Setting up for NaNoWriMo 2017

Now that we finally caught up with all our orders and new ones going out the door on schedule, YAY, I decided I would this year have time to participate in NaNoWriMo. Obviously that meant I needed a new notebook. The perfect excuse to finally make the B6 size I’ve been wanting for quite some time now.

It was so hard to choose a color, because I wanted a color I didn’t have yet, but I also wanted it to look a bit rugged and Indiana Jones-y… So I went with #7 Dark Brown. But I’m still a bit on the fence about the color, but that probably has more to do with the fact that it is still new and hasn’t come to life yet.

So Yesterday evening I spend my time setting up my writerly notebook. First I needed a NaNoWriMo insert obviously, so I created one for 2017 in B6 ISO. You can find it as a freebee with the free printables. Continue reading

My Planner Last Month, September

Since I decided to join the #onebookjuly challenge, be it in a somewhat adapted format, I’ve been in my B6 slim planner with all my personal planning and journaling. I’ve got all my work stuff in my, ever growing, A5 Lady Falcon Business. Making it effectively one book for personal and one book for work.

I’m still loving the way this works, although I must admit that my work TN is getting bigger all the time. I keep adding new sections to the notebook. With now 6 inserts in there and a folder with pen-loops, I think maybe it needs some reorganizing.

My Personal B6 slim however is still in it’s original format, with a planner insert, a journaling insert and a folder. 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

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.ย 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
