I am one of those people who hates to make a mistake on the first page of a new notebook, or who wants to start again with a new piece of paper if I mess up a few lines in.
I feel the same way about address books. My family move a LOT from town to town from country to country. I am constantly having to cross out entries and rewrite them. I hate having that mess in my address book so I am always replacing them.
It's almost impossible to find address books in Japan that have the listings in alphabetical order. They usually follow the Japanese phonetic alphabet. Luckily mum usually sends alphabetized ones my way.
Last night I covered a plain black address book with cool wallpaper. I framed a little piece as well although I think it would look better in a dark frame.
The wallpaper is from Wallpaper from the 70s.com and this pattern is Ambrosia I think. I bought a few samples a while back for 0,50 EUR each. They are just gorgeous.
Address books make great gifts ;)
