DIY Notebooks

Home from Hawaii… and it’s back to the grind.

As I am seeing loads and loads of photos from #NYNOW, I thought it would be fun to do a post dedicated to notebooks.  I am an unapologetic notebook hoarder.  I literally mean that – everytime and anytime I see a beautiful notebook, I purchase it.  I’m not really sure for what anymore these days since I have so many…

Anyway, my favorite type of notebooks are roughly 8.5 x 5.5.  They’re generally the standard sized notebooks for anything work/ note taking related, but I also love jotters.  Jotters are anywhere from 4×5.5 to 3×4 in size.  They’re perfect for little notes, recipes, grocery shopping, etc.

But – who wants to pay for these tiny little itty bitty notebooks that you fill up in less than a week?  I know I don’t.  I’d rather save my money for the larger notebooks, haha.

That said, I thought it would be fun to make some notebooks for my bff’s 30th bday, which I’m hosting at my home this weekend (busy busy!).  There will be LOTS of sneak peaks regarding her party, and this is the first.

I’ll be doing something with these notebooks that tie everything decor-related together.  She’s a youtube cook (link here: eatnowcrylater) so it’s all kind of perfect.

These were all designed, printed, & packaged in my home office – and they were crazy easy.  I’ll post a tutorial sometime next week!

For now, I must finish filling a crazy amount of shop orders and of course, unpacking. :)
