My project this week is a super cute to-do notebook that you can whip up in no time at all. And who knows?? If you have something fun to keep track of your lists and projects, you might actually try to get those lists done. Plus, if your house is like mine and notebooks often disappear from my desk/purse/office and come back full of all types of doodles and drawings, maybe this notebook will be so obviously "Mom's" that nobody will take it from you. (At least I know my husband won't be taking it, too flowery and cutesy for him!) In any case, get yourself a nice, new notebook that is just for you (this one is just from WalMart) and cover and embellish to your heart's content!
My notebook is covered with Basic Grey Sugar Rush (on sale this week!) -- I love the fun, bright colors in this collection. I used Peanut Brittle for the front cover and one of the pockets, Candy Hearts for another pocket and the green back side of Candy Hearts for the back cover. I distressed all the papers with Tim Holtz distressing ink in Peeled Paint. Then I raided my ribbon scraps and tied a bunch of matching ribbons through the spiral binding. I added a couple of journaling cards to the front and used rub-on letters for the title "To Do." A few Prima flowers completes the front. (Check out the My Mind's Eye rub on alphabets on sale!)
Inside I used more paper just to cover the front of the pockets (handy for slipping in notes, appointments, receipts, etc. but they can still look cute!) and added rub-on titles there too. All finished in no time.
So celebrate Spring this week, no matter where you live, and treat yourself to your very own cute "To Do" notebook and then go tackle those Spring Cleaning projects. Happy Spring everyone! And be sure to check back tomorrow for more Spring inspiration to keep that Spring Fever high!
