ETCETERAS: Easy 5-Minute Canvas Notepad Holder

Easy Canvas Notepad Holder via homeworkI have to confess, I’m a bit of a notepad hoarder. I love pretty notepads and often receive them as gifts. The problem is I love them so much I don’t use them. I’ll grab other bits of paper to jot a note and “save” my pretty notepads.

Easy Canvas Notepad Holder via homeworkAs part of my new year decluttering, I’m starting to work on my office/craft room. It’s a mess and things have really piled up. I came to the conclusion that I really need to start using some of my notepads. It’s silly to leave them on display or stacked up by the phone with no intention of writing on them.

And since I like things in 3’s, I might make one more – either another pretty notepad or a to-do list. Once they’re all done, I can use velcro strips to hang them and create a little command center.
One small step for toward organization… several more large steps to go but I’ll get there.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
