The Notebooks

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I remember my sister S, when we were much younger, always carrying a notebook in her bag. I thought it was really strange and sometimes even silly but she was always ``in`` her notebook drawing something (she draws amazing things) or writing down her thoughts. Almost every day she was lost in her thoughts! I didn't get it then but I finally do now... 


For the past year I fell in love with notebooks. Not any kind of notebooks but MY notebooks which I cover with wonderful fabrics, with love and passion. I make them for myself, I make them for my friends, I make them for anybody who wants to have a special and unique notebook. They are one of a kind and no one else in the entire world has one like it. Ok ok ok I will show you some.....




The point is that I only now get why my sister always carried a notebook with her at all times. Because the great ideas pop up like bubbles from your brain at the most unexpected second and you must be prepared! Writing down your thoughts makes you feel free, it makes you feel relaxed, it makes you fell.....ok I have to admit that sometimes it looks like you are talking to yourself and smiling like you are in your own little world. I hope nobody is looking at me writing right now! The thing with me is that I am old school. I like writing everything down on paper and then typing it up on my computer. I know that it is twice the work but I don't mind. 

This is the notebook I made lately for myself. I cross-stitched the embroidery on the front and I entirely covered it with this gorgeous romantic fabric. I hope you like it!


How about you? Do you like writing down your thoughts?

  4. I've been writing to notebooks...well since I started learning how to write I think! I have so many notebooks tucked in my closet! I loooove your covers! I have also made one for mine, but it's much simpler that yours, just plain fabric. Love the buttons you added, too!
