Hang around me long enough and you'll soon learn about my addiction to office supplies. Pens! Pretty Papers! Notebooks! Colored Stickies! Dangle any of those in front of me and watch me start to twitch. Usually when I start jonesing for a fix I head for the nearest OFT (office supply temple) and wander about oohing, aahing, and fondling the paper goods until I find something I can't live without. Surprisingly, other than a few forays to Amazon's overwhelming selection I've not explored my addiction for pretty notebooks (floral covers! elastic bandy thingies! peacock colors!) via the online world.

Until today.

Today I learned there are entire websites and blogs devoted to the enjoyment of notebooks. Yeah, I'm twitching right now. It ain't pretty. Be happy you can't see me. The world might think there's nothing as heated as the Star Wars versus Star Trek debate, but they've not experienced the ferocity of a Moleskin aficionado when challenged.

Like any good addict, I'm willing to share a few of my new favorite web hangouts:
Do you love pretty notebooks? Have an old favorite you can't do without? Come share in this safe place with your fellow office supply addicts.

Wow!! I thought I was the only one who liked pretty notebooks amongst my friends, but I never heard of these sites :-) I get mine through etsy.com, online swaps, and outright purchase from either LJ, eBay, or Flickr groups. I love collecting them...

I'm really going to have to check out etsy.com. I guess I'm afraid I'll get sucked in and never make it back out. :) At least w/my wallet intact.

You should be very afeared of etsy. :D

I love notebooks, but I never actually use them... *sigh*

Hey, you! Glad to know my etsy caution is not without merit. :) I do understand having a pretty notebook and not using it. I received a beautiful journal type book with gorgeous papers, binding, and little embellishments inside - and it just sits there and looks at me. I'm afraid nothing I could ever put in it would do it justice.
