I love notebooks. I have so many notebooks and notepads and sketchbooks all around the house… I find them irresistible! Sometimes it’s the smoothness of the paper, sometimes it’s the beautiful cover. I can’t explain it, it’s a serious soft-spot of mine.
Not long ago, me and a bunch of crafty women came together to celebrate one of the group member’s birthday. This group of girls, all from different backgrounds and geographic locations, is a great new social circle that evolved in the past year. Birthdays are celebrated within this group in a most fun way; Among other birthday activities, we each gave the birthday girl, Michal, a gift and a card which she had to guess who it was from. Mine was kinda easy – everything that pops up is usually made by me…
I made her several notebooks – one large with a hard cover (which I binded with my bind-it-all) and a small pocket size notepad. I added a gigantic wooden pencil and wrapped it up with craft paper that I pre-stamped.
The card was actually a part of a card-book: all the guests made their card the same size, with a design on the front and a few words on the back. Once Michal guessed who made what (based on the front side), she could read her greetings on the back. Then, all the cards were binded together into a book.
It was a great party! The food was delicious and the company was awesome! I made the pink girly cupcakes for desert 🙂
Have a great week!
