eleneariel: (art in the everyday)

In my personal experience, the world can be divided into two groups of people:

1. Those who look at my clipboard and find it interesting or helpful (or at least in some way understandable)

2. Those who do the same and say in genuine confusion, "You know you could just buy a day planner, right?"




Mechanics first: plain small clipboard ($2.50 at Wal-Mart), covered first in tissue paper (to create texture), then torn bits of an art book, then painted, then sealed with shellac. Sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 paper cut in half fit perfectly (I use blank-on-one-side paper that's headed to the recycle bin).

You who have known me for awhile know that I'm reliant on lists. Not kidding: they keep me sane. Each day has a page, and I can jot down note and reminders as I think of them. Towards the back are sheets for shopping lists, future travel plans, even movies I want to see/music to buy/books to find.

Each evening I look over and add to the following day's page. It starts out as a neat list of things to do, but by the end of the day it will be a mess of scrawled notes, crossed out (I hope!) tasks, reminders, and notes in RED for the really important bits.



And to all those who have suggested a day planner: my clipboard is endlessly reusable, frugal, expandable, earth-friendly, flexible and able to adapt to my changing life, AND has personality. Why would I WANT a day planner?

Haha, no. That was only mid-way through what turned out to be a fairly presentable-list sort of day. :D
