Pimping Out My Daytimer
I had a dull black daytimer until Academy Awards Night. Every year, it's the same question: what to do on the big night between looking at the dresses (and OK, Colin Firth). I also enjoy the speeches about how the stars owe their fame to their moms. Yeah, I'm a sucker.
This year, Hannah Andersson of iHanna inspired me to pimp out my daytimer with this post.
With Daytimer, papers, stickers and paint in hand (and a box of tissues for the mommy speeches), I had myself a nice night.
I stuck a bit of tape to a paperclip to mark the current week but look at this cute bow-topped paperclip from How About Orange. You could definitely riff on that idea. More paint will be added to the front of the book at some point and the fake leather took the acrylics very well after a couple of coats of gesso.
The good news is that I like using my Daytimer more now. I took out all of the pages that never get used, such as the address book section and added sections with fun tabs :) that are useful, such as the ephemeral ideas that float through my mind on blogging and workshop ideas. It is much more fun to use and makes sense.
Tomorrow, I promise to post about Italy. This just seemed like a good Sunday night, back-to-work tomorrow post. It's a darn good weekend project and now you have all week to think about it.
