I really liked make this third book. I found the cards different and interesting looking around the rooms of my house. In the following I cut following the golden proportions and put them together using the technique of stab-binding.
Here is my paper notebook made with cards of different thickness and different texture. There are old menu cards of a pizzeria, cardboard cut out of a fashion catalog, Indian writing paper, crepe paper, plain paper into squares and card drawing.
I like to discover within myself invent something new every time, I like to surprise me and find new possibilities.

I love to write and draw on simple notebooks, sometimes even recycled.
I like to write and draw simultaneously on cards of various types, paste images and little things on the sheets, have fun. It ‘a relaxing activity and helps me open my mind.
I have many books of “pages” in the morning that are already full because it has been for more than 5 years that I write every day.
I like to inspire various images and ideas that I find many of Pinterest
In my room I look around. I see and I think the things that are within, to those who are outside .
But as there are containers in a room?
Boxes and little boxes , cases and bags, cosmetic bag and backpacks …
But also frames that can contain pictures, colors, memories …
like this … for almost 20 years now hanging over the wall of the head of our bed !
It’s an image of Flea Market at Anjuna Beach, Goa (India):
that’s where I was born the love between me and my partner … when and where we first met …
Then I think of the old tin cans that have accompanied me in my life … some still contain almost all of my old ink dried or evaporated … contain postcards and other small objects found … beads, shells , stones , dry leaves …
Then there are the bags that have traveled through time with me or who are only here because I have inherited from my mom and I liked it : when the touch tell me stories!
There are also notebooks, the old and yellowed by time, contain notes, sketches , poems and new ones yet to begin , the bags made of hand-knitted or small soft blue leather .
Every little object in the room takes on a meaning with time .
Even the packaging of the flask still be used and perhaps usher in the next trip and silver frame new still in the box . Acquire a meaning when we insert a special photo , real … printed on paper … which in recent times is becoming less .
