Up until recently I've only ever used the smaller Paperblanks notebooks, as they are a convenient shape and size for a smaller handbag, plus the designs are just gorgeous. But I just purchased my first ultra and I might be a convert. The ultra is much heavier than the mini, as you would expect, but it's surprisingly comfortable resting on my lap and obviously I can fit a lot more in it. It looks more substantial and feels more substantial, and the pocket at the back can also hold more stuff (faff like business cards, receipts, story ideas hastily scrawled on napkins, etc). Plus they are very pretty indeed.

I sent these photos of my used notebooks to some friends a while ago and thought I'd share. These are all full of stories, snippets and notes. Most of them are minis or around a similar size to the Paperblanks mini:

And here are my new shiny Paperblanks ultra notebooks:

Hey you! ♥ It's so awesome that you're still on LJ - it feels a lot like a ghost town these days. I miss you! I Hope you're well. I will email you soon.

(A friend of mine went to the Imperial War Museum the other day and it made me think of you. :*)
