I love making journals-- visual ones, because I'm not a journal writer. It's just not my thing, writing about my day or my feelings. I've made my living as a writer for two decades now, so maybe it's because when it comes to myself, I want a break from writing. I love writing stories and articles, and that's enough for me.
Making signatures -- a set of stitched pages -- was easy enough. But sewing several signatures together was a mystery, then binding them. I finally took the time to look it up and it turns out it's easier than I thought.
