I just love little notebooks, especially colorful ones! I have one in my purse at all times, you never know when you need to write/draw something down while on the go. I tend to get creative when I am at the park with the kids, so while Jasmine plays I simply pull out my notebook and draw down my ideas before I forget them! 

A while back my little notebook filled up, and it is time to make a few new ones. So, while I am getting these little notebooks ready, I thought why not share how I make them!!!

Hope you enjoy!
