I was in need of a new inspiration notebook. I like to jot down ideas, color schemes, sketches, etc. I found this old calendar book from a few years ago and decided to give it a new life. I had kept it because I loved the size and the fact that it was spiral bound so it would lay flat when opened. With just the addition of some favorite patterned papers, ribbon and an embellishment on the cover...I now have a new book (for free). I am going to change the monthly tabs to idea categories.
Keep an eye out for notebooks that can easily be altered. If everything else but the cover appeals to you...go for it....and then alter it to suit your needs.
