I love notebooks! So much so that I can't use anything but cheap ones. The beautiful ones are just too lovely to be spoiled with scribbled shopping lists and phone numbers - they demand important thoughts. So they remain pristine, in anticipation of such thoughts (and the development of elegant handwriting).
But still, I want pretty books for my lists. The solution: ordinary notebooks covered with pretty stuff. Washable, reusable, and unintimidating. They'll be in my shop later today.
