Trying to keep up with tracking my projects.
But mostly I felt like doing some binding. Apparently when I put the numero journals up, I hadn't finished the last bits. Maybe waiting for later inspiration or direction. Now I'm glad I did because I reordered some pages.
Numero dos will be for creative projects in general. Because the wind blows in many directions. I had mostly constructed the journal, and also had some pictures printed already. This was simple 5-hole pamphlet stitch. As it happens I had all the supplies needed. What do you know.
When trying to bind, it happens that the needle can go wayward. This particular journal has thick pages, mostly, so it was harder muscling the needle through. No worries. I just bent the book back and took it a few pages at time.
Then I immediately started filling it up. I will have to dig around a bit for the pertinent information about each project. I keep thinking I'm going to track these things, like yarn type and pattern (in this case), but I don't. Or haven't. Maybe the tide is turning. I figure I'll dig up some of it, and let it go at that.
My natural inclination is to think - whoops, if I didn't start out all organized, it's too late now. But of course that's ridiculous. And my second inclination is to feel like I need to back track. The insanity of that thought makes me giggle, but it's there in my head. Like I would be able to document all past projects. I have to let those silly thoughts go, and I can, once I realize what I have rattling inside my head.
I don't have a lot of good ideas, but this was one of them. I love the journals themselves, and the photos and being able to flip through what I've been doing.
Hope you try out an idea. Let me know if you have a good one.
