I ran across this idea on At Random, I followed her links to Kapachino’s original post:
Because I’m suuuper original I’m calling it the Book of Lists because that is essentially what it will be. Just get yourself a book – make a minibook out of chipboard and binder rings like I did or grab a blank journal, a spiral notebook, scrapbook, anything of the sort – make sure it has some empty pages, and you’re ready to go.
Every month there will be a topic for a list, and the object is to craft it on a blank page, take a photo of your list, then blog it. You can get elaborate scrapbook-style, or even jot it down with your favorite pen. If you want, you don’t even have to make a book and you can just blog about the list topic (even though then it’s not really a book of lists, but that’s cool). My style is somewhere in the middle.
I just absolutely love this idea. I’m a crafter. I love lists. Why not combine the two into a new project? Sounds like the perfect plan for me. Unfortunately I didn’t get to the posts until today… The holidays have been rough on my blog reading. At any rate, I’m jumping in. I have a ton of journals and notebooks lying around the office. I grabbed one, personalized it and started on my journey. Here’s the notebook:
I chose a simple composition notebook with some pretty stripes. Then I dove into my crafting supplies for some great stickers to add a title. Simple but with a bit of flare, very me…
And now on to December’s list: wish list…
I didn’t go overboard with stuff, but I just made a simple list of 17 things I am wishing for right now. Some are creature comforts and some are more life related. I think this sums me up nicely.
Next month: We’ll be posting on January 7 and the topic is “looking forward.” That could mean what you’re looking forward to, your goals for the year, or however else you interpret it.
