Weekly Inspiration- Cardcaptors

Ok, so this isn’t reeeally 100% about crafts. As I may have mentioned, we’re going to Florida soon. I’m making a notebook to take; it’s a little one, handbag sized, with a pocket in the back to put theme park tickets etc. The cover will be decorated with cartoon figures representing everyone going. 

My first thought was DISNEY, even though we’re only going for one day. Awesome. Job done. Plenty of Disney characters to choose from. But then, none of them really have my hair.

And I got to thinking.

Who does?

Cardcaptor Sakura!

Little manga versions of everyone would be awesome. Manga always inspires me to draw.

Lunchtime Lusting – Jpop at Paperchase

Back to school stationery shopping was always fun for me. There’s just something satisfying about writing in a brand new notebook with brand new pens. That feeling that perhaps this notebook will be the one that contains only good ideas and actually stays neat; no crossing out, no scribbles, no mess. Sadly that was never the case!  

The Jpop range at Paperchase is just way too cute- if I was going back to school, I would want everything.

I’m sure I would have remembered things more at school if they were highlighted with these:

Homework would not be a chore if everything was in this handy planner:

I would convince my mum that if I had this, I would never want for another ring binder again:

Lunch would taste so much better from these:

I’m sure I can resist the temptation…
