New Year....New Card Journal!

One of my many organization flaws begins with business cards.  Every creative event...purchase of handmade....or meeting of a fellow artisan, I collect their business card or some form of future contact.  These business cards, scraps of paper, receipts, brochures begin to stack up.  For many years I threw them in a box...not good.  Upon entry into the box....I never could find anything.  It became just a box of paper.  Useless.

So, I tried something new.  A simple little blank journal (I just made one with my combine machine) became the new form of organization.  

The book filled and filled and filled.  Now, it has no more space.

The best worked!  I simply staple any form of communication on a page, pen a little note of reference if need be, date and point of contact.  

No deep rooted forms of organization...old school stapler and pen.

New journal.  

Saw this photo of the "Aunt Bea-ish" type lady and loved it.

She goes with me everywhere....always organized.

Many blank pages to fill for 2012....can't wait.
