Back to School Notebooks VIDEO

So, my 3 eldest sons are back to school next week, and my youngest son starts in playgroup. And what do you do for the child that’s returning to school? Give him a notebook covered in Christmas paper. Isn’t that obvious???!!!

Okay okay, I jest, but actually, this is Christmas paper. Or more accurately, this is designer series paper from a collection called ‘Seasons of Style’ that is making it’s debut for a short time only, in the new Autumn Winter catalogue.

For me, my Christmas preparations generally start during October and November. I don’t work hugely far in advance for my own family, although for work purposes, I can often be found making my plans as far ahead as May (yes, you read that right, in May!)

But I loved this paper on sight. In fact, I loved both the Christmas papers, and the Sweater Weather paper, but I didn’t want to have to wait until nearer the ‘festive’ season to use them. And being that girl, the one who bucks the rules, well, it had to be done really didn’t it!

So here are my 4 sons’ new notebooks, and there is a video to go with it (it’s Friday after all!), and I hope you like them. If you watch the video to the end, you’ll get a sneaky peek of another notebook that will be featuring here in the future!
