I don't know about you, but one of my favorite things about welcoming in a new year is all the possibilities it holds. Instead of thinking about what I haven't accomplished, it is time to focus and get motivated to make the new year a better one. Even though I love the conveniences of technology and all the helpful apps out there, I am still a firm believer in a good ol' trusty notebook and pencil/pen. And nothing beats picking out the perfect notebook to jot down my goals/ideas/ or sketch out designs/projects. I found the "Hmm" notebook (by Her bike, a Korean company) at a local stationery shop and love the silver foil on kraft cover.

I've had this O-Check Design Graphics sketchbook in my stash for a few years and I am happy to finally be putting it to good use to sketch out some designs for a new project. I love that the front cover functions as a folder to slip in random paper and the elastic band is handy for keeping the sketchbook closed. Hope this year involves new ideas and fun projects for you (or at least a few cute notebooks)!
