Imagine my delight when I came across a wonderful green linen portfolio with a clipboard and solid backing to sketch, write and drawn on, AND four separate roomy sections to store finished artwork or work in progress. A magnetic closure holds it all together. It is in beautiful condition and only cost $ 2.99 at the thrift store!
THIS PHOTO REPRESENTS THE REAL COLOUR GREEN
I began to look through my stash of note/sketchbooks for something that would complement it. I figured at least one for notes would make sense, and pulled out a simple one that looked very efficient and matched the portfolio perfectly. Slim, lined paper... it would do the job.
Then I found a "Butterfly in Spring" note/sketchbook with smooth, unlined cream paper that takes writing and sketching well. A ribbon acts as a page marker, there is an envelope at the back for keepsakes and a sturdy elastic keeps it all together.
I came across another one a friend gave me quite a while back simply because it reminded them of me (a lovely thought and much appreciated.) It has a thicker, smooth, cream lined paper, and a ribbon to mark the pages too.
Last but not least is a 2013 diary another friend gave me last Christmas. The paper is lined, cream, acid-free, rich and velvety to write on. It has an sturdy envelope at the back and two ribbons to mark the pages.
I'm spoiled for choice! Which one do you like the best?
Leave me a comment below, and tell me which note/sketchbook you would choose, and why. On January 15, 2014 I will randomly select a name as the winner and send them the following as a "Thank You" for joining in the fun ~
* "Butterfly in Spring" (approx 3 1/2" x 5 1/2") note/sketchbook
(the one of the left of the photo)
* One of my "Wild Things" (in the colour scheme of their choice)
because inside each and every one of us,
there is still a wild spirit... dancing
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
