I love back to school supply shopping. I scored a coupon in the mail from one of the big box stores and I had such a tough time deciding what to get as everything was pretty! Want to make something pretty and customized? Why not try embroidering a bold diamond onto the cover of a notebook? Pop on over to the blog for the diamond pattern (you will need to take a screen-shot) and stitch away in your favorite color.
