I can’t survive without my composition notebook, aka journal. I used to also carry a folder with me because I like to keep my papers neat and orderly. But since having a baby, even less is way more. I bought Lucy some cute paper doll note cards, which I laminated to minimize destruction. So now I have quite a few leftover envelopes. Fortunately they are pretty large and will easy hold a half a sheet of paper. I picked the front of the journal instead of the back. I thought the envelope would interfere with writing less than the back. First I sealed the envelope. Second, I cut off one side entirely. Third, I glued it down. Presto. I don’t really keep a lot in the envelope. A four month calendar, which is printed on one page. Plus a list of art project ideas. And my returning train ticket. All which helps to keep me folderless.
