I love notebooks. I have a ton at home and I still can't help myself when I see a nice one. I just have to bring it home. I carry one with me at all times. I have a small one for crafting ideas (they can sneak up on you when you least expect it) in my purse and at least two on my desk.

The idea I was referring earlier was of course notebooks. I've found 4.5 x 3.5 inches (roughly 11.5 x 8 cm) a great size to carry around with you. It's basically small enough to fit in your pocket. So, all of a sudden I realized I need to cover small notebooks in vintage book pages. And that's what I've been working on... The first ones are already available in my shop.

I've cover a few with maps from a 1953 travel book, some with animal drawings from a book published in 1951, I've also used pages from the book about British flora and I have some really cool advertisements from a book about the Halley's comet. The last one was printed in the early 80s but the advertisements are from 1910.  I have a lot of awesome books to add to the library later.
