Day 363 of Project 365: Turning the page.

Tonight I turned the page to peek at 2017. It looks so clean and new from here. I am sure 2016 looked much the same, last December 28th. Is it foolish to look forward to a symbolic fresh start? Are these merely the first few hours of our darker days? via Instagram http://ift.tt/2iHenLA Writing from:Continue reading “Day 363 of Project 365: Turning the page.”

Day 294 of Project 365: Unicorns and villains.

After a long, exhausting day, I was delighted to return home to fun things in the post. This wee picture of Black Jack Randall in “Outlander” was the one that gave me a much-needed laugh, though. My sharky friend knows that my favorite part of that series is Tobias Menzies’ portrayal of Frank Randall /Continue reading “Day 294 of Project 365: Unicorns and villains.”

Day 277 of Project 365: Journal flourishes.

I’m experimenting with some additions to my Bullet Journal, some functional and some just for fun. Clockwise from the upper left: a rubber stamp to add some flair in a boring corner; a weekly list that I tipped in with washi tape; and a sticker from an ephemera set I found at Flax Art & DesignContinue reading “Day 277 of Project 365: Journal flourishes.”

Day 271 of Project 365: Book Darts.

As part of an ongoing attempt to wrangle my ever-growing task list, I have been searching for a simple way to earmark important tasks that may get buried in the Bullet Journal format. Then I remembered Book Darts, little pieces of paper-thin metal that slide onto the edge of a page. Every morning, I slip a Book Dart next to each of theContinue reading “Day 271 of Project 365: Book Darts.”

Day 231 of Project 365: Notebook time.

Every Thursday, I share a productivity tip with my work team. Today I shared the Bullet Journal system in honor of its third birthday. And I had Goulet Pens‘ refills for my own Bullet Journal waiting for me when I got home tonight. Time to play with my notebook! Writing from: my sticky study. Listening to:Continue reading “Day 231 of Project 365: Notebook time.”

Days 140-152 of Project 365: Spring chaos.

Hello again, patient Project 365 friends! The end of May zipped so quickly that I fell far behind with these posts. I kept snapping every day, though, so I have something to show for my long absence. Down the leftmost column: a mass of shopping carts at IKEA; fun blurbs that Lonesome’s Pizza tucks insideContinue reading “Days 140-152 of Project 365: Spring chaos.”

Day 134 of Project 365: Four-list method. 

Time to refocus on my health, now that the parental visit is over and I managed to catch a cold. I don’t do diets. Not being able to eat gluten is enough of a restriction for me, and I think that non-medically-mandated diets can encourage problematic relationships with food. I do, however, fully support reasonableContinue reading “Day 134 of Project 365: Four-list method. “

Day 80 of Project 365: Mini-Me.

Sometime last year, I dreamed that my Midori Traveler’s Notebook suddenly hatched a smaller sibling, like my notebook’s Mini-Me. I chalked it up to my habit of reading too many stationery blogs, and left it at that. But this smaller version of my daily notebook kept resurfacing in my dreams. The two notebooks were a matched set, butContinue reading “Day 80 of Project 365: Mini-Me.”

Day 65 of Project 365: Notebook bits and bobs.

In the film adaptation of my life, my jaunty sidekick would be my notebook. It has always been my notebook, ever since I knew how to write in one. When I was still young and wanted to grow up to be a librarian / private investigator / Indiana Jones hybrid, I would catalog seemingly random details of the worldContinue reading “Day 65 of Project 365: Notebook bits and bobs.”
