I am still making small chipboard notebooks that hold scraps of fabric and notes about projects.
I'm a sucker for these little books. I started using zebra duct tape as the binding tape. Really fun.
When Moleskin comes out with a new notebook, I always want those too. They are small, affordable in general (around $10, although maybe expensive for a notebook), but so very handy that I have a little collection of them.
One for quilting notes, one for spinning notes, one for 'firsts' about the kids - first steps, first lost tooth, etc. We had a first recently where my older son went to a friend's house to play. I had not really thought about it much, but it was the first time I actually let him stay at a friend's house without also staying there. He was so excited and proud and had such a blast.
I know I have said this before....as incredible as growing up is, it's all flying by too fast for my taste. Where is my slow-motion button when I need it? We are having so much fun with these small kids.
