About: Susan is an artist, educator, and the author of Handmade Books For A Healthy Planet. She shares her love of making books, her art, and celebrations of the seasons at susangaylord.com.

I have always loved the idea of faithfully keeping a journal with something written or drawn for each day of the year. In practice it has never worked. I decided that I might have a chance if I only had to write one word a day and that it was important to keep it small and simple so I wouldn't be tempted to start more elaborately and then quit because I couldn't live up to the expectation. I designed a series of small books, one for each month, that go in a box made from a cereal box.

    This is lovely. I would like to read one of the completed books.   Could you post some more photos of the project?
