I got my 5x8.5 Black Moleskine two days ago for the Sketchbook Project ( http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject ).

Eventhough I am pretty excited about the possibilities of this little book, I have only barely started to decorate the inside cover. There is something daunting about a blank book. Even more daunting is knowing the book won't go on my shelf when it's full but will go away and travel around and be thumbed through by what i imagine will be a lot of other people. People i don't know. People I will never meet. It is at once exhilarating and terrifying.

I am hoping to put some of the non-jewelry supplies i have been accumulating over the years to use in this project and i plan to spend tonight sifting through those things while i wait for my kiln to get up to temperature.

I would devote the night to just the sketchbook but it's Autumn finally and finally i can run my kiln without feeling like i am dying.

There is a small window between too hot to breathe and too cold to maintain dexterity and it is happening right now.
