Toby notepads

We just made this photo notepad on Pinhole Press (my friends' company) and I wanted to share. We're totally in love with it, and I can't stop staring at it on my desk. :) Now I want to make a bunch more with wedding photos and our favorite snapshots.

You can make your own photopad here. (Wouldn't they make adorable Mother's Day presents for moms or grandmas?)

Thank you for sharing! I immediately hopped onto Pinhole Press to make my mom one as a Mother's Day gift - great idea!

She is going to LOVE it! thanks again!

This is completely random, but I know you have a love for Iceland, and I just had to share a few books I've come across lately, set in Iceland that you might like to check out.

-Windows of Brimnes by Bill Holm
-Jar City by Arnaldur Indridason
-Last Rituals by Yrsa Sigurdardottir
-Independent People by Halldor Laxness

Maybe some good reading in your "free time!" :)
