Have You Seen This? - The Smash Book

I am SO going to make one of these...



I keep a writer's notebook (well, actually scads of them), and I sometimes tuck little bits of non-writing stuff in there to mingle with my poems and lists and musings, but this whole idea of saving random bits and pieces of my life and snippets of inspiration just seems, well, so FUN! And the name of

This little concept is apparently the brainchild of K&Company, and here is how they define it: SMASH. For all the moments and musings that stick. A series of uber-cool books that come with a SmashStick, which is a pen on one end and a glue stick on the other.

And look: there 's a whole blog dedicated to the Smash BookHere's a post on that blog that talks about the genesis of Smash.

Apparently, these little books aren't available quite yet, so I might just turn one of my writer's notebooks into a project like this. But I definitely want to buy a real Smash book because I NEED that SmashStick!

This is my fave new item that debuted at CHA--can't wait to get my hands on the retro aqua Smashbook, but knowing me, I'm gonna want every single color/style of them!

I know I'll be in the minority here, but I just want the smashstick. I'm sure my 11 year old will want one, though!

Love the SMASH book - once it gets full you need some type of ribbon or strap to hold it together.

I just bought the entire line of Smash Book supplies and I LOVE them. The difference with the book from regular books is the paper - it is much thicker then I have seen with any other book to allow for a lot of stuff to be glued on and things to be put in pockets. And I love that each has very retro backgrounds. The books are only $12.99 and very worth the price.
