In this day of electronic reminders, I still like to keep a few of them in paper format. I guess it’s very similar to the feeling you get about a card someone sends you in the mail versus an electronic greeting. You’re more likely, I think, to store the former as a keepsake over the latter. At any rate, in keeping with my preference for certain reminders to be in paper format, I am introducing a “Save the Date Notebook,” a few of which you’ll find in my Mister PenQuin shop on Etsy. The five-inch by five-inch book is divided into 12 sections for the 12 months of the year, and each month you’ll have 84 opportunities to enter a special date for a birthday, baptism, anniversary, graduation, bar mitzvah or something else.


I used BoBunny’s Flutter Butter “Breeze” paper for the above book. The papers in this collection are so cheerful that I couldn’t resist combining several of them in one cover. I joined together different sizes and shapes of the paper, patchwork-style, using a combination of straight and zig-zag stitches from my sewing machine. Really fun!


I also made an aquamarine-colored Save the Date Notebook from the same Flutter Butter collection. There’s something about this color that just makes me happy!


How do you keep track of important, recurring dates?
