I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and saw a million cute ideas. So I whipped out my Handy-Dandy Notebook and walked around the store, scribbling away. I realized today, when I went to look for the notebook to find something to make and blog about, that the notebook is one of my best ideas. Yes, it’s just a notebook. One of those Five Star Fat Lil’ Notebooks. I decorated it as we were in the middle of a move, so it’s not the cutest. It was made with magazine cut outs and packing tape. I’ve only used half of it or I would make a whole new one.
The real key to this book is it has most any information I would need in it. I write down my spur of the moment craft ideas. My phone conversations with the insurance company or bank, I have paint chips stapled in for when I go to but paint. My husbands prescription refill stickers are in there so I don’t lose them and can call them in whenever I think about it. My class schedule and the books I need to buy for the next semester are written in there with the amazon prices in case I find a better deal. There are lists, calendars, dinner ideas, important phone numbers, sticky notes and other important memos stapled in. Without this notebook, I would forget everything and be lost. Needless to say, it’s with me all the time.
