DIY Folding Travelogues (by Martha Stewart)

Enlarge photos from a recent trip and make foldouts: an accordion type, formed by taping photocopies together, or an origami-style version, using a bone folder to make sharp creases. These inserts, pasted into an ordinary journal, add an element of surprise to the story of the trip and convey some of the city’s grandeur.

((You guys don’t know steampunk until you head on over to this awesome little slice of heaven over here in Baltimore. This is a repurposed power plant that was built in 1900 that was converted into a Barnes and Nobel. It boasts a good selection of books, has the obligatory Starbucks inside with an awesome view of the city, but also has a really neat and informative aquarium that features wildlife you’d find in the bay! This is one awesome looking place to read. If you guys ever visit me up here in Maryland, we’d totally visit this Barnes and Noble.))

*barfs from over-excitement*

omg I’ve been here. I was scrolling past this like….wtf this is familiar.
