Where did my memory go?

If I want to remember something I HAVE to write it down. This never really used to be a problem until the last few years. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older or that I have two kids, I really don't know. I do know that I have to write a daily "to do" list and if I don't I end up standing in the kitchen trying to remember what in the world I was planning on doing next. The same goes for scrapbooking ideas. I'll get what I think is a great idea, one that I couldn't possibly forget. Then the time comes to go work on something and that idea is long gone.

To help me remember those things, I made these little mini journals to carry with me.

They took only about 30 minutes to make! Each one also has a little pocket on the inside cover for memorabilia that I might want to keep.

So now I don't have an excuse if I forget something! :)

Hi! I just wanted to stop by and say that I'm a huge fan of your scrapbooking! I've probably scraplifted every layout of yours ever published in CK - thank you for all the inspiration! :o) Love the mini journals, by the way :o)

It's the kids. I am a firm believer that you lose tons of brain cells each time you have a baby. LOL!

Love the little books:)

I'm forgetful by nature, so one of these would be perfect. and this gives me an idea!

SO Cute! I have one of these that I write down all my paints/glimmermist/idea books/ink refills etc and I also write what my mom has so we don't buy double to often. This way I can know at a glance what i have and need to get. Because I never remember either especially when my little guys are whining profusely about not wanting to shop at a "mommy store!" (Which is any craft/scrap store!)

Oh that's a great idea! I don't know how many times I've bought double of something! :)
