Why have a notebook?
-to collect all those thoughts in your mind you don't want to lose
-to capture memories
-to have something that's "your own"
-for a creative outlet (believe me...it's so freeing)
-because it's fun
How do I create my own?
-find a notebook of any kind (this is a college-ruled spiral notebook...very cheap!)
-find pictures and magazine clippings that scream "you"
-place strategically, randomly, or however your heart desires on your notebook with glue
-cover with packaging tape, clear laminating material, or even Mod Podge
What should I put in my notebook?
-lists (your yearly events month by month, favorite baby names, favorite quotes, favorite bible verses, words you like, things people say, random thoughts, bests and worsts of your memories, blog post ideas, etc.)
-beginnings of stories (you don't have to finish them)
-things from nature
-prayers (it's so neat to go back and read prayers recorded and see how God has answered them in His time and way)
-anything you want....it's your notebook
Happy Friday and happy writing!
