For some reason, writing in a new book/journal/notebook/planner/whatever really freaks me out. I guess I'm scared that I'm going to "ruin" the pretty book. What if I mess up & spell something wrong or my writing just looks bad... ha. I don't know why it scares me so much, I mean I'm going to be the only one looking at it... right? But I'm sure I'm not alone.
Anyway, for Easter my Mom got me this planner. (Yeah, she totally still gets us things for Easter. She said she will forever & I'm totally cool with that! My Mom is the best gift giver ever. She also got me these sheep for Easter:
But anyway, back to the planner part of the story.)
This planner is pretty cool, you can start it whenever. Since I got it in the middle of the month (or whenever Easter was. I'm bad with dates, ha.) I'm going to wait until May 1st to start it. I'm planning on using it for getting myself & my blog more organized. Putting down blog post ideas & blog sponsors and stuff like that. It' just so pretty that I don't want to wreck it, ha! I was reading Amy Tangerine's blog a while ago and she was blogging about starting a new notebook. I loved what she wrote on the second page of her book & I asked if I could use that for the start of my notebooks. (Also I just noticed she mentioned I should give Squirt a kiss from her two cute dogs, ahh! Love it! Haha!)
Such a great idea & once you write something on that first page (or in Amy's case, the second), it's just so much easier to continue using your notebook. Do you guys get scared to start a new notebook or journal?
