{Personalized Mini Notepads}

{Personalized Mini Notepads}

I can’t believe it…I’m back!  Thank you all for understanding that sometimes a gal just needs a bit of a blogging break now and then.  I was so fortunate to be able to spend the past two weeks with my little family to enjoy Christmas and New Year’s.  Being able to just spend time together was a fantastic and much needed break, but now I’m back and ready to start sharing with all of you again.

I love January for so many reasons.  It’s a fresh start on the year, it’s my birthday month, and it’s the time of year when I absolutely love to get organized.  One small way I always try to stay organized on a day to day basis is to carry a mini notepad with me anywhere I go.  I know in this day of iPhones that a lot of people don’t do the whole “pencil & paper” thing anymore, but I know I always will be a sucker for jotting down a nice old fashioned list!

While I was organizing my craft supplies {because I’ll be honest, it looked like a bomb went off in my office closet}, I found these cute little notepads that I had purchased this past summer at the Target Dollar Spot and some black glittery letter stickers.  Instant {and free–well kind of} project!


I simply added stickers to personalize the notepads so they felt a little more “me.”

On one, I just put the letter M for my first name…

I figured that I’d use this notepad to jot down quick lists for the grocery store or errands that I had to run that day.

And on the second, I added the word “ideas”…

This one will serve as my blog project idea notepad.  I don’t know about you, but I always get inspired to create while I’m out during the day {at the grocery store, sitting at a red light, you name it really}.  Having this little notepad will definitely help me to remember those great ideas that pop out at me!

  6. These are so super cute! I always a little pad of paper nearby to jot down notes, lists, etc. I think making it personalized adds a little bit of fun to a “chore”.

  7. Cute! I loveee the Target $1 spot. I def make lists on my iPhone, but when I have a lot of things going on I immediately go to pen & paper. Would love for you to link up at my Pin It Thursday party! http://www.sweetbellaroos.com/2013/01/03/pin-it-thursday-16/
