#30lists


as you know, one of my goals for 2013 is to work on my blog -- rename, rebrand, and relaunch -- but i'm not there yet. i'm not sure where i want ice cream & sunshine to go. i have ideas, of course. but i need to do more research. in doing that research, i've stumbled across a million more things that i want to try my hand at. one is the 52 lists project from moorea seal. from there, i've been introduced to a bunch of new blogs, and new ideas. the latest one i've found is 30 days of lists

i know, i know. i'm a little list happy at the moment. 


i've never understood journalling. sure, i had a diary when i was younger, but i wrote in 5 times, maybe. and even then i wrote in it because that's what you did as a young girl -- you wrote about your first kiss or a heartbreak or whatever so that you would have something to look back on when you're older. i think i liked the idea of a diary, but only in so much as i love notebooks. i have a million of them, all barely used. but i just can't resist buying them; they're small, cute, and clean. and they are perfect for making lists. which brings me back to my current state of being list happy.

(ps. don't these photos look like they're crooked? it's driving me crazy!)

i started 30 lists because it combines two of my favorite things: lists and tiny notebooks. and it's a cheater's way of journalling.


instead of buying another small notebook, i decided to make my own notebook using index cards. i did this because pinterest always has such crafty things on it, and instead of just looking at others' cute homemade things, i thought it was time for me to make my own. to do that i got 33 index cards together, punched holes in them, and glued different pictures, quotes, and printables to them.

some of the resources i used were:
persnickety prints: hello. chalk cards
persnickety prints: wall art
ziggle designs: instalife january 2013 pack a
sweet shoppe designs: a wink and a smile date bits
striking truths
you can also add photos and quotes from magazines and catalogs.


do you like to make lists? why?
