Do you journal? I don't... at least not in the traditional sense. However, I do keep a notebook where I basically do a daily brain dump-- project ideas, party planning, shopping lists, to do lists, gift ideas... if I thought of it, most likely it's in there. While my notebook is an important part of keeping me functional and somewhat organized, I tend to lose it almost on a daily basis. Why? Because it's pretty darn boring and tends to get lost amongst all the rest of the stuff on my desk.
here's my journal in its present state
A little basic and a whole lot of retro... who doesn't love a composition book? I purchase them by the pack at Costco (6 books for $4.99). Does anyone still use them to write compositions though?? It really makes the perfect notebook-- thin, but the pages are large enough that I have plenty of room to scrawl and draw; the binding is strong, nothing worse than having a notebook fall apart of you; nicely lined so I don't have to force myself to write small and neat; and it fits in my purse with room to spare.
here's a peek inside... i suppose it's like a glimpse into my brain... eek! it's a little messy in there :)
Since my "journal" contains all of my creative ideas (and then some), I decided to to get creative with it. I kept it simple-- pretty paper, pretty punches and glue.
