"In the very near future" List


I am addicted to lists... I suppose it goes back to my teacher training and having to make lesson plans... I have master grocery lists, travel lists, gardening lists etc... I do not do a day planner or daily list...this is my "in the very near future" list... I've tried every kind of way of keeping a list but this is my favorite. Years ago I acquired a 4 x8" notebook with the spiral binding on the side.




I just love it and when I get to the end I just turn it over and go back the other way... I can hold it in my hand easily, it never gets lost and it's easy to make the list progressive.



But when I filled the notebook I couldn't find another one with the spiral binding on the side... Lots of long narrow one with the binding at the top though... So I bought a 6x8" notebook and used the paper cutter to trim it down to "4...













Now with altered art and paper art being so popular I've decided to decorate mine the next time I make one and I found a cool site that does just that... http://www.spotlight.co.nz/inspiration/projects/custom-made-notebook-1/ And I think they would be a great gift....

And this is a test to see if anyone reads the entire blog post. I have this wall thing with about 100 pockets. I used to keep earrings in it and I don't need it.... The first person to speak up and say they want it gets it... I will not be back until later today to post the winner.

Hi Gerry--How big are the pockets on the "wall thing?" And what is the overall size? I might be able to find a use for it, depending on the size.

Love this idea as I also use lists constantly. I have a 6 x 8 notebook that I use but never thought about a 4" one. That would definitely be ideal. I think I will join you in making and decorating one for my 2011 projects. And I would love to have the pocket hanger if it is still available. Thanks.

Well, I don't need the wall thingee (which is good since I'm late to the party) but I love the idea of that size of book. Perfect for list making!

I LOVE lists- that way I don't have to remember everything. I tend to forget. Your notebook cover looked so pretty, you may have inspired me to snazzy mine up too. Jane in MO
