How I Use My Black Dokibook 

While I mostly enjoy using my Traveler’s Notebooks and love the thought that there is so much that I can do on it, I do feel like I sometimes need a quick change of journals/planners, just like how you want to step outside for a quick change of scenery. For that reason last year, I bought a cheaper version of those ring bound planners from the makers of Dokibook which is based in Hongkong. I decided to get the black textured cover with gold dots and elastic band and it already came with a dashboard, dividers, plastic pouches, and a transparent plastic ruler, all for just $24.00 plus SH, a total of $32. Not bad for newbie user like me, right? And it’s about time that I show how I use it. I bought a couple of paper packs that I can use in it from a seller in Hongkong through eBay for $2.49/style with 40 leaves per pack and I love how cute their designs are. I wanted my pages to be minimal yet …

Junk, Stamping, and Bullet Journaling

A few days ago, while I was keeping and organizing my Traveler’s Notebooks, I found a half-finished insert that I started last year for my doodles but totally forgot about it, and thought of how I would incorporate it in my current planning and journaling system. The idea of using it for junk journaling excited me because I have tons of ephemera that I intend to use all up. So, what is it? basically, you know all those ticket stubs and receipts and things that you should throw away but don’t want to? this is the place to put these items. I’d call this a type of scrapbooking, but it requires less time and effort. There is no need to over think on layout and what your focal point would be. On another note, I’ve seen on Instagram how Traveler’s Notebook users stamp their leather covers and thought of trying it on one of my leather journal covers (not originally made by Traveler’s Company) to see if I would like how it would look and how …

National Card and Letter Writing Month

Did you know that April is… yes, card and letter writing month? cool, right? And this is the first time I’m joining in because I thought it would be the best time to get caught up with reply mails, get in touch with family, long time friends, and enemies perhaps? 😀 So, here is a peek at what I’ve sent so far. First on my list is for an aunt who turned 84 yo on the 31st of March but I forgot to send a card on time, as the saying goes… it’s better late than nothing at all. And of course, postcards for myself, immediate families, and for my best cousin. Moving on to reply mails for penpals.   I also got this pretty parcel from the official Write_On campaign site. They are still sending letter writing kits to those interested. So, go on ahead and grab one out for yourself if you want to hop in. It’s not too late. If you are a bit lost on what to write, here are a …
