Being inspired!

I am being inspired which is a good thing! The only trouble is that there are only so many hours in the day and only so much that one can accomplish. However I have discovered Microsoft One Note which is an amazing note pad facility in Microsoft Office. Using One Note means I can write notes, add pictures, even make audio comments and One Note automatically saves it all ready for the next burst of inspiration. This way as I finish one project I can immediately look in One Note for the beginnings of another. I have so many ideas just waiting to get a hearing that this was just what I needed. And one of the features which I most like is that if I copy something into it from the web that takes my fancy it automatically inserts the web address so that I will know where I found that feature later on when I will no doubt have forgotten. How often does one save something from the web only months later to have absolutely no idea where it came from! I do this all the time and it is so frustrating. So I shall be singing the praises of this neat little program!

Caity of CaityQuilter Blog tells me that August 11th is National Moth night here in the UK which is something I didn't know! I shall have to find out more! Thank you Caity!


  1. You're most welcome! I like moths. There are some really beautiful ones - I think prettier even than some butterflies. I read "Girl of the Limberlost" when I was about 7 or 8 and it had a profound effect on me...

    Sounds like one note is working for you!
    *wanders off humming - what else - the one note samba....*

  2. Good idea - we always think we'll remember things. Good to hear you're not affected by all the flooding.

  3. Val, glad to hear you are cooking on all burners. Sounds as if you have found the perfect solution for an on-line art journal. I am still an old-fashioned pen and paper gal but that's probably because I sit at the computer doing business too much. Can's wait to see what the moth inspires you to create.
