About : I initially came up with this idea when brainstorming for usage of the eBooks. The thought book originally started as a personal diary but then transformed into a thought book for both sexes and also different age groups. The design of the thought book is so simple it can be made at home.

I started off by accumulating different phrases, and then getting clipart to accompany the phrases. They then had to be arranged which was fun. I used a software package called Neo Office which allowed me to write text on top or behind pictures/drawings. I then had to create a template with lines in order to create a notepad which I was easily copy and pasted to create a few notepad pages. I am extremely pleased with my thought book and invite you to try and make your own.
