Felt Notebook


I always carry a notebook in my bag, to jot down ideas and information. As I had to get a new one, I fell for this pink Japanese notebook - rather than some kind of thin cardboard, it is covered in felt, a material whose rough yet soft texture I adore (I remember a store in Berlin where all they had was felt products...) The color of the felt is a fresh pink: momo-iro, or the color of a 桃 (momo). Kawai!

This is very cute and I am in the habit of writing things down when I am out and about too - but my notebook is no way as pretty as this, xv.

Very nice. I made my notebook cover so I can have the same looking book each time.

EYHVE - what an INCREDIBLE coincidence!!!!!!!!

One of the hardest decisions in my life is deciding which notebook to buy to replace my used one ...it's tough, because if it isn't just right, it will actually throw off my creativity!

Lol I sound like a Diva! But it's true!
