Night Owls

I went into town the other day, just to mooch really as I was fed up with my own company. I needed a new notebook:
  • it must be small to fit in my bag:
  • it must be plain pages because I design my scrapbook pages from things I see on my wanderings:
  • it must have a plastic cover as I pull it in and out of my bag so much that paper covered books just get all dog eared
  • and most of all I wanted something that I loved the look of
guess what I found....................................

  • not only the notebook small and neat: 
  • but a little wallet of sticky notes, these will be so useful to mark the pages of layouts I want to scraplift: 
  • a pack of owl stickers: 
  • a lovely spiral mini scrapbook:
  • and a cloth bag to put them all in. The bag comes with its own little wallet with a clip to fit it to your handbag or belt how brilliant was that. 
Thank you Paperchase

Has anyone else had a lovely find? I would love to hear about it if you have.

Great finds! I've been thinking of going by Walmart or Meijers to see what is in the "left over" aisles from the back to school stuff. You've inspired me to get moving on it,,,,I love kewl notepads and stickies!

Paperchase is great, I went in there today and found some cute little christmas bells to put on a garland. Thanks for your comment on my blog.

Yeah! I love Paperchase too... I buy supplies for my own book-binding from there. They do a lovely range of paper - kraft, handmade, recycled, multi-coloured - and also some fab wrapping papers, which are good enough quality to use as covering paper for books. I have made a "100% Recyled" book filled with paper from Paperchase, an "All Green" book with Paperchase recycled paper cover, also some "Butterflies and Rainbows" notebooks, with a whole rainbow of paper inside (there's one in my shop - www.lizziemade.etsy.com). Definitely one of my favourite places to buy.
I also like their owls range. Was sorely tempted last time... I have some rubber stamps with owls on, which I may use to make a fancy book-cover or two. Still, those books are lovely...
Must resist temptation and use the stuff I already have!!

Great finds Mary. We can never have too many notebooks! Love your blog. Very cute grandchildren and love the YouTube clip.

Oh, I love _all_ of those!! I feel a trip to Paperchase coming on ;-)

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
