Inspired by Elise’s action book, I purchased a new notebook to keep track of my creative ideas and tasks. I used to keep ideas for this blog scattered in a bunch of documents and notepads. My scrapbook sketches were usually done on scratch paper and post-it notes. Then I would lose things.
I bought a Blueline Business Notebook, which has dividers so I can keep sections on my blog, scrapbook, and other items. The book has grid paper inside, which is great for making lists and drawings. As you know, I can’t draw a straight line so I passed on blank page books. I’ve been using it off and on for a few weeks.
Realizing that I’m more likely to use it if it’s pretty-looking, I covered it with some fuzzy paper from Paper Source (no longer in stock) that I had in my stash. I used the same notebook covering method described in this post.
Sort of. I took a detour.
Since I had been talking about how great Avery glue sticks are, I thought shouldn’t I be able to save time and just use a glue stick for this project? Wrong. Just for you, dear readers, I took one for the team and tested it using a glue stick. It just didn’t do a great job of holding the paper firmly around the sides. No matter, I was able to fix it by adding Mod Podge (like I was supposed to!) and all is well.
Results so far? The book is holding up very well and I love having all of my notes in one place!
