• Gratitude Journal

    As a paper crafter, I’m not one to begin a December Daily album. Too much work to be honest. Instead, I opted for a December Gratitude Journal project.

    This project is quick, easy, and I’m using up a lot of my left over scrapbooking papers and items. Nothing goes to waste in my studio.

    I purchased this cool Tinne-Mia notebook at Anthropologie. It’s no longer in stock, but you can visit Tinne’s website here. I’m addicted to their notebooks because of the size, especially this one that I purchased. It’s approx. 5×6 and fits perfectly in my purse or tote bag without lugging so much weight.

    You can see more glimpses of my gratitude journal if you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. I’ll try to post more on the blog when I can to include descriptions.

    Meanwhile, back to writing!



    P.S. This is not a sponsored post. I just love Tinne-Mia and wanted to share this love with you.

  • Notes On Paper 

    I like to collect paper. Not just the pretty ones like scrapbook paper, but plain notebook paper.

    I’m always keeping my eyes out for something, especially when I travel.

    I’m always  jotting down ideas on scraps of paper and then tuck them into my notebook. Everything is wrapped around with a rubber band. I know it’s not a sane way to stay organized, but it is for me…for now.

    I especially love spiral notebook paper. Printed, lined or unlined. Give me any notebook and I’m sure I can do something with it.

    Like this.

    I printed one of my favorite Shakespeare sonnet on this paper and I’m going to organize them in my  3-ring planner/organizer. I’ll share more of my collection soon.

    So how do you organize your ideas? Notebook? File Folders? Envelopes? I’d love to know!
