Her Obsession | Notebooks
Guys, I have a problem – every time I see a pretty notebook, I’ve got to have it. No one can hold me back – well except for myself. Especially if that beauty isn’t cheap or on sale!! I’ve had this problem ever since I could write – diaries, journals, school notebooks, etc. I practiced my handwriting like it was my job, just so my diaries could be pretty inside too. (I almost had a meltdown over my handwriting when I was little – hah.) Can you tell I’m a perfectionist yet? ;) Click more for sneak peeks into my darkest secrets – psssh NOT. Sorry… I’m not that interesting! Enjoy!
Inside my fave notebooks, starting from the bottom left;
A simple tan leather Pierre Belvédère transformed into a beautiful glittering notebook with Katie’s Fashion Illustration. (Summer Leopard) It now holds all my lovely penpals addresses & birthdays! Help me fill it up by being my penpal? ;) $3.00 – $5.00
My first official “big girl” diary – this is actually the first one I’ve finished too! I started it in ’08 and finished it in ’10. I had taken it with me to the hospital during my mental breakdown. It’s always very interesting to read and reflect on how far I’ve come. I got some of the other patients (I considered my friends during my stay) to sign the back of my journal as if it was a yearbook. Great thing to read on a down day! :) This is by C.R Gibson. $19.99 (splurge!!)
I just got this beauty recently at Chapters after eyeing it for a while – and it was on sale! It’s a To-Do list notebook with boxes for you to check off. I adore it. By Pierre Belvédère $3.98
After seeing the above notebook I was in peacock heaven, and then I saw this one! It was perfect to get me back into journalling again – I was just getting out of a depression then. It was on sale too – I was sold, of course! By Fringe Studio $5.00
And last, but certainly not least – my “Blog Love” book. I originally bought this in Stratford Ontario as a simple lime green notebook. I used it for miscellaneous musings and then eventually it turned into the lovely book it is now. It contains a bucket list for P.E.I, bucket list for NYC, my blog planner & goals, and a bunch of other things. Not sure who it was by, but it was another splurge! $15.00-20.00 (?)
Do you collect notebooks? If not – what is your obsession/collection?
