Get ideas in the shower? Or in the rain? or while doing dishes? Behold the Waterproof Notebook, which is comprised of 80 sheets of waterproof paper and a graphite pencil. (I hadn’t really been aware of such a thing as waterproof paper, but apparently you can tear out the sheets like an ordinary notebook.)

How much do you like these bookmark sets? I might love them, I really might. Each bookmark has a re-usable glue like a sticky label, so they’ll last for a few months. When I was looking around for images to use for this post I found a whole bunch of other Stipee Bookmarks around $8.00 from Japanese Gift Market. My favorites are the Savanna and Forest, mostly because I like the landscapes, but there’s more than a handful of other ones to choose from (Numbers (color) could be fun to use too).

Shh…it’s a secret. At a first glance these Air Mail envelopes from Sweetie Pie Press are nothing out of the ordinary, but when held up to a light source they reveal a secret message, and in this case, an uplifting and comforting one. This is a first in series of envelopes so we’re definitely looking forward to seeing the upcoming ones.

If you’re in a creative rut and need some help thinking outside the box, this Inspiration Pad may be able to help. It throws away any standard line or grid system and in place of it are pages of zig zags, swirls, and non-sensical bends. Each page should inspire you to draw or write differently, or possibly give you a headache. Each notepad contains 32 pages and measures 165 x 210 mm.

That’s right, Moleskine has added quite a few United States cities to its collection of city notebooks. The city map is invaluable, and there’s tons of room for making notes on shops and restaurants to revisit (or avoid). I fully recommend getting whichever one for exploring whatever city you’re visiting, as I’ve found mine extremely handy to have.

Yeah I know, a rectangular stickie note makes the most sense in the squared-off world we live in. But whatever, these cool geometric shaped ones are just fun. Even if you don’t actually do work with them, they’d be great to have around for gifts and other crafty projects. Someone buy me a pack of hexagons.

This notebook might not look like much, but that’s precisely the point. No logos, subltle barely-there white lines on the pages, and it opens fully flat. So while all these things are small details, added up together it makes for a notebook that doesn’t get it the way of your drawing/writing.
