I just thought I'd write a short introduction so you all know a bit more about me.
I'm 22 and I live in the UK, and work at Siemens in the Finance Department. I have always been interested in art, and studied the subject back at school, but I never took it any further or into a career, for fear that it would spoil my enjoyment of it.... I have always dreamt of doing something more creative as a job though.
I hadn't even heard of Moleskines before I stepped into Waterstones, our national bookstore chain, where I snapped up my very first soft cover plain notebook to scribble in. As soon as I got home, opened up my first Moly and read the history of the Moleskine, I knew I was onto something... Two months later, I've got about 6 Moleskines - a mix of large, pocket, plain, lined and I can't wait to fill them up and buy more. I thought I'd do a little search on Flickr and see if anyone else thought as highly of their Moleskines as I did of mine, and I was shocked to find so many people did! I find it fascinating to see what other people draw and write in their little black books, as well as people asking questions like "where do you write in yours?" and "what do you use to write in it?", questions I've always wondered but felt too silly to ask!
I've literally just ordered my Japanese book from Amazon, so I'll be ready to rock and roll as soon as it arrives!! :) I'm trying to think of a theme to put into my book at the moment, and found some fantastic ideas on Flickr groups. I've got a while for my Moly to arrive, so will keep thinking until then. Can't wait to put pen to paper, wrap up the book and send it off to the next person, and see what comes back.
Have you all done a Moleskine exchange before? Did you enjoy it? How did you start off your Moleskine book sign pages?
Lots of love,
