A Tutorial....of sorts
I didn't want anything fancy. I just needed something I could write "The Plan" in. I found this Composition Book and I chose it for the size. I liked both the 7.5" x 9.75" size, as well as, the number of pages size. It has 100 pages (counting front and back = 200). I also like that the pages are stitched in as I thought it might accommodate me adding stuff.
The inside front has good information and I don't plan to cover that up. The inside back cover has conversion tables that I like. However, I will probably cover up the multiplication table. Don't think I will need to refer to that.
The first thing I found out was the paper doesn't really like wet media. I have resorted to using masking tape to scatter my ART through the book. I found an online source for a blank Calendar Template
that you can download. You can resize them and type in information before printing. I tried to use a glue stick with this September calendar and it wrinkled. I'm OK with it....I'm OK with it....I'm OK with it............................. see this doesn't need to be perfect. Just a place to write down "The Plan". (but October will be perfect)
When adding the print, I left the top open to create a pocket. I actually like the way the masking tape looks and feels. I like that it is transparent and you can easily write on it too. I'm sure I will add other pockets as needed.
So, I have already started using my day planner. This is how I organize my shop listings. I need a visual to connect to the name of the item. Thumbnail prints work great. (It just quiets my brain) The glue stick worked fine with these small images. While editing the listing photos, I name them and write them here next to the thumbnail. This makes listing so much easier especially when you are listing 12 items at the same time. It is a nice record too.
Today my friend, Susan, stopped in with these little tabs she cut for me. That was on her "plan" for today. I will add them as needed. I'm all set with my day planner. It fits into my purse and I expect it to be full of plans. I expect it to keep me on target with all the things that I wish to do. That I day dream about doing. That I plan to do. That I need to do. That I don't want to do that I have to do. etc etc etc.
PS Isn't this picture great? Well, I took it with my repaired camera.
EXCEPT MY #$#*(*%&#($*#& blank-a-t-blank CAMERA IS NOT FIXED. Only the Macro setting will focus. It took a while for me to figure that out and I'm having to send it back.
PSS This little angel pendant is still available. ;0)
