A "SITE" TO REMEMBER

Good evening, friends.  Hope all's well!

Wow!!!  Now I think I know why I was having Google issues yesterday!!!  I just noticed all the new updated blog changes -- they've even added video!!!  I'll have to check out what else is new, but first I want to share with you.

What a day I had today!!!  First I had to go to therapy, then grocery shopping, and I ended up with taking Buster to be groomed.  It's been a long day!!!  I was hoping to get home to post earlier than this; unfortunately, things don't always go as planned.  The downside is I have to go back to therapy tomorrow and more errands to run -- a woman's work is never done!!!

Anyway, I have question for you -- while I was unable to craft due to my hand, do you remember I mentioned to you all how I'd been getting in some blog-hopping, and had gotten several inspirations and ideas from some of the blogs I visited?  Do you also remember my mentioning my hubby telling me to write those sites down so I'd remember them?  Well, of course I didn't!!!  Now, I can't remember where I went and/or what I saw, and all the ideas I had seem to have gotten lost in my head somewhere.  Anyway, that's what brought me to this little project I want to share with you today.  I am so frustrated with this continuously happening to me that I decided to do something about it.  What? Well, I'm going to tell you.

I made this little journal I'm calling "A Site To Remember" (got that -- "Site"?  Catchy, huh?), and I'm putting it next to my computer so that everytime I visit a site or have an inspiring idea I can write it down.  Of course, I wanted it to be a little fancy for my desk.  Here it is,and this is the cover of the journal:



This is the closure flap opened by using the ribbon pull:


This is the cover of the book opened revealing the inside of the journal with the writing pad:


And this is the flap open to the writing pad:


Isn't it cute?!!!   And, I did all the writing in the Jasmine cart using my cricut glitter pens!!!  Although I've had them for a while, this is the first time I've used them!!!  I must say, I think I'm going to now be addicted to them.  The paper is from K&Company.  I hand cut and made the journal, and the pad is from the Dollar Store.  The embellishment  on the  closure flap is one of Tim Holtz's fragments which I backed with a decorative piece of the paper.

Well, I certainly hope you like it!!!  Now I'm off to do some blog visiting and commenting.  So many things to do, people to see, etc.!!!

I'll be seeing you!!!

What a great idea Audrey and a great journal!! I never thought to use Jasmine with gel pens ~ those letters are so delicate that I rarely cut them out unless they are 3" or larger. Of course, purple is my favorite color too!!

This is a great idea! I save my favorite sites to my computer but if it would crash, I would be lost. This is a great way to save them and it is so beautiful!

I LOVE this idea. All of my sites to remember are in my fav's on my computer, so if anything ever happens I don't know what I would do. I am definately going to try this idea out.
Thanks so much for sharing

Cute reminder log.
what I do - is I create an excel spreadsheet of the links to the sites I like... also I follow the blogs and use my blogger dashboard and click on them every day and comment.
Wish more folks would do that!

Hi Audrey!

Glad to hear you're feeling better! I think your blog journal is a fabulous idea! In fact, if I think I'm going to attempt something like this because I'm ALWAYS losing track of the blogs/websites I enjoy!

Thanks for sharing your inspirations with us!!!
