Drum roll please....
It's official. The jotters are here and ready to be snatched up. It's a collection of three and they look rather lovely together. The colours are deep and mossy. Just what I like. My wee animals are a bit shy and are hiding behind their blankets and hedges.
I have been taking them on a trial run for the last month, carrying them in my bag, drawing in them with ball point pens and magic markers. Basically seeing how they stand up to other jotters. They passed with flying colours!
I am so glad I went for blank pages as sometimes I feel restricted by lines. I want to be able to draw and write on the same page. If you are like me then you will love these.
It has been a whole year searching high and low for the paper I wanted and the manufacturer based in the UK who understood my vision. Not an easy task. The colour and texture had to be just right. The paper I eventually found is called popset oyster and I must say it is lovely to write on. The cover is a durable weight that wont become dog eared easily. I am also trying out a linen spine on them so they last even longer. I think this makes them look a bit more special.
So ladies and gentlemen I really hope you like them and hopefully they will be as successful as the cards. You may just see them popping up in all sorts of lovely shops.
When my new website is up and running you will be able to buy them through the shop. This is just the beginning of a long line of notebooks and jotters. More in the pipeline.....
