I always enjoy the Sketchbook Sneak Peek series at Design Sponge. Here’s one from a while back, featuring Courtney Wotherspoon. What are your go-to sketch book supplies? Are there any brands or media that you’re particularly drawn to? Pens, Uni-Ball Deluxe Micro, always black. Sometimes a blue ballpoint pen sneaks in if I can’t find […]
I spotted this neat little notepad in one of NYC’s few remaining independent office supply/stationery shops, I now forget which one. I thought the map design was cute, and also couldn’t believe it was only $1.49!

This week’s addict calls himself a “hoarder!” Yet he also has a generous spirit in his addiction: “I typically give most of these away, especially the Moleskines, to students as they want to write in what I’m writing in. I do journaling with them also so we kinda compete.” From top left: A three pack […]
Here’s the latest notebook offering from the folks who also bring us Blackwing pencils: the Blackwing Slate Notebook. Let’s take a look at the sample the company shared with me. I immediately noticed that it was in a similar style to a Notes & Dabbles notebook I reviewed not long ago, as well as the […]
This week’s repeat addict was featured about a year ago with my first ever video submission. Now she’s back again with another great video documenting her growing journal collection and some of the life experiences that have been documented in those journals. See more at TheJournalCEO – YouTube. Here’s what the JournalCEO has to say: […]
Super cute! I love how the elastic closure on this Nuuna notebook looks like the tape unraveling out of the cassette. That’s one aspect of using tapes that I am NOT nostalgic about! Via Retro To Go: Mixtape Notebooks by Nuuna.
I spotted this brand when I was in Paris– they have some very cute designs: See more at their website.

I’m often dabbling with watercolors in sketchbooks that aren’t really made for using them– regular notebook or sketchbook paper can deteriorate a bit with wet paints, or wrinkle and buckle a lot as it dries. So I’ve been experimenting more with using actual watercolor paper in hopes of better results. I’ve had various watercolor pads […]
Sarita emailed me some photos of a great collection! Sarita says: “I’m not even sure if this number is accurate, but I believe I have about 25 unused & 35 used or briefly written in notebooks in this collection. I have a very bad habit of picking up notebooks that are cute and I end […]
Newsflash! People like using notebooks, even in our digital age! Below is a screenshot of a German video news segment (in English) about people using notebooks and sketchbooks, particularly Moleskines. My favorite part is the appearance of fellow notebook blogger Christian Mahler from Notizbuchblog.de. See the video at The Comeback of the Notebook | All […]
