I adore paper. I love the feel of it and the smell of it. Handmade or manufactured, paper in all its forms spells infinite magic.  It can be a book, a notepad, a sculpture.  It can be a print or a collage, labels or  craft paper, train tickets, paint sample strips, bookmarks or cardboard; even scrapbook  and school rough book paper give me the same emotions. Not loo paper, mind you, even if it does have a crossword printed on it or an insipid ‘pretty’ pattern.

If the paper is already marked in some form, whether with words or pictures or both, it’s the pleasure of looking and reading.  If the paper is blank, it’s the joy of creating something special.  Sadly, my days of scissors and paste are long since over (that pesky disability again) or I would be creating marvels in papier-mâché, or so I like to think. The last time I mentioned this, it was to write about the talented artists who craft everything from greeting cards to dolls houses. I designed a card and fully intended to cut it out and stick it together.  I lie. I was going to get Mr FND to do all the physical work.  Ultimately, it went by the wayside and became a digitally designed image only because I broke my hip. You can see it here.

In any event, Zazzle has just introduced what they call pocket journals.  The word ‘journal’ is a misnomer as I doubt they would serve as a repository for much scribbling.
