I recently realized that I need prompts to do any kind of "diary-esque" writing. When I stumbled upon the 30 day drawing challenge: http://blog.allisonlehman.com/2011/04/30-day-drawing-challenge/, the only way I know I would do it was if it was in a sketchbook/diary format.

So I made these little booklets with the daily prompts on each page, I made about five and plan to give away four as gifts and keep one for myself Smiley

I'm pretty excited b/c the books were made entirely from recycled materials (except the glue and ink to print the prompts).

 Hope you like them Smiley

this way the cover for both the front and back

Really nice! It seems like a fun challenge, especially to do with friends.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

I love how you have improved those sketchbooks.  What a great idea.  It would probably help someone with "writer's block" too.
