Les Petits Details: To do book


They say that you have ten minutes to capture an idea before it is gone from your memory forever. I am sure that all of us have experienced that lightning bolt flash of creativity that we were positive we would never forget. If you are anything like me, if you don't jot it down quickly it is gone forever.

I make these tiny little books to write down tasks. I always keep it on my desk when I am working, by my side when I am meeting, and in my purse at all other times. I also make blank ones to write down ideas that come to mind. 

I keep all of my old idea books in a closet, inside a box. My husband Greg is actually working on an idea data base to house all of our ideas so that they can be categorized and filed away perfectly for a later date. All of this may sound nerdy, but I believe that one great idea can change the world.
I am contemplating opening up an Etsy store so I can sell some of my art, paper products and stationary.
