Notebook Addict of the Week: Someone on Twitter?!?!

The image below was submitted as an addict of the week candidate a while ago, and I’ve somehow lost track of who sent it! But it looks like a lovely collection. My apologies for losing track of who this came from– if these are your notebooks, please let me know so I can give proper […]
