more notes:



so i hope you are not tired of notes yet! i had an idea while i was driving one night to make nick a ‘web scavenger hunt note book’ where i made him some small handwritten notes that contained web addresses he had to go to, in order to find the real note! i thought it was neat and would make it fun for him to find the notes on the internet. some of the web notes were images, but i did record a couple video notes too, which i probably won’t be sharing cause i was super silly and i’d be embarassed 😉








this note directed nicholas to the playlist of songs i selected for him. 

we’re talking, lots of cheesy ‘love’ songs :)





this note contained “an important reminder” which had him go here




this note contained a video message!



 
the final message had him go to a website for some cutsey images i collected
and placed on a website for him to read :)




so anyway, if you want to do something like this for a friend or someone special, it’s easy! to make the web notes, i used iweb and my web camera for the videos. if you have iweb + a mobileme (or .mac) account through apple, you know how easy it is to create and publish websites.

if you don’t have a mac, that’s okay too! you will need a place to make websites for your ‘web notes’ (you can try google sites.) and a web camera (if you want to include video notes)

the notes included:

– a really cheesy lovers playlist! (via playlist.com)
– 2 video notes.
– 1 picture note.
– 1 note of found images.

but get creative! create the web notes you want to include, get them organized, then create a book of notes and simply write the web addresses out on each page.

oh, the last element i used was this site, which shortens long web addresses into something like, “fly.to/thispage” so you can have a shorter URL in your written messages in the book.

  2. I really think I may attempt this! It’s soooo cute and I love to leave notes so it’s right up my alley…However none have been quite this time intensive so we’ll see how it turns out! I’m excited I want to leave work and go home and start on this! Thanks for the ideas!

  3. Hi Danni!!! Oh my, I’ve been a horrible bloggy friend lately… I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve commented over here on your blog. I’ve missed it (and you)!! <3

    this is, once again, just a wonderful idea. So, so sweet. I think you and Nicholas might possibly be one of the cutest, sweetest, most creative couples ever. :)

    I hope things are going great for you, friend! I’ll try to stop by more often. :)

  4. I am so in love with this idea! My honey lives in another state, and with me starting grad school this next week, I’ve been trying to think of little ideas to help us feel closer. This is perfect!! =)
