I blog because it gives me a great creative outlet, a way to express my love for beauty and makeup. While I am a certified makeup artist, I needed another outlet to get my passion out there. Above is one of my idea books and on the left is the fall color scheme. I like to write my ideas down that way (a) I don't forget them and (b) I have a chance to look back at my ideas, see what I've done, what I haven't done, what I want to re-do, and fully realize my ideas that I may not have been able to flush out at the time.
here and here, they are made by Melissa at A Virtuous Woman. She has a lot of great resources for bloggers.
