So, no surprise that I have all kinds of pens and paper handy at all times. I think I've mentioned that I rough cut my draft copies into 4 pieces of paper and stash them in small baskets around the house. But sometimes I like to have something prettier and more convenient than a crooked piece of copy paper with typing on the back. Plus, right now I'm putting together a gift basket to be auctioned off at an upcoming writer's conference (the money is going to charity), and so I've been looking for cute or pretty notepads to stick in the basket along with all the books and other items. Here are some of the items I've been eyeing (all of these can be found on Amazon by clicking on the item).
Ones with magnetic clasps:
Ones with metal cases and pens (the pens lock the case closed)
Ones that made me blink (for several reasons). The zombie ones below must be collector items. They cost over $700 for a set of three. I don't think I can afford to write on those.
Sets that are meant as party favors
And ones that are probably meant as teacher giveaways (yes, that used to be me)
Then, there's the basic memo pad set
Of course, I could just get creative and make something. At least for me. The basket will need something more elegant or fun or pretty.
So...what do you carry with you when you need to jot something down?
Have a great day!
