    First of all…hmmm…how do we know this princess-covered one isn’t yours? Ha ha! And second, did you send this to Field Notes? I know they’d love it!

    • I sent it them last night. :)

      I’d totally admit if that one was mine. :) She’s plastered a few of mine with similar stickers; she likes to leave her mark. :)

  2. What an artist! I am filled with envy over the Super Grover sticker. Grover’s always been my favorite muppet.

    This may be a whole new post in and of itself, but I’d be interested to know how you use Field Notes. Do you use them for specific notes? Or, like myself, are they just for free-form “notes to self”, or quick sketches and blurbs? What system do you use to categorize and archive?

    This is something that’s interested me a lot lately, as I’m trying to develop some kind of rhyme or rhythm for my notes. I’m getting tired of paging through and seeing notes like: “product spreadsheet revisit” alongside several pixel dimensions like “1400×396″. :D

    • That WOULD be a good post. Have to get thinking on this. :)

      To tell the truth, I sort of ditched my regular journal when I had Field Notes all over from a subscription (I don’t have a sub anymore, *tear*). Everything goes in there:

      Drawings
      Books/movies/music/strollers to look up
      Directions
      Journal/diary-type entries
      Notes (lately, for instance, fried-green-tomatoes recipes; birthday present lists for all the people I know who were born in August; back-to-school sections to hit)
      It serves as that place where people at a bar draw something they can’t explain or something ridiculous someone said. Someone told me last week, “You know, I think my mother’s mother was a whore,” and I wrote it down. :)

      My archive is currently just a Sam Adams box whose art I liked. I really like those wooden boxes, but I’d need three straight away. For that much money, I’d rather buy notebooks. :)

    • Forgot: Dollar bins at Target are usually a good spot for Sesame Street stuff. I’m pretty sure that’s where she got those, for her birthday party favors last year. They have held up really well, too!

    • Thanks, Elizabeth! If Henry turns out to be half as fond of drawing as she is, we’ll need to have pencil sharpeners installed in every room. :)

    Very nice post. It brought back some good
    memories of my son and daughter when they
    were young and would share there art and ideas.

    They’re teenagers now and they still use Field
    Notes and Moleskines. They just don’t share. Ha!
    it’s probably for the best. I imagine their content
    today would scare me to death.

    Thanks again for this post, it dug up some really fond
    thoughts.
