    We sound a lot of like. I’m upscaling mine a bit more this year just for pretty factor, but I like to be as a simple as possible. I guess don envelopes for patterns, glue in pjamaphlets, and have my own coloring
    Coding system. Good luck everyone with your journals.

    I don’t have a journal but this summer I divided all my printed patterns by type – crochet, loom knitting, etc. Each is now in a sheet protector and in 3-ring binders for easy access. I can remove it from the binder, tuck it in with the project, and return it when I’m done. I do like the idea of keeping a journal of what projects I’ve done, what yarns I used and who received it.

    This sounds a very similar concept to ‘The Bullet Journal’. Great job Mikey at creating and adapting to find a solution that works for you. It was great to see another adaptation for this method.

    While reorgnizing my room, the one I use for preparing lessons, keeping my matirials, I realized I am a notebook junky. Have them in all sizes. So I decided it is time to use them. Now I have one in my crochet bag which is small in size but heavy in pages. What I like about it is that there is a place for a pencil. So the pencil is always attached. (I prefer pencils on pens.) Very convenient. And the cover is handmade with very nice silky fiber.

    Excellent idea, something I’ve been trying for for years. I’ve managed to get all of my patterns and notes for said patterns in one folder. When I find it again I will put a rock on it so it will quit wandering off.

    I have designed a few baby afghans for my family members and destroyed the directions when finished so each piece would be one of a kind. If I had kept a journal, they would still be one of a kind. But, if I ever wanted to make another, it is lost. At my age (77) I could not begin to remember. I have given the items to family and friends, and even nurses and doctors that have cared for me. Love your idea!

    I totally agree with you about not having a journal that is “too” Organized. I too, end up writing “other notes” In my project journal, if it is nearby.
    It comes in SIO handy, especially when making a project again, after a long period of time. I usually date when I begin and end a project, so I have an idea of how long it takes to complete. I am a bit OCD….

    Is it good to keep a journal for crocheting and etc. Like crosstitch, knitting and so forth. I never kept one before on any project. Do you list a date for when you start the project.

    Mom and I earlier this year went to a “Home Show” in San Diego. We were researching cabinet companies because Mom wants to remodel the kitchen. As Mom talked to the sales reps/owners, I picked up business cards, flyers, and brochures and paperclipped them to pages and I would write notes on a “neighboring” page. I felt pleased with how I was helping Mom and keeping everything organized for her.
    I dropped the notebook.
    Chaos.
    All my carefully paperclipped flyers and brochures fell out.

    My recommendation: staple it or when traveling with the journal secure it in such a way that everything stays in the spot you intended.

    I use a 5 inch by 8 inch journal. All it contains is lined pages, no year, months, or dates. It is just the right size for me and very portable. I also found it in the stationary section and it only cost 2 dollars. I have not filled it up yet so I will get more than a year’s use out of it. 🙂

    Great idea. I have thought of doing this but wondered what size I needed and if someone might also have the idea . I have a couple of journals here at home. I going to start one. Hopefully my granddaughter will someday use it or look at it and say WOW
