Notebook love...



I love to write lists and I love a good notebook! These gorgeous books are from Oh Joy. These designs make me want to do some paper-cuts, hand-carved stamps and fabric printing!!!! Stationery makes me a bit giddy!





I am collecting a few nice leather notebooks to write journals for Anya and the new bub. I started Anya's when she was a baby - it is filled with random facts about myself, things about her, my thoughts, dreams and feelings for each other. It was something I wanted to do so she could 'know' me on a deeper level. I intend on handing them over when she is either a teenager or at some age she would actually appreciate them! I hope I can keep up with two books for two kids!!!



How awesome is this envelope?! How would you LOVE to receive some snail mail in that gorgeous package? Yes please...

Goodness, loveliness in note books. Imagine a gorgeous block stamp like that for the Shop gift vouchers. Love Posie

Nice journals. Just like you, I write in a journal for my kids, too. So much nicer for them to get to know us as mothers... on a deeper level... than those 'fill-in-the-gap' all-bout-me type books, don't you think? I must admit, though, I have trouble keeping up with two of them.... Still.... I keep trying, as I would really love to have something special to give them if/when they have kids of their own.

Oh, and btw, you know all we're really interested in on your blog at the moment is to see whether your baby has arrived! Much love.

Great find, what beautiful notebooks. I try and keep a journal for each kid as well. I've been a bit slack lately though and one of them was taken over by the kid and used as a drawing book. Will have to find it and keep trying to keep up.
