Happy 2013! While I’m not the type of person to take New Year’s resolutions very seriously, I do have one ritual that I perform every January: starting a new notebook. If you’re as obsessed with stationery as the rest of us Paper Place crew, then you probably have a dozen notebooks on the go at the same time (and a stack of blank ones that are just too pretty to write in, too!), but I do like to start a new one at the beginning of the year. This is usually a small, pocket-sized book that I carry around for twelve months to jot down ideas for new projects I’d like to work on throughout the year, new books and records and restaurants to check out, or whatever comes to mind while I’m roaming around the city. These new mini notebooks that we received from Paperways in Korea are just perfect for this purpose. They are inexpensive and colourful – exactly what everyone needs in January! – and have fantastic graphic patterned pages.
My favourite Paperways notebook has a light, creamy cover and an orange and blue grid pattern inside (and it’s only $3.95!). The pages just happen to match my favourite roll of washi tape, so I used some to make page dividers.
