Greetings all....I am new to flickr and new to this group. I discovered the mighty moleskin a few years ago and there's no going back. Pen and gouache are favorites to slap between the pages. I don't have a lot of pictures to share yet but I look forwrd to perusing the photos of what you have all done.

I was searching to quick sketch questions and stumbled onto the Quick Sketch Tutorials thread. Since I've had a fetisch for nice notebooks, and moleskins in particular, for a while I thought it'd make sense to join this group.

My name is Jonas and I live in Denmark. I work as a programmer to scrounge up money for climbing trips around the world. When I am not working or climbing I run, draw, read, sleep, cook, and eat.

Hello all. I'm new to Flickr and relatively new to Moleskine (I'm on my second.) My first was the first journal I kept for a whole year. I run hot & cold with my "photography" and my journal keeping. I seem to be in a warm spell with both right now. Looks like a great group here.

PMgD says:

I just bought my first Moleskine. One in a row of many to come, I'm sure of that. I've had many sketchbooks before but I forgot about them after a couple of pages or just lost the appetite to sketch. Now with my Moleskine, it's somehow different. Is asks me gently to sketch in it and if I ignore it it yells at me... SKETCH ME!
Many good ideas (or at least I think so) found their basics in my Moleskine... Great to find a group on this beloved Flickr site that shares that love for a simple piece of paper (of the highes quality ofcourse)

hi i'm josh

i'm a graphic design senior at WMU. interested in all forms of graphic design, typography, all kinds of music, and i love snow. hopefully soon it will start snowing here and stick around. makes it feel more like x-mas.

i'm an avid sketcher and always have ideas to write down but i never have a notebook handy because they're usually too cumbersome to carry around. being a guy, all i have usually is like a back pocket to carry something, no purses or bags to carry stuff. i think the moleskine may be the perfect size to carry so that i can start getting more ideas down on paper.

hopefully i can get my icon changed once i have time to fix photoshop on my ibook.

I'm Tina. I am a writer living in Newfoundland and Labrador on the east coast of Canada. I have lusted after a moleskine for a long time and bought one for the first time today. You know all those discussions about how intimidating the blank moleskine can be. I haven't even taken mine out of the bag yet. It is sitting there and I am waiting for the "right" time to take it out and open it. How silly is that?

Hi there! I'm Crystal and adore both my moleskine journals. One was a gift from a pal and is a blank paged one. The other the sketchbook type that I doodle craziness in.

I'm from Toronto, Ontario and just think sharing scans from my journals with my friends is alot of fun.

Writting something special in them is great and I find I use it more for stray thoughts than anything.

redbricktudor says:

An educator by profession, I am a longtime keeper of journals. In the past decade I started carrying Molekine notebooks on long trips because I knew they would withstand the wear and tear of switching from pocket to bookbag to suitcase back to pocket and even airplane dinner tray. The ability to pull a Moleskine out of a jacket pocket and jot down reflections during a retreat or conference has given those moments a enduring record.

hiii! my name is sarah, i'm new to flickr (although lurk, hard!) and somewhat new to moleskines. i first heard of them around last christmas, when my boyfriend set out in our city to find a moleskine to buy for a friend of ours. lucky friend!

i don't own a moleskine but i can see the quality in them. therefore, there's about 5 different ones on my christmas list. ;) haha. i think they're very cute, and classy looking. i have a large dollar-store journal i use for a writing class but i don't really like it, it's very bulky and it looks very unprofessional. i look forward to receiving one of these from my parents in about a month's time and filling it up with hopes and dreams! hehe

I just bought recently my first set of moleskines. I can't draw well, actually, but i intend to improve and this sketchbook sure will help.

I hope to get inspiration and encouragement in this community, as soon as i can start posting drawings.

Hello all! I'm Heidi and I was made aware of these fine little books years ago when a friend gave me "The Songlines" to read. Bruce Chadwick mentioned picking up a bunch of these books to take on his next journey. A couple of years later I came across them in a beautiful old stationary store while looking for a pump for my fountain pen (yes I love fountain pens!) and since then have a stack of them in my room. Haven't done much with them lately, but love them just the same.......
perhaps you will inspire me!

Hi everybody! I just started using these radical notebooks in the analogification of my Getting Things Done workflow. The Palm PDA I used before is now relegated to keeping only my address book and calendar. All my lists--next actions, projects, goals, wishlists are now in a pocket-sized notebook that is always with me. I also keep a a sketch book in my satchel for doodles, and a notebook for other ruminations. My Moleskines will be the only things to survive the rabid depaperification of my life.

I'm a 20-something research scientist/grad student in New Orleans, LA, US.

Hi everyone, I'm Hazel, I'm in the management side of independent theatre in London and also a contributor / editor of www.londonist.com.

I've been aware of Moleskines for a long time, but never actually used one myself until I got married this summer. My husband is crazy about Moleskines and I thought it was time to stop using the back of envelopes for all my notes (weddings require a lot of notes...) so we asked for Moleskines on our wedding list and got several each.

Then the City Notebooks were released and my conversion to proper ink pens and Moleskine notebooks was complete. And that's how I ended up here, completely and utterly hooked on Moleskines.

Hi all, I'm Mike. I work in IT full time and I'm part-time writer. I always carry a notebook with me for jotting down stray ideas, notes, dialog, etc. When a friend -- also a writer -- showed me his moleskine cahiers I got interested. I looked them up online, bought a pocket-sized sketchbook, and I have been hooked ever since. That was earlier this year and now I'm on my second, this time a standard lined notebook. Their durability is a huge plus for me. I'm looking forward to buying a Chicago city notebook soon.

I have a very active group of books where you can post your photos of anything related to books. I think that Moleskine is a perfect exemple of something related to them.

looking notebook from some random person's blog, and it
displayed the letter MOLESKINE... so i searched around, and
the next thing i know i have found my favourite notebook
kind.

now i currently own a pocket sized music book, it's quite
helpful.
i am a music student, and i do all my study of harmony,
melody writing, analysis on this thing!

Hello

I am pleased to join this group dedicated to the most excellent writing tool ever invented (except for the linguistic mind upgrade about 40k years ago and the invention of the printing press).

I am a scientist, writer and photographer living and working in Toronto Canada. I own the pocket sized classic, and the large soft day planner.

Once, in 2004, my moleskine, together with my briefcase, Palm pilot and Leica was stolen. The rest were replaceable. The moleskine was not. I felt as if thoughts had been plucked from my head without my asking.

I suppose that I could use any old notebook, and cheaper ones at that. But there is an inefffable quality about the Moleskine that makes one feel that all thoughts recorded there in somehow deserve better treatment than just any old scribblings....

I can't see a reson to have a Palm pilot or similar device when one has a Molie!

I've been using moleskines since early 2002 but my desire for such a notebook can be traced back to 1980 watching Harrison Ford scribble in something similar in 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark'.

I use them mainly for taking bible notes and so far have only written in pencil. I'm finally ready to start writing in ink and am currently researching the most suitable pen. I've just bought a Pilot Lettering Pen for Calligraphy which looks promising despite being cheap.

I'm the editor of devzone.zend.com. I'm also an amateur photographer and in my spare time, I'm a programmer.

My Moleskine travels with me to programmer conferences and when I go out shooting. Mostly it's full of scribbled notes, ideas and doodles of the letter K. (Wife 1.23's first initial)

I live in Nashville TN.

Hi! I'm Eyra. When I found this group I couldn't belive that my favorite notebook had a space in flickr. I love Moleskine like all the members in here. I love photography, and my moleskine is the subject of many pictures that I had taken.
I'm glad to be here.

Hi! I'm Steve from Taipei, sorry if my English isn't perfect. I've recently "switched" to moleskines last November, and I find myself buying way more than just a simple notebook. I now carry it around everyday, and scribble down anything that just comes into my mind or anything worth putting down, and I love it so much that I even wrote a song for it called "little black book", which very luckily got noticed by moleskinerie the blog and featured it on the front page. Later on, the retail company in Hong Kong heard it, and awarded me a free mole for a new years present. I have to say that these were the best new years gift for me ever. I want to say thank you to Moleskinerie again, and to those who heard the song. Btw, I'm sort of a 22 yr old English teacher, but I'm greatly interested in all sorts of art. I've done indie filmaking, song writing, graphic design, graffiti street art and all sorts of related stuff. It's a long story, but in short I come from a environment lack of creativity, so I often find myself lonely in the design and art area. Whatever, it has been a great pleasure to see all of your work here on flickr. It has given me a reason to buy a decent notebook and tons of inspiration. Happy to find this place, Moles rock!

Muis Muizenis says:

Hi,

My name is Muis (Mouse). Moles bumped in to my life a few years ago, as they started staring at me on my visits to bookstores... After a few years of staring and not buying any, something strange happened last December.

Choosing between 2 fantastic job opportunities, one of the companies sent me a Christmas present. It was a Moleskine blanc notebook. It was a small thing, but it was THIS particular thing that made me go for this smaller company. I still feel great about my choice! This was the perfect sign (normally, I don't believe in signs :-)

Hello, I'm Sarah from London and usually have a sketchbook of some sort (whether it's a Moleskine notebook, a handfull of bits of paper or a beermat) tucked in a pocket. This was something that began when I gave up smoking and needed a substitute and it turned out to be a much healthier addiction. I'm enjoying seeing everybody else's sketches and it's great to see that I'm not the only one that does this...

RED Letter Days says:

Hi All,

I fell for the Molie several years ago. I have had one in my pocket or bag ever since. I'm not artistic at all, so I use mine to take notes, jot down thoughts, and occasionally glue in pictures, etc. When travelling I always make sure I have three items: my passport, my pocket size lined notebook and the memo pockets (perfect for storing receipts, tickets, cards, etc.).

I love to see what the rest of you are doing with your notebooks. And while I lack the talent some of you display, I certainly appreciate all the inspiration I have found in this group.

hi everyone - i appreciate all of you sharing your moleskins. i'm fascinated by how my very utilitarian book (pages used to communicate with deaf brother-in-law, ancestry info, sketches of brain-farts, sketches of windows, doors, pieces of papers, and the coupon or three...) compares to yours : ) I use the small ones. Feel neked without it!

Hello everyone. Sorry but I didn't see this discuss before.. I'm from Italy and I'm quite new to this group, but not new to Moleskine. I always use the pocket weekly notebook and for this 2007 I bought the RED one... (never seen before). Am I the only one? Do you think I offend its black dress?

Eudaemonian says:

Oh, I added this group when I independently bought 3 large notebooks for school in summer 2006 and posted my notes up for fun (I was taking some interesting classes). Then I discovered slowly that people really dig these particular notebooks, and also that they love to see my notes in biology on weird stuff like fungus. The notebooks held up nicely last semester, so this semester I bought a ton of moleskine stuff & so far I like that they're lighter in weight than the normal school notebooks. My Italian 101 notebook is this teeny grid one, it's so handy! I'm using the plain reporter style ones for lab classes.

But I don't draw or sketch a lot, nor do I need to write a whole bunch (I figure stuff out in my head). So I don't have a real journal that I'm obligated to. I just finished a large travel trip & fell in love while on it, so I'm writing lots about that, but beyond that... most journal stuff = photos + notes + receipts + random thoughts.

That's me, so hi everyone!

Hey all - I am a big fan of the skine as well. I got my first one (I am ashamed to admit it) at the Crystal Cathedral in LA. We were just visiting it as a touristy stop, but I saw a pocket sketchbook Moleskine and my friend who I was with bought it for me. That was 9.15.03 and I've been using them ever since.

I also love flickr and have been here pretty much since it started I think.

I keep a blog at gathering in light and have found both flickr and my Moleskine to be a big asset to the blogosphere.

I am now a PhD student in theology and live in LA.

hello,
i have just recently discovered moleskines. i had seen this group before and knew what they were but didn't have much interest until i held one. i work at a cafe inside of a bookstore and am tempted by a rather large quantity of them on a daily basis. i have four and am currently using three of them for a very large project that i hope to one day post here. for now i am merely posting photos of them because they are quite good looking!

Hi! I have been using my moleskine for only a few weeks, but have been looking at them through moleskinerie for much, much longer. I use the large squared notebook to record ideas I have for quilt blocks and layouts for crafty/sewing things, notes during my quilting classes, etc. I live in Tokyo.

Hello!

I've been a bit of a regular looking at Moleskinerie, and I love the moleskine, hopefully like you guys! I started using them for some time, and I write, sketch, diary keep and all that sort of thing.

Thanks!

Hello.
I am Roshnii. I was given a set of molskine journals last christmas and they were my favourite present. I am a bit of notebook fiend and came across moleskines on flickr a couple of months ago.
So far I have only written a few little trinkets in the first journal but I feel very inspired after seeing what all the rest of you have been creating in your books.
I hope to post something here soon.

Ciao for now. x

Hi! I'm Kristen, I have been a fan of Moleskine's for just about 2 years now. I originally bought it to use as a travel journal only, but I've recently converted to using it in my most recent attempt to keep a daily journal. I also have a day planner and a small pocket lined journal.

I'm Leandra. I got my first moleskine journal back in June 2006, did one drawing, then put it away due to life's little disruptions. I've only come back to it again last week. I love this little journal and plan on drawing and journaling a few days a week from now on... I hope to contribute regularly to this Pool. :)

Hello

I'm Martin, I thought I had joined this group a while ago but apparently it was not the case. Whoops. I haven't posted any photographs to the group yet, but I will.

I like notebooks, and this particular variety seems to be doing me pretty nicely at the moment. I use them for everything, mostly lists, drawings of things I'm going to make or for stuffing things in to so they become twice the size they start off as.

I don't tend to fill my 'skines with very consistant content and my handwriting is illegible so I don't know how much my pages will add to the group but hey.

Cheers.

I always doodled in random notebooks until I went to Arizona over winter break to visit some friends (I'm from Rhode Island). While I was out there a companion of mine, Brock, introduced me to Moleskines and when I got home he sent me the invite for this group.
