My pal Sonia sent me a Tim binder for Christmas. It contained plain and patterned pages - made from Tim Holtz papers if course - plus others that had been made into secret pockets. Such a clever idea and coupled with a lovely little verse and charm. I was more than over the moon.
I hadn't given much thought to its use, I just oodled at it until we filled the big pond in and doubled the perennial border. I knew straight away how to use my precious binder. A record of all the plants and some tips on their care. These are just a couple of the pages. 
It sits happily next to my Chemistry 102 binder in the corner of my workspace.

Thank you Sonia. It's a real treasure now.

What a good idea and such a lovely gift too. I've just been saving the labels from new plants in a box - maybe they deserve a notebook like yours too. Elizabeth xx
