When I posted a video a few weeks ago on how-to feel better when you are feeling blue, a lot of you had questions about my “life notebook” or “goal notebook” that I mentioned. Here in this video I show you what is in mine so that you can make one of your own. It is a very simple process.
All you need to make a goal notebook is a binder (I like ones that you can put pictures in), paper, pens, pictures, and plastic paper protectors (optional). Of course, this is entirely customizable.

I love finding new ways to upcycle used products (see how to upcycle Birchbox boxes here). I got this really cute Paula Deen “Fruit Pizza” candle (from my local super market) awhile ago and when I finished it off I didn’t want to plain old recycle the jar. Instead, I turned it into a battery holder! I recycle my batteries (they can be so bad for the environment) so I needed somewhere to hold them until I could take them to be recycled. All I did was clean out the candle and then tape a recycle symbol inside.
