If you are in the New York area and are interested in learning how to make a journal, I have news for you. Sorry, wish I'd read about this earlier.
On Saturday, in around 10 hours your time, in partnership with the Bronx Council on the Arts, a local artist, Lis Ortiz, will lead a free journal-making workshop at the Huntington Free Library. Participants should bring their own materials to recycle into a journal, perfect for committing any resolutions for 2013. Reservations required.
(Saturday from 12:30 to 3 p.m.; 9 Westchester Square, Westchester Village; 718-829-7770; bronxnyc.com.)
