I wasn’t going to do a blog post – but I figured why not? You see I recently spent the afternoon avoiding real work (ha!) and creating a fancy little notepad for myself for a conference this weekend.
What I needed was paper on a sturdy surface to write notes during a conference. I don’t know how many notes or what I’ll write – or if I will be inspired to write at all. So I didn’t want to commit to a new notebook just for this only to end up being annoyed that 1/10th of it was used and not want to keep filling it up. I also thought that a small notebook would be flimsy and hard to write on my lap.
So I thought: clipboard! I couldn’t find mine but in the search I unearthed a 5x7ish D-ring option.
I added papers, some stickers and fun (because why not?!?!) and got to work. Here is a YouTube video where I explain why I am using (or not using) what I have on this.
Here is the cover/front:
I am excited that there is a “planner con” in San Francisco this weekend so very close to my home – and the price was really reasonable for a craft convention with such high quality speakers too. I will be sure to report back with how it went – and if my notebook worked well or not.
I mentioned in my video another video on how-to for a planner charm similar to mine. Here is a link to that video.
I really want to get better at how to write down plans, and make them HAPPEN, so I have lots of high hopes for the weekend. If you’re coming be sure to track me down – because I have little goodies to share!
For now I’m off to double check my bag. I really am just bringing some pens + this notepad! I really do love that I had some fun decorating something for a temporary use – and that I have a plan to transfer the “keeper” notes. I’ll share more about that (and which art journal they go into!) when I return.
Have a great weekend!
