IDEA LOG




The other day I received a very cool notebook in the mail from Knock Knock, the witty papergoods/stationery/gift company. This was perfect for me, as I sometimes drift toward that occupational hazard of an artist - too many wandering thoughts and inspirations, too little time to do it all. This notebook breaks it all down for me and helps me corral my many scattered thoughts and random inspirations. One of the coolest things about it is the little elastic loop on the front where you can trap that errant pencil or pen without having to slide it down the spine of the binder. I hate doing that - as the pen always slips out OR paralyzes the notebook so that you cannot turn the pages! You can find this or the perfect notebook for yourself here

I hope that all of you wonderful readers can enjoy a restful and rejuvenating weekend - I know that I plan to!

I really like their product line. Now, if they could design one of these that would work in the shower - that's where all my thinkin' happens, but there's no place to write anything down! -diane

How did you know that I have a fondness for spiraling out of control but keeping my ideas in a note book helps! Cute Anne, now you enjoy your weekend.

Like you my sometimes uh..very overactive imagination can get the best of me and wander in many directions at the same time.....so I have to write EVERYTHING down or else I am in big trouble. I am known amongst those who know me as the queen of lists...have them everywhere. Hey, it keeps us in check, right?

I definitely need one...I've been jotting down my ideas on various bits of paper over the years and they always end up...who knows where!?...this would be perfect!
Have a great w/end Anne :))

Oh boy Anne!

Cool idea,

I need to get my mitts on one of these!

Thank you so much for my gorgeous Suzani settee print that arrived on Thursday, when I opened it, my heart skipped a beat - it's perfection overload. Of you know I'll be back for more to add to my growing collection.
