Something new...

I spent this weekend working on making a new book form - and here it is! It's an organizer/jotter (I have to come up with a better name than that) with a notepad and accordion pockets inside.
I made something that I've been wanting - a place to organize my receipts (besides my bulging wallet) and take notes when I'm out and about.The notepad attaches with velcro, so it can be easily replaced when it runs out. Making a new type of book for the first time can be frustrating - it takes alot of trial and error. I think this particular book is actually version 3.0! I went from square to rounded corners, a new type of elastic...but I really enjoy making new things. It keeps my work challenging and fresh. I've got a few more ideas that I'm hoping to work on soon, and I also hope to have a few of these in my shop soon!

Oh, I like it, what a great idea! Can't wait till you've got some in your shop and I can officially start my Christmas shopping!

Awesome book! There's a moleskin book that is just the accordion pocket, which seemed to me like it was just one more thing to carry around (in addition to a notebook) in my already full purse. The notepad really makes your book standout (aside from looking pretty).
