My Little Black Book
I’m going to let you in on a personal secret. I have a little black book. It contains information about some very special people I know. Some I have known for quite a long time while others I’ve only met once. Some I may have only been with for 5 minutes, but a girl has to keep up with all these people, right? Well, let’s just say that until two nights ago, I had a maroon book and it looked like this…
This book is at least 20 years old and contains a very dirty secret. I’m going open the cover so you can see something extremely disturbing and shocking. Ready?
Okay, I’m busted. For a long time I have been stuffing business cards into this address book in absolutely the laziest, sloppiest way ever. “My name is Helen and I am a business card hoarder and stuffer.” Well, no more people. I am reforming myself and my method of business card storage. I hemmed and hawed about how to properly store all these cards so I can find them easily. I had not come up with any great solution until I found this at Dollar Tree….
Who knew that for just $1.00 I could solve my business card laziness? End of story right? Of course not. Anyone who has read two or more of my blog posts realizes that there is a major problem with this little black book. Have you guessed it yet? Hello people, it’s black. Just black. Plain black. Boring black. And you should know by now I don’t do plain and boring, right? So I grabbed some supplies and got to work.
Surprisingly I was able to pick the papers and image in less than a minute which truly is a record for me!
Then I looked through my treasure chest of embellishments and chose this set. These are beautiful 3-D stickers with glitter and rhinestones. There is just one tiny sticker I used but it makes a big impact on this project.
Ready to see the final result? The Helenized version of the little black book? Okay, here it is…
Oh, but that’s not all. I’m going to bare it all. Here’s the inside…
This little project took less than 30 minutes and that included filing all the business cards into categories. I am so excited because now I will be able to locate the card I need without having a major guilt trip over my dirty little secret. I have been reformed people and you can be too. Just go to Dollar Tree and shell out $1.00 for the card holder ($2.00 if you include the 3-D sticker set) and set yourself free from your sloppy ways!
