Easy Custom Notepads

Posted: May 31st, 2010 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions | 2 Comments »

As techy as this world is coming to — I can’t stop the enjoyment of writing on a pretty pad of paper…

Along with some of my other mom friends, we went to a local printing company and custom ordered our notepads. Because of ordering in bulk, they were able to give us a great price. We supplied the paper - they cut, printed, hole punched and perforated them.

Then we got to do the fun stuff — adding ribbon.

Here are some of the ideas my friends and I came up with…

✏ A Grocery List

✏ A Business Memo Pad

✏ Family Notes

✏ Great gifts for Teachers or Friends

✏ and even for quick Kid Thank You Notes

And if you want proof that I really thought up all of these — here is my proof. Yes, I do love notepads!

Are your wheels turning? What would you use one for?

My New Passenger

Posted: May 20th, 2010 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions | 2 Comments »

I’m definitely a basket person,if you haven’t figured that out yet, but my new favorite one is this beauty

Reisenthel Market Basket, Baroque Sand

It is a Reisenthel Market Bag and they come in so many colors and patterns - and are just so stinking durable. You can check out all the colors and styles at Reusablebags.com or click here.

It was a birthday gift from my sister-in-law last year and one of my favorite things from My Favorite Things Newsletter too. I knew exactly where I wanted to put my basket and that was in my car. I have 4 little hands in the back that love to play with things while I tote them around. Happy Meal toys, books, matchbox cars…you name it we have it in that basket. It is also a great place to hold that extra hat, mittens or water bottle so it doesn’t end up on the floor of the car.

Someday maybe I’ll go to the farmer’s market and carry it around looking all cool….

…but right now it fits perfectly as a mini organizer/passenger in the car.

Want another idea? Well, I returned the favor and my sister-in-law requested one for her birthday too — so her’s has found a place at the bottom of their stairs and it has become the catch all for things needing to go up. Great idea!
