Marina Outdoors Moleskine cover art

Last weekend I went to the craft fair in Ballater and found these awesome decorated Moleskine cahier notebooks by Marina Outdoors.

I wanted to buy everything on the table. I don't even normally go for cahier covers, but these look so great with her artwork screen printed on the covers I couldn't resist buying some.
I got two Extra Large and my husband got two Large. (In her etsy shop she calls them Large and Medium respectively).

These are the notebooks my husband got for some colleagues of his who are in ship building. The contrast of the color on the dark blue looks very striking.

Here is one of the big notebooks I got, with the Atlantic salmon life cycle on the cover. Brings me back to my biologist days! I love it.

The other notebook I got has a great quote from John Muir on the cover. It says, "I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in." This is how I feel when I walk in the forest: it's the best place for me to think.
These two notebooks were in her seconds box, with minor smearing of the silver color on the covers. No big whoop. My photos really do not do them justice, they look amazing in person.

I had to force myself to walk away from the table before I bought absolutely everything. Now I wish I had bought one of her butterfly printed covers. Also my husband wanted the one that says "The mountains are calling and I must go." Father's Day gift perhaps? She also does greeting cards and screen prints! Seriously, I wanted everything.

If you are looking for something different that you will enjoy using every day, I highly recommend checking out the Marina Outdoors etsy shop at www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MarinaOutdoors  (she ships worldwide). Also find her on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MarinaOutdoors
