Despite my love for my gold kikki.K, I’m simply too much of a spontaneous hermit to get much use out of planner, hence my silence and lack of planner-related posts for the past weeks. I’d been dedicating significant brainpower to figuring out how I could still use this gorgeous, amazing binder without actually printing out planner inserts and trying to keep track of my life that way. So I decided to turn the kikki.K into a ring-bound art journal. I loved the single-ring art journal I had earlier this year, and it seemed natural to upgrade, so to speak. In order to protect the hardware, leather and fabric of this beautiful planner, I take each page out when I work in it, unless it’s a simple sketch or paint-less preliminary design. :)
This system of having an art journal and an “everything journal”—wherein I keep daily rants, ephemera from life, notes, to-dos, plans, lists, dreams, ideas, fiction, literally everything—seems to be working very well for me. And of course, I have tons of sketchbooks as well. :P In addition to these, I also have a large plain Moleskine with a soft cover in which I paste all my beautiful received mail.
Earl Sweatshirt & Co. turned up for soundcheck yesterday and hung out with our photographer at House of Vans Boston in the green room during a bit of down time. His set last night was definitely a blast. Look out for those photos later today.
