DIY Field Notes Edition...

if you know me, you know i LOVE me some Field Notes!

so let me show you my Field Notes treatment, and a quickie DIY:

first off, you remember this hockey puck failure:


well, i also failed at a Houndogg Designs hockey puck, but never snapped pics. all this time, i kept the little tape cutouts of my "H" logo, because they ended up looking so sharp. i place a cutout under the first page, and just work a quick pencil rubbing over top of it.

check it out:


nothing like personalizing yer Field Notes!


hope that gives you an idea or two, and hope you all have a great weekend!
