It's a New Year, Baby - And for me that means a New Notebook


to you, your family and friends.


I don't know about you, but I like to keep a little notebook in my purse. I jot down odd bits of information. Sometimes a phone number, sometimes an idea for a new project and sometimes a memory I want to keep. Well, this years notebook, at least the one I will start with, is going to be a little Moleskin. I love them. Don't know why. Just do. I made this one my own.

I stamped several different images in several different colors. And then colored the border in with watercolors. I used a workable fixative to seal it. I also used my gold leafing pen to gild the edges of the pages. I couldn't get a picture to show this little feature, but, I think it looks really cool. Trust me on this one.

I even wrote the first note in it. A little bit of gratefulness for the New Year.

What are you doing NEW right now? I know that there are A LOT of resolutions going on, but what are you doing NEW right NOW?

Oh, I love having a notebook in my purse - I have a notebook in there right now. HOWEVER, it is not 1/10th as sharp looking as yours! I love this and it's a great project for this week's OG theme!
