We have been out of town for several days searching for a place to live. Because I am an organized person, I wanted this move to be organized. Therefore, I present my moving book.
I took a junk journal that had been lying around. I have two more that are identical, it was part of some box set I just had to have for Christmas a few years ago. There are no markings on the book so I don't even know/remember what brand it is. The cover got icky on this one, so I thought I would use it for our moving book. The index cards are there just to show you how I made the tabs along the side. These are plain Mead bookmark index cards bought at office max. They have muted yellow, green, blue and red edges and the back is a solid color. I also have used these to take notes on and have taped them directly into the notebook.
The notebook paper is thin. You can see that I wrote with a pen on the previous side and it shows through easily. I know I will never use these as a journal now because of the paper, but I will keep them around for a random project or two.
The pens are the new Color-Pencil-Like Frixions. They are erasable and erase much much better than the original set of blue/black/red I bought last fall. I think this type wins hands down compared to the non color pencil type.
The yellow is light. I think the pictures make it look darker than it really is. With both colors you can see that the darker colors are only because I went over the lines several times. Both erase well. Much better than I expected them too. I also have this pen in gray and I like it just as much as these two.
