Note it Down

Briefly mentioned in my previous post here,

Let me formally introduce you to my notebook-cum-planner-cum-diary-cum-life!

Picture 001

Here are the pages with the New Balance Feral Collection adverts… cut and modified to fit the pages. Doesn’t exactly leave a lot of space for notes but I don’t care. It looks pretty (:

So here is how it starts off…

Picture 004

The notebook has completely blank pages then I measure and mark the corners of the boxes for each day. The boxes are then free-handed… cos rulers are so le-chey (cumbersome).

Days and dates are added accordingly. And depending on what ‘speaks to me‘ from various magazines, I cut them out and add them to the book for variety and colour! (:

Everyone needs a bit of colour in their life.

Every two pages/weeks or so, I insert a “break” and dedicate a bit more space to things that deserve the space. hahas.

And the rest of the space is kept for meetings, assignment due dates, to-do lists, appointments, etc.

You like?

Little, somewhat time-consuming (these things don’t magically cut themselves and become self-adhesive on its own y’knw!) things make me happy. (:

oooh, nice : D where did you get it from? (show the cover? but i think you’ve probably covered it with pretty cut outs haha) i’m always on the hunt for blank RING notebooks instead of lined ones but they’re usually expensive or ugly haha

hey jia, the notebook was a free gift from a school event. the beauty is you can decorate any book so even if it start ugly, you can decorate it till it looks pretty hahas. (:

Thanks for your post. I used to do this when I was younger but lost the passion to do so. Thanks for relighting my fire to start to do this again! Cheers!

I totally get where you’re coming from, my scrapbook and collage work always makes me smile. The diary is astounding, I would just love to sit down for a few hours and give every page my full attention. Very inspiring stuff.
