Finally, a journal!

I had to do a lot of looking but I found it, the perfect journal!
It's from this awesome etsy seller that recycles old, unloved books and things into new journals to love. Those of you that know me, know this one was custom made for me long before I found it :-) It was even called a "Skinny Grande".

After moving (under protest) to suburbia and the land of 4x4's and extended cab trucks, I began my caffeine withdrawls. As close as you can get to real espresso is Starbucks. So, I live there. I know where every one is in a 15 mile radius. Let me tell you, seriously, there are less than half in that radius than there is in 15 square blocks downtown.
Now I have a place to write down all those ideas, sketches, tips, phone numbers, event dates, websites to check out... you get the idea.
You MUST run to look at this awesome etsy shop:
This seller, Cindy, is one of the sweetest, most gracious sellers I've had the pleasure to work with on etsy. She packaged my journal so wonderfully and sent it out so quickly. It was a much higher quality than I could have ever imagined and I love it. Thank you Cindy!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Funny you should mention caffeine withdrawal - I am always trying to cut down on the amount of coffee I drink & finally, FINALLY! We get a Starbucks built nearby. Well, not really nearby - 20 minutes away.... but that's as close as I can hope for in the boonies I guess.

That is a cool journal! I'm more of a Mt. Dew junkie in the morning to get my caffiene. However, I live in a small town and there's actually a Starbucks here.

MMMMM... Starbucks... I can't imaging how addicted I'd look sitting in my local Starbucks writing in my Starbuck journal! LOL

Beautiful journals. I am so impressed with all the ways Etsians create art from old items.

Hang in there w/Starbucks. Wish you had a little indie cafe to curl up in. But in a storm. . .
