New Years Resolution

I have quite a few resolutions for this year and my main one is to be more organised, so I was very happy to see this on one of the blogs I follow {capture the moment}, you can find it here, it is a birthday organisation book, I have altered mine slightly because I didn't have any envelopes the right size, I also binding mine with my bind it all and added tabs so I can get to the months quickly, the flourish is from my new toy The slice, which I think you will be seeing quite a bit of this year :)


Here is the inside of the book, you can see I have used A5 envelopes, I will add all the addresses on the front of the A5 envelope so I birthdays and addresses all in the same place, all I need to do now is add the birthdays in and make some cards :)


Oh it is nice to be back, thank you for looking :)

Hi hunny, this is gorgeous, just what you need to get organized. I am planning on making something very similar, but not just yet as i have to move first. Im moved from my craft room out into the conservatory. Not out of choice i might add! but my son needs a bedroom of his own, so needs must! waiting for the new bookshelves to arrive next week, then i can start re-arranging things. I have so much sorting out to do im really not looking forward to that! hope you manage to get organized this year, thats my plan too! well happy crafting hun. Hugs for now Linda x
