Mother's Day Gift Idea: Kid's Self-Portrait Notebook

When Nathan's mom asked him to create a self-portrait, he drew this excellent robot version of himself.

I made it into a refillable notebook with a ribbon bookmark using faux leather colors that matched the illustration. (Photo notebook, available online and in our Seattle store.)

So here you have it, the Nathan collection. I love the idea of using a child's drawing on something utilitarian like a wallet. The images are there daily to remind you of the child who drew them.

More broadly, the pictures remind you of what it feels like to be a child -- ready to create, color and play.
