Ok so whether it’s pronounced mole-skin, mole-skine, or mo-les-skeen-eh, Moleskine notebooks are amazing. Growing up, I had (and still have) all sorts of sketchbooks and notebooks of all sizes, filled with doodles, drawings, stories, poems, and diary entries. I’ve ALWAYS loved notebooks. And then I found the ultimate one, thanks to the BF; he introduced me to Moleskines about four years ago. How did I miss these??
I’d like to introduce you to one of the Moleskine notebooks from the Passions series: The Recipe Journal. I was really impatient when these first came out; I called every bookstore within 20 miles to get one as soon as it came out. Don’t act so surprised… you should know this by now. Let’s a take a look at the journal.
Here’s a recipe page, under the “desserts” (not deserts) tab. I like drawing little pictures of how the final product should look; and I can because there’s plenty of room to do whatever doodle I want!
My ma has all of her recipes written, with PENCIL, on coffee stained index cards. This Moleskine is definitely an updated version of the recipe card. I hope they don’t stop producing these; I’ve contemplated stocking up on them, just in case. I guess you could type all your recipes and store them on your computer but… what kind of history is that? You don’t get folds, spills or stains on a computer notepad file. And then you won’t have any stories to tell. You’d be boring with your boring computer files.
If you’ve never met a Moleskine before, you should go check them out. They’re high quality, and have great versatility; there really is a Moleskine for anything you could possibly need as an artist/writer/professional doodler.
Oh hey, how was your Thanksgiving? The BF and I spent it with three of our friends. While carving the turkey, I carved a chunk out of my first finger. Luckily, no stitches were needed, and no, um… human juice… got on the turkey.
Moleskine has absolutely no clue who I am, or that I even exist. I bought this(and other) Moleskine(s) all by myself.
