Little jot cards get around

Just when we thought I couldn’t find a smaller jot journal…

I received a bag of nifty little key ring language card packs as part of the loot I purchased from a local fundraising auction.

The previous owner used to teach English in Japan. Apparently, these STAD cards are popular and handy for writing, learning vocabulary in English and Japanese. There are places you can buy these online. Don’t ask me to convert the currency tho.

STAD Word’s World Language cards re-purposed

I gave a couple away to offspring and a workmate. I am re-purposing one as a purse-sized jot notes media. I have called the first collection “Little Blonde Jots”, which are low-tech affirmations or observations written in pen and maybe later enhanced with some illumination – or Crayola markers.  These will be much briefer than entries in the Deep Blonde Thoughts blog.

Let’s see how long this lasts…

As an international detour while searching, I tripped upon an interesting news link about Norway’s plans to build the world’s biggest shipping tunnel in Stad. That’s pretty cool!

On a related note, soon I will travel to the shores of one of our Great Lakes for a boat cruise, to get caught up with family members who are travelling from their current home and workplace in Norway. Small world. Thank you, Internet!

Thanks for dropping by. What low-tech tools are you using to capture thoughts, observations and inspirations?
