    This made me smile Kim because like a lot of papercrafters, I love pretty stationery and find it hard top resist a lovely notebook. However, it doesn't matter how many notebooks I have I still have an issue about using them in case I SPOIL them. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that despite a large collection of notebooks, you will still find me hunting for a scrap of paper to make a note about a craft idea or technique LOL

      I know! I'm totally the same LOL! I have a lot of yum pristine notebooks and journals that I can't bring myself to mess up! So I decided that this year I am going to be brutal and I'm using them. Next year I will be working on all those pretty papers I can not bring myself to cut up 😀 What are we like?! 😀
