This book is full of my favorite things. I picked out my favorite colors and drew my favorite flowers one by one on blank pages. As I draw using my favorite colors, shapes, and flowers, I enjoyed the time I spent drawing in the notebook, and I slowly fell for the sketchbook that is full of my joyful times. Like this, creativity starts with what you like. If you completely focus on yourself and look deeply into what you like, there is creativity and hidden happiness. Everyone has different ideas and different preferences, so anyone can create their creative happiness. I hope that the happiness I found while drawing on this little notebook will come to you as well.
