Countless times these past few weeks, an idea would pop into my mind of a project or craft that I wanted to do. Of course I would immediately store that idea into the I Know I Will Not Forget Such A Cool Idea But Inevitably Do portion of my mommy brain.
That storage area of my brain is undoubtably streaming with forgotten creative wonders yet to be unleashed. In other words, I needed something to help me get my mind under control. I needed a central place to write it down that was just my own.
I grabbed a well used old book and cut off the front and back covers. I glued on some scrapbook paper to the inside of the covers to
hide a picture of a random cat that was there pretty them up. I decided to add two tabbed pages just in case I wanted some separation to my ideas. I then cut some printer paper to size and bound it all together with my Bind-It-All. It needed a little something extra so I cut out a vintage vinyl key for the front cover. I decided to go with a key because this journal was going to be the “Key to My Sanity”. So far it has been super helpful and I have only had one page colored on by my youngest daughter. Hopefully it will stay that way!
