Congrats to Sandra, the winner of our November giveaway draw! If your name is Sandra, check your email -we'll be sending you a note in regards to mailing your wire-bound notebook.
If you weren't the winner, there is one more giveaway draw in celebration of our first year of business. Next month's draw will be held on Dec. 1st. The giveaway item will be announced here and on Facebook in a few weeks. Have a lovely November and keep updated on our Facebook page about the pre-Christmas shopping sale starting Nov. 15th.
You may have heard that we invested in a wire binding machine not-so-long ago to replace our plastic binding machine. Though we love our first notebooks (those bound with plastic combs), we find the wire-bindings to be even lovelier, making it possible for the notebooks to be folded right back for easier writing.
The good news about our update is that we are itching to clear out all our plastic-bound notebooks in order to make way for the wire-bounds. Thus, a sale is born. All throughout October, you will get a free plastic-bound notebook with the purchase of another. The free notebook must be of equal or lesser value. This offer excludes all our wire-bound notebooks. This is a great time to get some early Christmas shopping done, or just to treat your notebook addiction...
Get in on the deal!

We are having a notebook blowout during October -After our recent purchase of a wire-binding machine, we decided to have a crazy buy 1 get 1 free sale on all our plastic-bound notebooks, in order to make way for our newer models. Throughout October, you will get a free plastic-bound notebook with the purchase of another.* Check out the notebooks in our Etsy shop now!
Next month's draw will be held on Nov. 1st. The giveaway item will be announced here and on Facebook in a few weeks. Happy Autumn!

For a while now, I've been wanting to create some pen & ink drawings, but have been at a loss for where to begin. I've always loved drawing with a pen dipped in india ink -the blackness of the ink and its contrast against white paper turns my crank. I recently came across some artwork that used ink to draw over typed print and I knew I had to try it out, but on sheet music. I mean, how lovely is that? Clean black lines over music notes. After some experimentation with various designs, pens, and inks, here's what I came up with:
