upward spiral

Spiral-bound note books are handy for notes.  Here is one that I had a pve design illustration printed on and am thinking about selling these on-line too.  What sorts of notes would you keep in a spiral notebook?

I agree it's a great idea. I use a spiral for my grocery list or keeping score of card game. We just seem to always have one handy. Happy Friday!

it varies, but the options are endless. I doodle alot with money and shopping list..and then I draw.

I hate those things...no really i hate them! The spiral always goes wankers and the papers fall out :(
I keep my idea's and sketches in a big black hardcover book, it goes everywhere i go.

Since I am a major list person, this one is easy for me. I would use it for all my lists, and as I finish, I could tear it out and recycle. I think your idea is a great one. Spiral on!

Lists, thoughts, plans and drawings!
Would buy some for sure.

Jo said...

Sold!
Let me know when the are available. I have a small notebook that I carry with me so I can jot down ideas, suggestions on new places to try, phone numbers, and any other information that I know I'll forget by the time I get home ~ a little short term memory loss going on!

Gulp! Yes sell them online! Between the apron and the spiral. I can't wait. Yahoo...

I would write some of my thoughts down, notes to myself and doodle.

Have a golden weekend! xoxo

M-
now I hear you, but the black sketch books can be intimidating - and I never seem to fill them, then my heart wants a new one.

Great idea. I love spirals as otherwise everything is falling out! List, list and more lists!

Deidra said...

I get all giddy just thinking about the blank pages in a spiral notebook! The possibilities are endless!

Hi Patricia,
I use about 4 at a time, mostly at my computer to keep track of links/blogs/notes so I think your idea of offering them online is brillant. Can never have enough of them, and what could be better than ones with a PVE design on them!

littlebyrd said...

Lists! I make lots and lot of lists and a spiral is just perfect for the task. I think your idea of selling them is a wonderful idea!

Kwana said...

I love a good notebook. Now I want one with my house. I always take tons of notes from quick numbers to a novel idea.

College Prepster said...

I'm an obsessive list maker. I have lists for everything. I use a little spiral right now... but those are so cute!

Prairie Girl Studio said...

do i love everything you post? yes!
and i love notebooks and sketchbooks and journals ...my trusty coil 'work' book holds notes from clients, the gazillion username/password stuff that we seem to need nowadays ... i have little purse ones for jotting down dreams to create some day ... little sketches ... gratitude journals ... and just yesterday a dear friend popped a little one in my mailbox for me ... so a resounding YES i would love to have a pve design notebook to cherish ...
you go girl!

You should MOST def sell those Patricia! Could we custom order? Those would make fantastic hostess gifts. And, I would use mine to keep on my nightstand as a gratitude journal. XXOO

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I love it! I would by one for me and one for my mom.

Simply Mel said...

Yes, yes, yes! You must make these lovely notebooks available to us all!

....I am an hourly 'jotter' of notes! From books to read, hotels to visit, products to purchase, ingredients to find, and on and on...

pam said...

a to-do binder would be helpful in my life. i could gather all my to-do lists in one place!

Alison Kelley said...

What a great idea to have your beautiful art work on something so handy. I love a spiral note book, I have to have one to write down things to do otherwise I forget. Even with all the modern technology, nothing beats a nice spiral notebook!

I think your market has spoken: yes, please. I do love the idea that women who want to support each other. Go for it. We'll be/buy there.

pve design said...

Camille said...

That is a great idea! Please let us know when you start offering them! I keep everything in notebooks! My house is filled with them. I try to keep them separated by subject, but I inevitably just grab whichever is nearest and start scribbling whatever idea or list needs to spill out of my head.

heidi said...

I would keep notes on EVERYTHANG...

Mary-Laure said...

I always carry a pretty notebook to jot down ideas, phone numbers, anything.

Millie said...

You've seen our current renovation 'challenge' Patricia - so page. 1 of my notebook reads: dynamite, bulldozer, new husband, sanity!
Love your idea, I'll wire the cash!

I love journals, notepads, any type of bound paper... put a beautiful illustration on the front, even better!!

LindsB said...

This is a great idea! I keep a notebook in my bad at all times- I write everything in there from my grocery lists to lists of designers I read about in magazines to random project ideas I think of during the day. They are great for To-do list makers like myself. Happy Friday!!

Southern Aspirations said...

Oh I love that! I would totally buy one.

I use notebooks for everything- work lists, grocery lists, household lists, journals...

erika said...

that is gorgeous!
i make messy notes in my non-spiral (composition books). i cant be trusted (with work stuff) in a spiral notebook because I'm tempted to tear the pages out. so with a comp book, I'm a little more trustworthy. ;)

purple pineapple said...

I use a spiral notebook each and everyday for my lists - to do, to get, to call back, to email back. I adore my checkboxes and get so much more accomplished. Thanks for elevating their status beyond my 79 cent Target one! We'd love to see you sell them online!

simply seleta said...

Please sell those!!! I'd love to have one with a pic of our home for a guest book! Delightful and as always, beautiful!!!

I WANT ONE! Sorry for the CAPS, but it was totally warranted. :-)

I keep *all* of my notes at work in a notebook, with each date I take the note clearly written at the top of the page. Sort of a “to do” list/journal. And all of my techy/blackberry/twittering colleagues make fun of me. But who almost always remembers deadlines and discussions? That would be the geek with the old school notebook. :-)
