Bowl of Candy in fancy wrapping paper
A bowl of candy on the table.

Mom got this candy from a visitor from Thailand recently, and the whole family dug in to enjoy it (except me, I didn’t much like the taste).

Candy paper to save
Though I didn’t eat much I saved a couple of the transparent and colorful candy wrapping papers and flattened them.

And then I did a collage in my present diary, the Moleskine notebook.

First diary collage
This is the first collage in a diary for me!

I usually just write, write and write on the pages of my diary. But now I made this cut and paste page in between all the writing. It was really fun, and the candy paper was great to use here – I’ll have to do more collages in this book before I finish it. Colour collage perhaps, I love those!

Another fun new thing I did recently was keeping my diary by my side when I was surfing on the internet. I had a nice pen and added some good quotes to my Moleskine diary, like this:

Quotes found on various sites

New method (for me) of filling a page, but great. I adore a good quote, and I’ve always collected them but not in my diary like this before… Kind of neat though, to see what kind of quotes I’m drawn to right now in my life when I look back at them later.

I must try this “note taking” more. Why press “print” every time you see something nice? Why not write it down with a pen in a real book and make it last longer than a little post-it-note? Or maybe add the post-it to your journal? Give it a try!
