Boy I’ve been spoiled this year! This is my fourth post about Christmas. I am very blessed to have friends and family who know me so well.

I love this book box. I have a couple of small ones but this is a great size for bigger storage.

The Union Jack notebook came inside the London book box from a friend of mine. It’s from Tri-Coastal Design. The notebook in the middle is a Peter Pauper Press notebook, a gift from my husband, and is the Dragonfly Journal. And finally the notebook on the left is from Mindspring Studio, with illustrations by Sandra Kuck, a gift from another friend.

So up first is the iconic Union Jack notebook.

Love that cover! And the cover art is carried throughout on the pages.

It is a lot easier to see the pattern through the camera. It is super light in real life. The pages are lightly lined and have a beautiful feel. It’s a really sturdy notebook and the coil allows for the journal to lie completely flat. Very excited to use this journal.

This gorgeous journal is from another friend of mine. It also lies completely flat, which is so great. It has a white ribbon bookmark and wonderful illustrations throughout.

Here’s an example of the amazing illustrations – an afternoon tea party! Each page is lined and watermarked, and each page has pink ballerina shoes in the corner. Very sweet. This notebook is so pretty I don’t know if I want to mess it up with writing!

Lastly this glorious Dragonfly Journal from Peter Pauper Press. My lovely husband got this for me; it’s been on my Amazon wishlist for a while. I really love the Peter Pauper Press journals and this one is no exception.

Beautiful endpapers. The notebook is lined and has illustrations on each page, in the corners. It doesn’t lie flat out of the box but would with use.

It doesn’t have a ribbon bookmark but does have an elastic band for closure. On the back, the customary quote:

For behind all seen things lies something vaster; everything is but a path, a portal, or a window opening on something more than itself. – Antoine de Saint Exupery

I’m fairly certain this will be my next journal, when one of my current journals is filled up.

And that ends the parade of Christmas presents. I want to say a big thank you to everyone who gave me a notebook/pen/ink this Christmas; you have made me very happy and I hope I have done the same for you.
