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

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

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