I had the best time making these mini journals from cards I have collected over the years but have never used. I buy cards because I like the art, not because I need cards, so as you can imagine, I have a ton of them. :)
I was reading the last few chapters of The Creative Entrepreneur this weekend and she had a fabulous idea to make mini journals with your favorite cards as covers for a place to record your daily thoughts, plans, and dreams. The exercise keeps you connected to your ideas and also creates a wonderful record of your year all packaged in your favorite art!
I used white and yellow construction paper for the pages, folded them in half into a booklet and stapled them into the cards.
Then I made a calendar page for each month and glued it into the inside cover of each card.
I have already started planning for new product ideas, trips and classes for 2009.
I have two months in a card box I redecorated sitting on my desk for everyday use and the other 10 in a little bookcase for storage and inspiration.
I love making spaces to allow myself to create new ideas. I am so excited for 2009!
What fun things do you have planned for 2009? I would love to hear all about it!
