Last December when I gocco-printed my christmas cards, I also printed myself a moleskine cahier. Not surprisingly, I'm a moleskine addict. I get a little thrill each winter when it's time to buy next year's diary. Those clean, unblemished pages just waiting to be filled with birthdays, to-dos, important things, the mundane everyday, and the joy of time off.
The idea of my christmas cahier was to keep track of all things festive, from inspiration and ideas, lists, to-dos and to-makes. And to keep me on track and organised. The thing is, I couldn't remember where I'd put it for safe keeping from last year. Over the last few weeks I've searched and searched...and today I found it in the most unexpected place.
So now I can focus on all that needs to be done. Lists are being made, and slowly each item will be checked off. Much knitting needs to be finished (and in some cases started and finished) and cards need to be made (card stock arriving tomorrow I think!). And in order to make cards, I need to do a paper-cut. I've had a few ideas bobbing around in my head, but so far they've got no further than that. And then there will be the joy of present wrapping. One of my favourite parts of the whole process.
So, a few lists and a lot of focus is a step forward, isn't it?
