This week’s addict has been featured twice before: Notebook Addict of the Week (again): Kara, and Notebook Addict of the Week: Kara. Her collection keeps growing and I love seeing more of it! “My boxes of composition & spiral notebooks, blank or filled. They’re so heavy they can barely be lifted. Ugh!” Make sure you […]
This week’s addict has been featured here before with a look at how she prepares her sketchbooks. Here’s how 5 years of those sketchbooks are stored: Although they look very uniform, she says there are 8 different types of sketchbooks in the collection. She was on Sketchbook #46 when the photo was posted in […]
Here’s an interesting notebook– each page is an envelope with a window. Great for collecting bits and pieces and writing notes about them! See more at UNIONMADE – GIFTSHOP – Stock 12 Pocket Album in White.

Rowling‘s plans for writing Harry Potter, on a sheet of looseleaf paper. Wow. See […]

This entry does seem to feature a Moleskine (upper right […]
