The Rhodia Journal Swap #1

“Reading, conversation, environment, culture, heroes, mentors, nature – all are lottery tickets for creativity. Scratch away at them and you’ll find out how big a prize you’ve won.”
Twyla Tharp

The Rhodia webbie has creamy white dotted paper and a soft orange leatherette cover.

There are 12 Rhodia webbie journals traveling around the states. Twelve folks diligently filling pages with all sorts of creative fodder. So I am starting with a blank journal this month; I'll fill about 7 pages and mail it off to the next person. Another participant will mail me the journal they start. So my JOURNAL #1 starts here. There's a tumblr blog for the Rhodia Swap if you want to follow the journal pages posted by the participants.
