I am constantly brainstorming ideas for this blog. I have to get out of the shower and immediately find a pen and paper so I don’t lose them. In fact, the other day Andrew offered to sit in the bathroom while I’m taking a shower just so I could dictate to him all the myriad of things whirring through my brain. ha!
So, needless to say, I need *some way* to keep track of the project ideas and such that come to me at all hours of the day.
I keep a little notebook.
Actually, I keep several. Each for specific purposes.
- Lemon and Raspberry
- Those Crazy Schuberts
- Teegan Photography
- our last vacation
- our next vacation
- ideas for whenever I make the effort to start my best-selling novel
- odds and ends (grocery list, recommended books, etc)
After looking several places (everywhere from Etsy to Staples) I think the notebooks that best fit my aesthetic AND my practical needs are Moleskine notebooks. They’re simple, bound well, no atrocious ‘decor’, the pages are soft, with rounded-corners and perfectly spaced lines.
I know, I know. Moleskines are hipster trendy. Sigh. I’m sorry to disappoint you. I can’t help it.
But if you can find something ELSE just as perfect feel free to send it to me
Get more ideas from the moleskinerie (their blog)
All kinds of images of what to do with your Moleskine
Plus : check out this fun video from Moleskine. Short. Lovely.
Take a look at the images below … I bought 3 different sets of 2 (in different colors) from Amazon.
The colors help me remember which book is for which subject (really. It sounds complicated but it’s not. It HELPS me!)
How do YOU keep track of your blog/product/life ideas and plans?
Do you keep a notebook? Open Word file on your computer? Photographic memory?
P.S. I love my brown chair !
