The SMASH books look so cute, I inspected some at Ms the other day but I think I'm going to make my own. I have a TON of paper that I need to use and I'll probably never actually use on layouts or minis so I think I'll make my own pretty little smash book. My intention is to use it the way you've described, just a place for all my lists and thoughts and different things that I want to remember. I also think I'm going to make a section for home decor. DH and I are starting the process of buying a home and I have a million ideas so I think this will be a good thing to keep those organized as well.
