Rainy Days are made for book stores... Bookfession

Pintrest find. #392. I almost always take a book with me everywhere I go. It's becoming something of a security blanket.
I saw this last night on pintrest. I remembered what it was like bringing my "Wreck This Journal" with me to places, by Keri Smith. I was very thankful today was a rainy day. On many rainy days, you can find me browsing the library or any book store. I had some mad rainy day money saved, just for books. I went today just to check out the new Keri Smith, "This is Not a Book." Of course, I brought it home! And an entire book set of hers, that also holds, "Wreck This Journal" in the same set.
I'm worse than a kid in a candy store when it comes to creative books. I like to get crafty. I like to document. Most of all I like to take photos of my crafty documents! In 2010 I discovered Keri Smith. Her pages of prompts for ideas were the main subject for some of my 365 photos, helping me make it through the year. This year, I have not one but four of her books now!
My one little word was "FOCUS." I got these books to help me focus on getting crafty and taking photos for my 366. Feel free to join in on my focus, and let it become yours. I will warn you... you can not have ADD creativity when it comes to things like coloring in perfect circles or making ugh ohs out side of the line scribbles with these books. You have to force your self to get creative and enjoy it while you are completing the prompt. I'm so excited. I'm sitting here writing this blog, and my mind is already wondering what book I will choose first!

I dare each of you reading my blogger, to go purchase one of these books. Just one. To get you started to understand what these journals are about, and post photos of your accomplishments.
Price. I say "priceless."
although they are anywhere from 12.95 to 13.95. The box set was $40. But for shameless fun, and a daily photo I'd say it's well worth it!
What are you waiting on? Go get one!
Get ready to get out of your comfort zone and make big mistakes!!!
