Merry Christmas! Thank you for reading my blog throughout the year and leaving so many nice comments. They made my days. This year has been so busy, it's lovely to have a bit of quiet time and relax and plan for 2011. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and aren't stuck in an airport. x

Shop / Live the Love in Darjeeling Notebooks

on
06/11/2010
The perfect-bound versions of the 'Live The Love in Darjeeling' Notebook have arrived! I'm very excited because being left-handed, ring-bound notebooks aren't very usable to me. I can't wait to start using one of these! They printed so very nicely and have lovely rounded edges. If you'd like to get one, I have them available in my shops now: Linotte.Dawanda.com & Linotte.Etsy.com
If you live in Argentina or near that part of the world, it may be easier to get them directly from Monoblock. Check out the other lovely designs, too!
