Contact Book

Processed with VSCOcam

I found the perfect little notebook to use as a contact book. This type of notebooks usually come with red accents but I found one with light blue accents and I love it. I just added some stickers to the front to personalize it a bit. Right now all I need is a section for birthdays and other important dates, a section for actual contact information (I’ll come back to this) and a section for an alphabetic directory.

2014-02-13 12.10.52The first section is for important dates. I decided that I needed one page for each month. All I did was choose six different washi tapes and added a small strip at the top of each page and wrote the month on top.

I’m so happy that I finished this goal on my 101 in 1001 list.

Lately I’ve been a scatterbrain

I’m one of those persons that always appear prepared for pretty much everything. I never show up late, my calendar is always updated and I pay close attention to detail.

But, lately I’ve found that I’ve become much more of a scatterbrain and I hate that (I don’t hate everyone who is scatterbrained, it’s just not how I see my self).

I’ve spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out what is different, and I think I come to a conclusion. In the past few months I haven’t used my calendar as much and I’ve also stopped putting Important documents into their folders, so I need to go back to doing that. I wasn’t completely satisfied with neither my calendar nor my filing system before so I think this is a good excuse to revisit both and try to find something that suits me better.

I will post my progress as the projects move along.
