Just a quick note from me today as I'm in the middle of putting in the final touches to my new website, and I've spent way, way too much time staring at a screen this week. Still, I wanted to share with you these notebooks I've recently made as gifts to people I'm glad to have in and around my life.
This magpie bullet journal I made for my new friend in Sweden. He likes magpies and bookbinding.
The inner covers are lined with pages from an old fauna book. The back cover also has some handwritten notes.
These two notebooks are on their way to someone who doesn't read this blog, so I can share these without ruining the surprise. I'm enjoying the minimalism of using actual book cloth again, but I haven't abandoned my favourite material linen. Quite the opposite: there are some really pretty gilt linen books underway.
The dark gray one is a little larger sewn boards binding than my tiny samples earlier, and it has lightweight watercolour paper pages suitable for all sorts of artistic endeavours.
The black long stitch binding has dotted grid drawing paper pages. I hope there will be doodles on these pages, too.
If you're looking for a dotted grid notebook for yourself, I just added ten new long stitch hardcover notebooks to my shop. Their pages are made of heavyweight bright white drawing paper. The last lot of long stitch bullet journals sold super fast (thanks, guys!!), so head over to my shop before they're all gone!
