Scrabble Notebook, No Big Deal

YES BIG DEAL! My shopping drought is over because I finally felt inclined to buy something--A SKETCHBOOK MADE OUT OF A SCRABBLE BOARD. My college friend and now neighbor Gabs and I explored Williamsburg's indoor flea market Artists & Fleas and discovered these one-of-a-kind notebooks made out of vintage board games. Darrah/Dara, the shop owner of Another Work In Progress hand makes each book, and she allowed us to customize our books with personalized "Z" and "G" Scrabble Letter keychains. You can visit her Etsy site but I recommend going in person because the stock is different in store. I haven't decided what I'm using the notebook for because I have a few half-used sketchbooks to finish first. A few ideas are: 1) Scrabble Game Scorekeeper, I can document every game I lose, 2) That children's book I've been meaning to write, 3) A NYC scrapbook of all my favorite memories... whatever the use, I can't help but be inspired by the ingenuity of turning my favorite board game into one of my favorite things--a notebook.


  1. Yay!!! Today was a great day... a great start to our bk summer. Maybe you can document that? :)

  2. I actually really like that idea. I'll use the notebook to document our time living in BK.
