As all of you know I have been in a year long process of emptying out our office in preparation for our adopted baby. What a monumental task it has been and still is! Pre-Little Bit we both had our own offices. Then when he hit the scene we started sharing an office. Now we have no office. All of those treasured things that I have squirreled away now need to leave or find a new home somewhere in the house. I have done a fair job of letting go of tons of stuff but there are some things that I cling to. One of those things is cards. I have tons of them. I adore cards. It means so much to me when someone gets me one that I never want to let it go.
One of my new favorite haunts is Pinterest. There are so many amazing ideas on the internet and Pinterest let's me organize them into boards as a visual reminder of projects and products I want to try out. Something I had never seen before my Pinterest addiction was a smash book. Basically what you do is take a little journal or composition book and add mementos to it.
I loved this idea and thought it would be a terrific way to consolidate my cards into visually appealing way. I broke out my scissors, Elmer's School Glue, and stole a composition book from Hubs. Here is the end result.
It was so much fun to do! I loved looking at my old cards and then designing a layout for them on the page. I think the next page I try will have some journaling on it. Have you ever heard of a smash book? Do you have a Pinterest addiction? What is the coolest thing you have ever found on Pinterest?
