Notebooks


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.

No!!!! I too love notebooks, I have quite a collection ... last night after filling up my current one I went out and bought a new one. Now I wish I'd waited. :(

Ah well, I'm sure I can find a use for one of your notebooks too!

Can't wait! They look fantastic. My only problem NOW is which one to choose!

Fantastic! But yours look like the special ones that I also can't bring myself to "spoil"!

These are really great! Such a clever way to make a basic notebook very beautiful, but still entirely usable and unintimidating.

Such a good idea! I know a few of my notebooks could do with stylish covers like that!

I can relate - I used to be totally intimidated by gorgeous leather bound, embossed, silk covered, shiny, pretty notebooks. Far too nice for my mundane scribblings. I managed to semi-overcome this and now almost exclusively use Moleskin (not too pretty.) I love your solution!

Absolutely gorgeous prints, I love them.

These look great! I seem to be addicted to notebooks. I'm not the type to "save" them. I just dive right in and scratch away with my illegible writing. I keep them all once they're all filled up, too, so the prettier the better.

These are beautiful Jesse! When I break my habit of Black cover-White page I'll come knocking for sure. By the way I haven't forgotten the book it's just the time ... sorry I'm so bad at getting around :)

Sarah said...

Ha! I'm just the same as you. Your covers are just gorgeous.

Have just found your site love it ..am trying to print but get not so straight lines with the cutter what does one do? Also love these books how many pages?And also how much?

Jesse said...

Thanks, Kate! Straight lines... I think it's just practice, I'm afraid. I haven't been doing the books for a while, but have just started a new back, and they'll be in my Etsy shop soon.
