Idea Catcher

I thought I would show you Volume 1 and 2 of my favourite book - : They are well worn hardcover exercise books and are not pretty or tidy - but they are where I catch my ideas. I scribble thoughts, draw pictures and glue in clippings, etc. I love looking through them and seeing which ideas have come to pass, which of them probably never will and many I am still hoping to put into action. I know at least one other person felt the same way as me -
"Ideas are elusive, slippery things.
Best to keep a pad of paper
and a pencil at your bedside,
so you can stab them during the night
before they get away."

Love your notebooks! I have a terrible habit of scribbling things all over the place. This is a good way to contain thoughts and ideas!

Just like anonymous said before me... you have inspired me to take out my own (overfilled) book and jot down some ideas and inspirations. THANK YOU for that! I might even post a photo of my book sometime. Your whole blog is a LOVELY inspiration!
