The Notebook Project - April update

Back in February, I launched a little personal project; The Notebook Project. You can read all about it in my launch post, if you're wondering what the heck I'm on about! I promised an update in April, to report back on how I'm getting on - and I'm pleased to say that although I worried I wouldn't have anything to show, it has been going quite well!

A large part of the start of the project has been purely organisational - assigning notebook uses, arranging where best to keep the notebooks in order to remember to use them, making sure there's always a pen nearby etc etc! Such little things I never thought about before, but which have really helped me keep on track.

In my last post I listed the uses I had in mind for the notebooks, and I have to admit some of those have changed since. Also, I am still not using all of my unused notebooks yet, but have made a solid start on at least 3!

First up, is the book that has developed the world's longest title, and a partner!

The Recipe Book that has warped into a Scrapbook For Recipes which later get upgraded to The Recipe Box if successful and yummy! 



I found I was collecting a lot of recipes from magazines and stowing them away, but never looking through them, copying them out or even cooking them! So, to sort this out, I have created a recipe scrapbook from my original designated Recipe Book, and aim to work steadily through the ones I haven't tried. Any emerging favourites will get upgraded to a recipe card, to live in a gorgeous new recipe box I found!

So far, I only have one "upgraded" recipe, but hopefully it will be much more full in time for the next update.

The Recipe Box!

Secondly, I'm making good progress on my Book Notes notebook. The tiny size of this notebook means I can slip it inside my kindle case or even use it as a bookmark, so it's always ready for scribbles as I'm page turning!

Last up for this update is my beautiful mint green notebook, which I shared in my Kikki.K Haul post. I have used it for every-day Lists and Scribbles so far, and a bit of a work journal. It's perfect for stashing away in my bag, and the cover provides a great space for keeping sticky notes and decorations!
Perfect for all my bits and pieces!Organised, day to day.

Ill be back with another update in July!
