I also picked up this sweet simple recycled paper notebook for M8 at Craft 2.0. We'd been talking about making books next year then I read a great post on the book 'How to Make Books' over at Soulemama, and in a few places since. It couldn't be more perfect for what we want. It'll definitely be in our next book order. We're also going to set up a letter-writing box similar to Amanda's book box.
p.s Happy Birthday, Martha. Thanks for the wee chat in your lovely store. Enjoy your birthday dinner out.
