Last Monday I posted about how I wanted to start keeping an idea notebook. This has always been difficult for me but I've made progress this week. I now have a notebook and I have actually started using it!
I decided on a basic spiral bound notebook. The pages are perforated so if I wanted to transfer them to a binder later on I can. I bought it at Target and I'm pretty sure you can these at any office supply store. I like this one because it also has some pockets which is nice for magazine clippings.
Several of my readers sent me wonderful ideas on how to use an idea notebook. Samantha sent me so many great tips and she put them together in a blog post so be sure to check it out. She is an expert on the subject! There are a few other fabulous comments on my original post that you might find useful as well.
One thing I have had to try and train myself on is to not turn the idea notebook into a "to do" list. This is very tempting for me but I am really trying to focus on making this a place for creative ideas.
