I'd heard that Moleskins were the cream of the crop when it came to notebooks, so I picked one up on clearance a couple of years ago. What I didn't know when I bought it was that it was a calendar, not a blank notebook.
Then I thought, I can work with that- I'll turn it into a gluebook. So, on July 2 2013, I started gluing. I feel like I should point out that on the very first page, I broke with the definition of a "true" gluebook, which should be made only with glued images- no writing, highlighting or doodles.
I'm thinking I could also benefit from a lettering class...
Other than adding washi tape to some pages, I pretty much stuck with just scissors and glue when working in the book.
(The earring in the upper left corner isn't attached, it's just to hold the page down.)
Several months ago, the gluebook disappeared. It wasn't in any of the usual places I put my projects- which can be just about anywhere in the house except the kitchen.
I looked in drawers, pulled books out from bookshelves, looked under the bed- I thought it was gone, probably tossed out with a stack of papers.
Last week, in my ongoing (and slow) attempt to organize my craft room, I opened up a little suitcase that had a tag that said "Images" and inside was my Moleskin, along with lots of images, a pair of scissors and gluestick. It looked like my Moleskin was taking a vacation, or I had planned to take it on a vacation.
I was happy to find it, and happy to start gluing again.
