I have completed three handmade books of which are blank, so you can fill them with whatever you want. They are for sale on my etsy store, http://www.etsy.com/shop/JohannaFalzone

I’m really proud of these books, I think they are my best work yet in terms of craft and I am so happy to be able to sell them and finally allow other s to enjoy handmade books. I’ve had a lot of requests to start making them for people to buy, so here they are! There will be more to come!

This observation is an excerpt going in my observation journal.

Everyday when I sit in the student center I see many different people walk by, sit down, interact with friends etc. But what really sticks out to me are the people who are constantly alone, they sit at the couches and quietly work or read their assignments, they are polite to other students, sometimes engage in small conversation with the people around them, but they mainly keep to themselves. I tend to feel sorry for these people because I have no idea if they have friends because I always see them alone. I hope that they do have friends and that I just don’t see them when said people are alone in the student center. I hate knowing that there are lonely people out there, I myself don’t like being completely alone. Being isolated from friendships causes self-esteem problems, trust issues etc. and I don’t want that for myself or other people. I can only hope that these people I think are alone are not really alone.

So I have finished making my journal which will be filled in by December, that is my goal. The book is made with 90lb drawing paper in a folio style, with acid free paper-backed light beige book cloth. The covering of the book is an embossed suede type of fabric stitched with cream and gold-yellow thread, a deep brown metallic robe ribbon ties the journal together.

The idea for this journal is for me to be able to write down my observations, I want to draw an object, plant, person etc. and describe what I have observed, so the title I have given the journal is “Observations”. I think its like a transcendental Emerson/Thoreau type of exercise.

Enjoy this photo I don’t think I ever posted from my trip to Seattle last year.

So for the past couple weeks I have been trying to finish my 2011/2012 art journal, so I can get ready to start the 2012/2013 one. It’s really fun putting these together every year, but rarely do I ever show them to people, so I have posted some poor quality photos of the most recent journal. This past Tuesday during one of the final days of Tropical Storm Debby I managed to get this years new journal and a haircut. I also ordered new stickers for the cover that will accompany my newly re-discovered Obama Celebration of the 2008 election win sticker buried beneath piles of collected magazine scraps. Once I finish the current journal and receive the new stickers in the mail I will reveal the cover of the new 2012/2013 art journal.

One day when I have power and money like a dirty politician I would like to publish these because by then all of the magazine clipped photos/stickers/ads etc. will not prevent me with their copyright laws; although I think because they are altered and scrapped I am covered under the Creative Commons, but I am not entirely sure and do not want to be sued therefore being filthy rich will help settle disputes out of court.

EDIT: Forgot to tell everyone I have an official Facebook page now! And my website I have been promising for like a year now is finished and I will be purchasing a domain, will post the link soon!!! 😀
