2012 Resolution #1: Write

My #1 resolution for 2012 is to write. Not a lot. But at least a little something every day of the year, even if it's just one single thought I had in my head that day. I've been searching for a recycled notebook or journal to use for this, one that's small enough so I can travel with it, but big enough to last for the year. In my search I've found so many cool notebooks. My only problem is now I don't know which one to get. I like them all! Good thing I have a lot to say usually. I'll probably end up getting one smaller notebook version to have with me at all times, and one larger journal for home so that I have no excuse to not fulfill my resolution. If I had more time, I'd maybe even try and DIY one of them, using this online tutorial for Rescue Books from the Sketchbook Challenge website. But since I don't, I'll stick with the pre-made, ready-to-buy versions from other crafty and creative people. Here are a few of my favorites from Etsy:

Recycled game board notebooks from Recycle Moe - Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, Scrabble, Monoply. Also love the "wee" notebooks made out of game cards.


Creative notebook using old floppy disks from Piping Hot Papers.

Recycled Golden Books and other kids books at Recycled Arts.

Mixed paper journals and mini mail books at Bad Books.

Vintage library card mini notebook at Ivy Lane Designs.

For Keeps mixed paper journal at Lil Thoughts.

Flash card mixed paper notebook at The Everyday Life.

  1. I LOVE badbooks, some great illustrations too. I'm not too big on the books that have the wire binding, too commercial for my taste. K-Fai does this bookbinding, you should share this post with her. We'll have to play someday, I've got a small one started with a cheerios box, just need some gentle push to get me going on it again.
    Let's PLAY
