Pooi says, "My five year old son Sean likes to
bring bits and pieces of papers along with his colouring materials in a
tool box whenever we go outdoors. He loves to draw pictures as he
explores the nature. I made these simple, adorable, and easy jotter books for him to to bring
along. He simply can jot down anything he fancies.
The Remarks Stickers fit right in this project with eye-catching
finishes. I used them as titles for the jotter books. There are a lot of
varieties in the remarks stickers and I’ve planned to use them more."
Here are some fun facts to help you get to know Pooi better:
