My Planner Last Month, August

The first half of last month we were on holiday, so I didn’t get round to taking any before pics. Besides, not a lot of planning was done during the holiday. Which really is not a problem, since I use my personal planner more as a kind of memory keeper. With snippets of every day stuff. Which is sometimes hard, because when you work from home and work all day every day and your idea of a holiday is to snuggle up somewhere with a book, there’s not a lot to tell.

I doodle my way through the monthly pages, like you see in the above image. Although this time I also felt like adding some pictures. I’m quite happy with how that turned out.

I usually start my weekly’s with transferring any tasks that haven’t been checked  off from last weeks to-do list to their appropriate places and then decorate a little. Continue reading

Holiday planning and journaling

my holiday planning and journaling was virtually non existent this year. I had all the right intentions and all the right tools. I even made  a new junk journal to take with me in case the old one would run out…. but it was just to hot to do anything except take a few notes along the way so I could catch up when I was back home.

Which is what I did this week in between doing all the holiday laundry and putting away all the camping gear.

My planner last month, July

Last month was quite a hectic one and with the holiday at our doorstep I decided to go and try the #onebookjuly challenge and switch from several notebooks to just 1 B6 slim for personal and 1 A5 for work. I changed my personal planner to B6 slim because I wanted to try that size to take with me on holiday and I can definitely say that I enjoyed using this size, so I may end up using it a while longer.

Here’s my MOTP spead from July, just a few notes and mostly just doodles. I really enjoy making them to look like this, adding bits and pieces every day. Continue reading

Leather Patina

From time to time I get the question to make a notebook just like the one I posted online. Usually it turns out to be an image of one of my own Traveler’s Notebooks, which has been used quite a lot and has a lovely patina and shine to it.

Obviously I can make it just like I made mine, but the patina has to develop over time and will not come right out of the box. To demonstrate this I made some photo’s of two TN’s, one is brand new and hasn’t been handled other than for making it and the other one is mine and has been with me for over 2 years now.

Both are made from exactly the same leather, had the same dyeing process and are the same size. Continue reading

How to make bookmarks

For the past 4 years I’ve been using my leather tipped bookmarks in my Traveler’s notebook inserts. Many people have asked me if I would make and sell them for the shop.

Unfortunately I have not yet found a way to make these with a consistent look yet. I make them entirely by hand, which makes these slightly different each time. I think that is fine and even part of the fun for my personal use, but I somehow don’t feel comfortable enough about that to make them for the shop.  Continue reading

My planner last Month, June

So in keeping with what I promised in my last post I have another update on my planner last month. Still a messy planner, but it gets the job done and it makes me happy to flip through the pages.

Starting off with the finished June monthly spread, filled mostly with doodles, because I don’t like empty spaces. Mostly used to keep track of birthdays and as a quick overview for appointments. Continue reading

My planner last Month

I have this list with things I want to blog about, but really not a lot of time to write lengthy blogs. Running a small business can be quite time consuming and your work is really never done. Working 10-12 hour days every day with all the worries that go with owning a small business, which is really a story for a blogpost all on it’s own, writing a blogpost is not something that has the highest priority.

However I decided that a post doesn’t have to be a 1000 words. A few words and a few pics can make a nice post as well. So that’s what I’m going to try.

In my Facebook group I post something every day. I have figured out that having a # hashtag with a subject in it, works for me to keep me on track and help me with the content for the posts.

On Monday’s I make posts with #MyPlannerMonday, which is basically just a post with my last week and my next week views. Nothing fancy, just my messy planner pages. With once a month my monthly pages.

Somehow I feel that alone would not make for a great blogpost, but I’m not sure. What do you think? Continue reading
