I just discovered the world of Midori journals and what they call “fauxdori” journals which are Midori-type journals you make yourself. They are expensive, being made of leather, so I was trying to figure out how to do one in fabric and interface it enough to be like a leather cover.
Mostly, it was making inserts for it that appealed to me: sewing little folders and booklets and making pocket folders and such, maybe using art paper for a journal insert.
I don’t have the money or energy for this but I keep learning and looking. Another thing I didn’t know about last week and then the world opened up into this chasm of delight and creativity. Amazing what people do.
Here is what cards have to say about this new interest.

Yeah, the old scorpion of desire biting you in the leg sort of thing.
Desire is a slippery slope of browsing and yearning for things you don’t have. He could be happy sunning on a rock, but he’s grasping at ideas, trying to pull more and more into his life, spending money and hankering for things that are always just out of reach.
He’s getting cranky, he might bite if you come closer.
