There are a lot of things I want to do in 2010. Some of them are the daily things that keep me, my home and family running. Others are bigger items that involve creative and personal goals.
I decided that I needed one place where all of my goals, thoughts, to-do items could be written down to help keep myself on track. I'm sure I could have found a pre-made planner that would have worked, but really, I just need something simple. So I decided to put my own book together.All of the paper and embellishments came from the Scrapbook Circle January kit.
The book started with two pieces of chipboard that I trimmed to 5" X 9". I then covered the chipboard with paper and embellishments. The journal is filled with regular white 8.5" X 11" printer paper. Each paper was cut in half making the paper 4.25" X 5.5".I punched and bound the book with my bind-it-all. That little machine is so much fun to use! Now I'm organized and ready to accomplish much.I feel like so much more will be accomplished by just writing things down and believing in myself. This journal will be the perfect place for me to record things I want to accomplish this year.
