and the inner cover paper is cut out from a scrapbooking supplies book.  I stitched it with 12 signatures (sections) of 4 sheets paper each, but this caused the spine to be very thick as compared to the pages. I changed this in future designs.
