  1. Hi Libby as long as you can carry around what ever you choose it should be fine – I encourage people to look at how they will use something and select something that fits with their life style.
    Looking forward to meeting in the forum.

  2. Hi Susan, I am enrolled the studio journal workshop beginning Feb 24. I use a regular planner size 8.5X5.5 inches. I think the international equivelant is A5, fairly close. Anyway it is in a binder form. I keep all my stuff this size. So would it work to have my studio journal in a loose leaf form? I don’t like sketchbooks with wire binding because they always fall apart, And this would also give me the opportunity to pick and choose paper weight. Thanks ahead of time for your feedback. I’m looking forward to the class.
