January 2016 setup update…

Just a quick post with a video of my updated Traveler’s Notebook Planner setup for January 2016.

I also made some adjustments to the insert listings on Etsy and added a range of lovely designer covers to choose from for you notebook covers or folders.

I hope I made the ordering process easier, by removing the separate listings for each size and style and have condensed the insert listings to:

  • MOTP-WOTP combo insert, with either a listing for a design cover or a listing for a plain card-stock
  • WOTP or MOTP insert, with either a listing for a design cover or a listing for a plain card-stock
  • Bullet journal insert, with either a listing for a design cover or a listing for a plain card-stock
  • Notes Insert, plain/grid/lined/dot-grid/cross-grid, with either a listing for a design cover or a listing for a plain card-stock

I now also have the folders with either a listing for a design cover or a listing for a plain card-stock, with or without pen-loops.

All the diary styles are shown here on my Diaries explained page and you can also find the color options for the diaries there. Continue reading

My oldest Traveler in use…

It’s been rather a busy few weeks these past weeks. To relax a little I like to work in my art journal. At the moment I have 2 art-journal Travelers. One is Regular size and the other is A5. Today I want to share with you my oldest TN in use. It looks lovely, marked with all things life has thrown at it. Still as strong as ever.

It’s the same saddle leather I usually use, maybe even a little thinner. Its lovely brown glow does not come from any dye, well apart from the acrylic and ink add-on’s….It’s just oiled veg tan leather… Continue reading

Setting up a new shop interface ain’t easy…

Well, that is, it’s easy enough if you go with all the defaults, but to make it your own and have all the bells and whistles you saw in other shops, that you really thought were awesome….That ain’t easy… However being a former IT admin, I do know a bit about these things.

I’ve build a website before and dabbled with html and style sheets and stuff, had several blogs and know a little bit of scripting, so I should be fine…

However it looks like it’s going to be a lengthy process. I’m doing it all next to the up and running Etsy store, which is going great, which in turn means there not all too much time to spend on things like setting up my own store front… Continue reading

How many inserts can my Traveler’s Notebook hold…

I get that question a lot: How many inserts does your Traveler’s Notebook hold. Specially when talking about a Regular sized Traveler. I always feel a little lost with this question, because I know there is no straight forward answer. It all depends on the thickness of the inserts. That’s why I thought I would write a blog post about it and try to show you what I mean.

I do have a standard respons, because generally speaking this is what it comes down to. However it all depends on the inserts. I Usually say, my Regular Size (RS) cover allows for 3-4 inserts, that’s booklets, folders and such and my XL RS, being 20 mm wider, will allow for 6-8 inserts.

However, like I said, it all depends on the inserts, not all inserts are the same. You have your folders, plastic zipper pouches, leather wallet inserts and booklets.

Now most things are fairly straight forward and it is clear that a folder will get thicker when you put stuff in it and so does a zipper pouch. A leather insert has a thickness of it’s own and mostly that seems to be clear. It’s the booklets that cause the confusion. Not all booklets are equal…there’s even a difference between a booklet that hasn’t been written in and one that is full. This is something you should take into account when looking for inserts. Also my inserts, the Falcon Files, are about 60 pages. Looking around on Etsy and elsewhere, I have found most inserts are about 40 pages. Fieldnotes booklets are 48 pages. Midori inserts and Moleskine cahiers have about the same number of pages as my Falcon Files. This all makes it difficult to compare.

So I’m not going to do that, I’m just going to give you a real life example. My own Regular size Traveler. Continue reading
