I love shopping for school supplies. Markers, notebooks, crayons and folders grab my attention by mid-summer and I am ready to hit those well- laden isles of any and every store that carries such delights. I no longer have anyone who needs that last-minute run to the store for that special 3 ringed binder that a particular teacher requires but that we forgot to get on the last trip to the store but I still think of September as a "new year" with new beginnings and unlimited potential.
With that in mind, I decided there was no better time to post a few "notebooks" that have found their way out of the studio notebook and into existence.

This is the first notebook I created. It is a stamped, piano-hinged beauty created on card stock. I haven't decided what I will use it for yet but the possibilities are endless.

When I became fascinated with polymer clay, I decided that a notebook cover might prove an interesting challenge and so this second notebook was born. It, too, has yet to find a purpose.
I found wooden rulers in a collection of school supplies left behind as my children moved onto college and not wanting them to go to waste, I decided to try a tag book with a ruler hinge. It has that industrial look that I find appealing.
And finally, a book that reminds me of a very special trip to Cape May, NJ complete with shells collected from that adventure.
May those of you who have loved ones heading off to classes or are heading off to classes yourselves have a blessed and fulfilling school year!
