Etsy Love: Back to School - Notebook Edition

There's been a lot of back to school buzz everywhere, and I can barely even start to think of where the summer went! I'm starting at a new college this fall too - so it's the 'ultimate' back-to-school experience! So, I thought, I wanted to share some awesome back to school finds in a cute little series - today's is notebooks!

Katalina at Etsy has a nice selection of notebooks for class. Being standard size, 8.5 x 11", her notebooks would make a wonderful companion in any class. She offers a variety of hand bound notebooks in her shop! She also has a sale going on in her shop! If you buy two notebooks, you get the third for free (more details can be found in her shop)

Shoofly is a another Etsy artist offering a wide selection of journals on Etsy. She offers moleskin journals of various sizes, all of which are decorated with a gocco printing (like a small silkscreen) - making each one original and slightly unique in its own way. Shoofly's large journals are perfect for class; and her smaller ones are great for keeping lists, jotting down ideas and notes, doodling and using as an organizer. Her journals are available with lined pages, blank pages and even graph / gridded pages! Using moleskins myself for jotting down ideas, they're lovely to use and a great gift!

Jengsshop has a wide selection of small blank notebooks - perfect for random doodles, notes and using as a personal organizer. Her colourful journal covers are all personally designed by herself, and the journals are saddle stitched together. The pages in her journals are 100% recycled and her covers are made with paper containing 30% post-consumer content, making these a very economical choice.

If you're looking for that old-school, retro look to your supplies, theScenicRoute at Etsy is the way to go! There unique notebooks are 100% recycled down to the cover - being recycled from an old box, book or game. Inside pages are blank or lined. They also take custom requests, so I'm sure you could request a lined book of a certain design if you truly wanted one!
