For my creative types, well, I know that you often have So many thoughts running through your head and the noise (tv, ipods, blackberries) around you makes it hard to catch those thoughts. I suggest a simple moleskine notebook. I initially carried mine around because it was a requirement for one of my drawing classes, but that class ended last year and I still continue to use it. Magazine tears, quotes, ideas and just plain scribbles, there’s alot of random things in my book. Plus, its nice to look back on what you were thinking on a particular day or what inspired you at a particular moment.
moleskine instead its a mini hard bound sketchbook by art alternatives…
Now I know blogs and online journals have replaced the need to carry around little notebooks, but there’s still that special something about having a tangible book (one perk is that it even works when your Internet or computer are having issues.)
Moleskine now offers a collection of “city notebooks” that has maps, addresses, and tips for specific cities- (New York, LA, Atlanta, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, Madrid, Stockholm, Toronto, Vancouver, and just many many more). They are Perfect for traveling!
I really like the Moleskine cahiers because they’re really light and are super easy to carry around. I would use these to take notes in my patternmaking and sewing classes.
You can purchase moleskines at your local book store, art store, or at the urbangent store.
