Sunday Scribblings #23

Aaron’s topic this week is paper.

I don’t know about you, but I love stationery stores. And I always spell stationery as stationary first and then I have to google which spelling I actually need and make the change LOL

Planners and notebooks are a downfall for me. I love them. Even if I don’t need them, I am often sucked into the notebook section, lovingly touching every single one I like and flipped the pages of the empty book knowing full well that I will never use it as I prefer to do my writing on a laptop for easy editing.

I have learned some self-control with my notebooks and I hope to continue that. But I do have a few notebooks at home.

I have one by my bed that has all my passwords in the back of it for everything and the front is where I take random notes that I need or have amassed a list of Bible verse for a book I wanted to write about my 100-days connection to my faith but haven’t started at all.

I have a notebook in my bedside table, it is full of quotes and Bible verses that inspire me. Like from the movie A Walk to Remember? The main character’s mom kept one just like it and that’s where I got the idea.

And I have one other notebook tucked away in a suitcase under my bed. I’m not sure what is in it anymore, but I think the last time I was using it, it had a list of baby names that I loved and wanted to use if/when I ever have children. The list might still be there!

I have a habit of using notebooks for a little while, just a few pages with writing on them, and then forgetting about them. I’ll find them a while later and rip out the used pages and start again. There is something really satisfying about finishing a notebook though. I just did this before I moved in September. A notebook my BFF gave me when I graduated from teachers’ college (7 years ago!) finally had its last page ripped out. It used to have all my passwords but they were transferred over to the new one so I could throw the empty note book out.

I will even take a notebook where the pages are beautiful and I love them, rip all the pages out, cut off the torn edge to make it straight and then just use it as writing paper for notes and grocery lists and things. Last year I used up an entire envelope of such pages writing notes to my students at the end of the year. Hand writing 47 notes took a lot of time and effort but it’s not like I had anything better to do in May and June LOL

So TLDR: I love paper and stationery things and now I want to go and look at notebooks, so thanks a lot for that Aaron…. LOL (jk I’m not mad at all).

  1. I love paper too! I am a paper addict. I also am a planner addict. I may have a post on this today to share. Our local Office Depot is closing that location and of course i had to go and find some bargains. Got two new notebook/journal things. 🙂

  5. Oh my.. same
    Anything stationary catches my eye, colours, paints. Oh and the books.
    I also love feeling pages and randomly flipping through them. I love books that have a beautiful colour/picture on top and in between the book too!
    My favorite has to be books that you untie to open it up.
    I could go on and on
    But i use my books as diary so they’re all carefully hidden in my big book shelf!
