Today I have a simple and fun little project I whipped up. I purchased these cute little notebooks at a good price during a back to school sale. I altered them using the We R Memory Keepers Tiffany's collection and some Hard Coat Mod Podge. They are the perfect size to fit in my purse confortably and still be big enough to be very useful.
I don't have a smart phone or a gps, or a palm pilot, etc. So, I do all my stuff the old fashioned way. I thought it would be nice to have a notebook for directions. There are some parks, friends houses, etc. that I have a general idea how to get to, but need reminders of some of the street names and such, so I thought I'd just put everything in this Directions Notebook.
The other one is just for helping me make lists, which I am positively obsessed with. It might also end up with to do lists at times, but Shopping List looked so cute on the front of it I decided to call it that, even though it might not always be accurate! *LOL*
If you are cooler than me and have all that fun technology you can always alter these for your kids in school or something. Actually, I think it could make kind of a funny gift to give a Directions Notepad with a map to someone who wants a GPS system, assuming they have a good sense of humor of course ;) You could package it up in a box and write "Low Tech GPS" or "Poor Man's GPS" or something silly like that.
