I picked up a bunch of  little notebooks from Dollar Tree last year.  They were four in a pack for $1.00!   This year they're selling them as a three pack of slightly heavier notebooks.  Either way a great deal!

They're fun, quick and easy to decorate.  They're a great way to use up small pieces of paper and tiny embellishments because they only 3 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches in size.  Here's a half dozen of them that I recently made.  They're one of my favorite things to create!

These two are my favorites from this batch. Picking out the images is the best part...sometimes I take forever choosing them.   Do you do you debate forever over what picture to use or what button to add when you make something like this?

I hope you have a wonderful week.....doing whatever it is that gives you joy!

Those little notebooks are so perfect for what you do! And they will be awesome stocking stuffers! I might look for some for my class to decorate as gifts for their parents! Thanks!

I love those little notebooks. I bought a bunch of them a while back and did the same thing. Mine didn't come out nearly as nice as yours though. In answer to your question that's a great big YES. It takes me forever to pick what I'm going to use
