When I bought my National Geographic a month ago, it came with this huge double sided map of the world that I had no idea what to do with. Fast forward to a few nights ago as I was getting some organizing done and realized that I had a map plus some plain covered notebooks I had picked up recently. Not wanting to throw out the map, I figured I might as well use it to decorate the covers of those notebooks I just happened to have. So, that’s what I did. (Which really shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering how much we all know I love maps.)
I even managed to make the front of each notebook a separate continent, with Europe, Africa and North America gracing a cover each, something I hadn’t really planned on to begin with, but was a nice surprise after I realized what had happened. I also am planning on using this scheme to save some money this year and all I could find to use as a container was an old Cola Cao container, which is an unfortunate yellow/red plastic combo. So I figured, since I was at it, why not cover that up with the Australia bit of the map that was left, hoping that having that travel theme might be what I need to not take money from it as the year progresses. We’ll see how that idea holds up.
Things I’m Loving:
+ Interesting look at the help that keeps life looking glamourous – (In art form, no less.)
+ A Beautiful Mess starts a book club – (If you’re interested.)
+ 31 Breakfast Recipes – (GO. NOW. If you even just LIKE breakfast food, this is PERFECT.)
+ Loot Crate – (Geeky things in the mail for all my fellow geeks.)
