We still think pen (or my favourite - pencil!) and paper are a great way to make notes, make lists and make art. We purchased nice little Moleskine notebooks (lined or unlined pages available) and added Lily prints for personality. You get to use your notebook however your personality chooses - OCD notes, temporary forgetfulness lists, recollections of your travels, tracking good wines, line drawings of that lamp that you ARE going to replicate one day, creating beautiful drawings... Small $5, large $7. glenda.
