There are some things that I like to use or to do now and then, but I'm never able to keep up with those. I already know that about myself for years about an agenda and a diary, I like to do a diary and an agenda can be really handy, but I forget about it or just simply don't use it. Now there is also Project Life, I really like the idea, but I'm sure I won't keep up with it.
So I decided to combine all 3 of those and I'll use my Smash Book as an agenda, a diary and PL in one. To keep it easy for myself, there won't be any rules. If I like something to capture, I'll add it. If I need to remember something or if I have a little story to tell, I'll write it down. If friends or family feel the need to write something in it, that's fine too. And anything else I find on my way through the year will be added too. Let's see how this will work out :-)
There was just one thing that I needed to prepare. Because I'll use my Smash Book as an agenda too, I need to carry it with me. That got me thinking about all the fun pockets, clips, notepads and tapes by Smash Book that I have. I want to have these with me too, so I can use them right away when I want to. So I added all those things to the inside of the front and back cover.
This is what my Smash Book collection looked like before I started.
I haven't done anything yet with the cover on the outside. Not sure yet if I want to, because it probably will get damaged by carrying it with me all the time.
This is the front cover on the inside:
On the left I added 2 notepads, a pad with tags and the number brads with another small notepad.
On the right I added some pieces of tape and a large pocket that holds some small pockets.
This is the back cover on the inside:
On the left I added pieces of tape.
On the right I placed the clips on the pocket that was already in the cover. That pocket also holds more large pockets. Also added some more pieces of tape and a small pocket that holds some more clips.
Well, I think I'm ready to start the year 2013!
If you do a Smash Book too, please link me up in a comment, I would love to see other Smash Books!!
