I am forgetful. I believe that I have a disease called CRS (Can't Remember Sh*t)... hehehehe. It gets worse and worse with each passing year. I must write my thought down the very moment that it comes to me or it will sink into that deep dark hole and be lost forever. I even keep a memo pad in my handbag at all times. They're just small 4 X 6" memo pads, but they have saved me more than once. Now, an off-the-rack notepad cover is usually very blah (a.k.a. ugly). In order to make it a little more special, I have created interchangeable covers for them. I change them out whenever the mood strikes me. Here are the three that I have been using.
I own a set of individual alphabet rubber stamps which I like and frequently use. I have trouble lining each alphabet up when spelling words and they usually turn out all wonky. I know that they sell all kinds of devices to help you with stamp alignment but I was looking for a simple and easy alternative.
I purchased this rubber stamp from Stampdango. It is a very basic alphabet stamp and each letter is only 1/4" high. The stamp is based on the old-fashioned stamps that merchant's use to stamp their received and paid dates onto their invoices. This stamp allows you space for up to one 10-letter word or a couple of short words by turning each of the belts to your desired alphabet. I find it much easier to use than the individual stamps. The downside of this stamp is that the text is pretty generic looking and each of the alphabet's are quite small. I guess you can't always have everything, right? LOL
I have spent the last several days in front of the computer making airline and hotel reservations, ordering winter wear and accessories, and doing research about touring Washington DC. This should be a very interesting trip, not only because we'll be in our nations capitol, but because this will be the first time that we will have to deal with 10 days of freezing temperatures. I'm excited and can't wait to see how this will play out for us.
All you snow bunnies out there, I know your weather has turned frightfully cold over the last day or so and that you are probably freezing your patooties off. Please stay safe and try to keep warm.
Have a good day!
