where the ideas happen
The week between Christmas and New Year's is just the best. It's a time when I feel relaxed and rested, as well as productive. What a wonderful combination!
This week I've been looking at my sketchbook/journals/idea books and taking note of the ideas waiting to happen. I've been thinking about how to take those ideas and make them better and ready to use. I've been making sure that I don't miss something before I start the new books that are waiting for me.
This week, I'm getting ready to put pencil to new paper. The planner can be started any time, but I've been waiting until 2012. The blank books came home with me from London (they're from Paperchase), but I've been waiting until 2012. Oh, the waiting!
For several years I've been drawing and doodling in lined composition books, and I've been fine with that. But now, this year, I have these lovely kraft paper pages just waiting for me and my pencil. Isn't it glorious?!
Clearly, I'm a little over-excited about something as simple as a blank book. But this is where the ideas happen. On blank pages waiting to be filled. Well, maybe in my head a little. And maybe in the things that surround me. But the pages hold the ideas, and that makes them happen.
I'm embracing this week, recharging for a new year filled with new ideas!
ps: there's still space for new sponsors! full details here.
