Animal Notebooks, Binders and Photo Albums
Back to School or Just for Fun
Notebooks and Binders are necessities in school, but they are also a great way to organize projects, ideas or photos.
I have one binder for my home décor. I filled the binder with manila envelopes and labeled an envelope per room. Inside each room envelope is a list of the names and brands of the paint colors used in the room, a color card sample of the paint and swatches of fabrics used for curtains or linens. When I shop for accent pieces or try to match colors, I carry that binder with me to the store.
I have another binder for my garden. This binder starts with the drawing and photos of my existing garden and continues with a list of the names and the location of each of my trees and plants. In some cases, I even write down the store where I purchased the item and the price. This is a marvelous memory aid when someone asks me the name of a particular Iris and where I bought it. It also helps me purchase more of exactly the same flower.
Like everyone else, I have dozens of photo albums and scrapbooks. I strive to keep my photo albums in chronological order. Over the years, I have found that I prefer the 3 ring notebook binder style which allows me to determine the number of pages each album contains. Now, I no longer have to have pictures from Christmas, graduations or vacations split between two albums just because the pre-assembled album has insufficient pages. I can add a few more pages or remove a few pages from the albums which allows me to determine the beginning and the end of each book.
When I opened my Zazzle store, I was thrilled to find that I could make my own binders which I have featured below. They are all currently available in the House of Sylvestermouse on Zazzle.
Red Panda Binder
Such a welcoming face!
Who could resist loving this little sweetheart? She looks so happy to see you.
When I took this photo, I wasn't sure if she was watching me or if I was watching her.
She is just such a delight!
Zebra's are a combination of natural grace and beauty.
Each individual zebra has it own unique stripe pattern which makes them truly one of a kind.
This exquisite beauty didn't seem to mind me taking her picture.
The Gray Wolf Binder
One of my personal favorites is the Gray Wolf Binder which features a solitary wolf pausing to get a drink of water.
When I took this photo, I really wanted to run over and pet this beauty. I suspect I would have scared her off if I had moved in an aggressive manner. As it is, I have the lovely photo to share with you.
The Bear Notebook Collection - I Have Always Loved Bears!
These are definitely worth checking out. The photos wrap all the way around to the back of the binders.
There is a beautiful waterfall on the back of the binder of the little American Black Bear leaving his cave and a third Grizzly Bear on the back of the Swimming Party binder.
Meerkat Guard Notebook Binder
This little fellow is standing guard today. When I uploaded my pictures the day I took this shot, I was surprised by what I discovered was lurking in the left hand corner of the photo.
This is another photo that wraps around the back of the binder.
Join me in The House on Sylvestermouse at Zazzle.com and click the Meerkat Binder picture there to take a look at the back of the binder and you will see who else is there.
The Big Cat Notebook Collection
If you prefer the big cats, there are several options available for you.
You can have your choice of the Royal Bengal Tiger or the White Bengal Tiger.
They are often confused with the Siberian Tiger which is a larger breed, but otherwise look very much the same.
If you are looking for the king of the jungle, he is available too. This is easily the most beautiful picture I have taken of a lion.
Hmmmm, perhaps I should just say, this is a beautiful lion who allowed me to take his picture.
Of course, you may be energized by this Cheetah.
He is on the endangered list as threatened, but I can assure you, the day I took this picture I felt a lot more threatened by him than he did by me.
Regardless of which big cat you would normally prefer, I do believe you will fall in love with these two today.
It is always so amazing to see such large, terrifying creatures being so gentle and caring of one another.
For those of you who prefer our cold blooded friends, I have the perfect binder / notebook for you!
Like the previous binders, this photo wraps around the notebook. There is a second lizard on the back cover.
Or Perhaps You Prefer Amphibians!
I found this little fellow hunting insects outside my own back door one night. I am more than happy for him to stay there and eat until his heart is content.
He does not look very happy about my camera flash, but I am sure he would be happy to tag along with you!
Maybe a Little Fear Gets Your Heart Racing
This creature scares me to death!
Even now I feel his evil intent when I look at his picture.
I was not the least bit interested in sitting down for lunch with him.
