  1. I try to write at least once a week about an interesting person I've met. It encourages me to interact with people at the supermarket, waiters and the people I see everyday on the street. It's my own little 'homework' but I do it because I need that extra excuse to put myself out there.

  2. I have a small notebook that I bought at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh where I write to-do lists, events/shows I want to check out over the weekends that I read or hear about, restaurants I want to check out, names of artists that I want to look into for inspiration. Most of these are lists though and I often draw a little box that I check once I cross it off my list.

  3. I love the first one! I would love to have one of these, they are so special and it would be great to keep all my recipes and food notes. Love it.

  4. Love these! I can't live without my notebooks - old school marble one I use for work meetings; small leather bound one with a pretty bee imprint for important passwords; and the one that changes most often I use to jot-down ideas for food and inspiration, things to check-out, things to write about etc...Forget the computer, I am a pencil and paper kind of girl!

  5. this is quite the coincidence! my favorite journal is one that i bought about 5 years ago. on the top is a beautiful photograph of pea pods, and on the back red raspberries. i've been filling it up with recipes, and am getting to the last few pages. recipes clipped from newspapers and magazines, written in by friends, housemates, family members, old notecards taped in... it's quite a treasure to me. :)

  6. These are so sweet! I would use one for lists and recipe ideas!

  10. I pick up my fave notebooks in France during back-to-school shopping season--there are lots of kinds and they're everywhere from mom & pop stationers to ginormous hypermarkets. Back here in NYC, they're great reminders of past travels. Love your new notebooks, and would choose the warmth of the craft-paper color over the cool gray.

  11. Oh, and starting a new Artist's Way round, so I really really need this! ;)

  12. a notebook I can't live without is the one I use for keeping quotes. I'm a bookworm & every time I read something extra good I just need to put it in that notebook.

  13. I love the notebooks! I'm a bit of a notebook-aholic actually. My favorite believe it or not is a spiral one from Muji, with a white plastic cover, and white pages inside with small dots that simulate a graph paper effect. I have multiple, one is for blog notes, another is for mood board cuttings, and another is for my to-do list.

    I'd love to add yours to my collection!

  16. What a charming journal! I love how whimsical it is.

    I have this hardcover journal that looks like a vintage copy of "Pride and Prejudice." In it, I provide a safe house for my short stories, photographs, journal entries, as well as fabric swatches, paint chips, and ideas for future craft projects. It's hands-down my most prized possession.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Gorgeous, Claudia, I love it! It's much too pretty to use for shopping lists.

    My current favorite journal is a small, hardcover 5-year diary where that you write just a few lines in every day.

  18. Beautiful! I always use journals for recipes, so this is perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is lovely! I'm always scribbling down thoughts or notes to myself in my notebooks or in actual books (which gets me in trouble). My most memorable & perfect notebook was a travel journal given to me by my sister. It was waterproof, pocket-sized and cheerfully patterned.

  20. My favorite notebook has dotted graph paper. I try to write a few notes in it everyday but I don't know where I can find another just like it so I'm trying to make it last!

  21. My favourite notebook was a gift from the advertising firm I work at. It's red, got our logo on it and also my name. I use it for every bit of an idea I get for my various projects at uni – I'm a graphic design student.

  22. My favourite notebook is a beige beauty and I use it for all these every-day-to-do-lists... Whom I want to call, etc. ... Need it very much :)

  26. wow, what beautiful illustrations! I love the natural texture and earthy quality to them.

    In answer to your question... My most favourite notebook is one of my grandmas from when she was at school. It was found when we cleared her house after she passed away many moons ago.
    It has such lovely watercolour pictures of feathers, beads and simple still life compositions.

    It truly inspires me whenever I look at it and reminds me how lucky am to have had such a wonderful lady in my life.

  28. ...my most treasured notebook would be my brown paper journal, I'm always scribbling and sketching away and using it for my inspiration. But it is getting a bit tatty as it comes everywhere with me, so i could do with a new one! :) x

  29. I love journals and notebooks and keep them in my purse, by my bed, in my coat and on any bookshelf in the house and studio. It's hard to pick a favorite, but my current go-to journal has a kicky Barcelona design on it and—since I bought it in a little shop off La Rambla—it reminds me of tapas and sunshine while I wait for Vermont snow to melt and jot thoughts, notes and sketches for new ideas to make in the studio.

  30. My favorite journal is always the newest one of the group. All those blank pages are inspiring. It's a blast to go through the filled ones, see how certain illustrative/design ideas keep showing up.

  35. My most treasured notebook would be one I picked up many years ago at an Indigo book shop. I loved the green colour and the patterns on it and I liked the idea that you could rip pages out of it without damaging it. I originally bought it to write about my travel adventures, but it's turned into an everything book from inspiring quotes to poems to recipes and songs, etc.

    You have a lovely blog and I'm glad I discovered it.

  36. That is a lovely notebook!

    My most cherish notebook is my gardening journal. It is where I can keep track of my planting dates, progress and paste photographs. This winter it was one of the things that got me through the long and cold season, giving me hope that I would be able to dig in the dirt again.

  37. i have a few different notebooks i use all the time...and, as a chef, i'm always jotting down fun flavor combinations or interesting preparations. this would be perfect for that! i love your work...

    ReplyDelete
  38. LOVE it! I have 4-5 notebooks but I usually carry my sketchbook around but it's more than a sketchbook, it's like a journal-sketch-recipe-reminder-idea book. I'd love to have just a recipe journal.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love this! Thanks so much for the chance to win. I keep a half-dozen notebooks going at a time. But it's mostly for work. I would love a personal notebook as pretty as this one! xo.

  41. I loooooooove the adorable, fun, and beautiful notebook. I have always had a notebook to write down recipes, thoughts, crafts, but they are all just plain notebooks with a plain boooring cover. What a creative and wonderful idea of a notebook. You rock!

  43. My favorite notebook is an old moleskin with unlined pages. I don't write in it page-by-page, I like to open to a random spot in the book, jot down an idea, a thought, a doodle, and then close it. It makes flipping through the pages fun!

    ReplyDelete
  44. My most treasured notebook is a little leather bound book with handmade recycled pages. I used it to write in when I was ages 14-18, those crazy, influential and amazing years. It is so packed with extra pages and flowers and yarn and randomness and each pages is so full you can't even see the paper. It's like a story of my life, and I love it.

  45. I love that beautiful food journal!

  50. I have a Moleskin notebook that I first bought before studying abroad my junior year of college in Hong Kong. I wrote about all things: food, fun, school, travel, and adventure. Two years later, and it's one of the most prized possessions because it's a keepsake of my fondest memories from traveling! - Lauren

  64. This is gorgeous. I don't usually use notebooks, but this one would have a treasured place. I absolutely love the idea of a favorites collection.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have a notebook that I take on all of our trips to record our travels. I think I'm on my 5th book now. I love reading back over the years to remember where we've been and the fun we've had.

    I also have a notebook of loose leaf teas I've tried. We have a big tea shop in town with over 300 flavors so I like to write down what I liked and didn't.

    AND - I have a garden notebook to record when I planted things, how well the harvest was, and what I would change next year.

    To summarize - I like notebooks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am a journal nut! I carry 3 mini notebooks (1 moleskine, 1 for "important info" and one for to do lists) in my purse and always have a sketchbook near. My favorite is my sketchbook, usually a watercolor paper pad. Going back to look at my doodles/sketches/work months later always makes me smile and re-inspires me!

  70. I live by my note books & I write everything down in them. My most precious note book has my labour contractions written out in time and strength etc. I can't read much of it but it really makes me smile:) ♡
