“A half-baked idea is okay as long as it is in the oven.”
If I had kept every idea I ever clipped out of a magazine or saw in the newspaper or heard about through the grapevine or had on my own . . . I would have an enormous idea library. True. Some ideas are bad ideas and some are impossible ideas. Some are just plain out- of -date but some are really, really good. I am more selective about what I keep now that I am older and wiser. Well, maybe mostly older. An idea is only a “keeper” if I think there is a very good possibility that I will actually “need” it or do something with it.
This is my IDEA FILE. The pocket-folders come 12 to a pack at Wal-Mart. Brown and Green. I like both but chose brown. I ruffled through my alphabets and found this little tag alphabet which I have had for many years. I punched out the alphabet and placed the letters on brown card stock paper. I ran the paper through my laminator. Then I used my paper cutter to cut between the letters. Using a small piece of double stick tape, I attached each letter to the back of each pocket-folder and once in position I stapled them one by one. IDEA FILE ! What a great idea !
