Workshop: Bullet Journal

Workshop: Bullet Journal

Last week, there was a Bullet Journal workshop. The second one I have attended and it was a lot fun to meet up with people that enjoy stationery/journals/planners as much as I do.

 

These workshops take place in an independent store, Brazos Bookstore. They set up tables, sample paper and pens and other bujo accessories and then you just sit down, listen, socialize and plan out your bujo.  They even do raffles and give away free journals so you can get started right away. It’s really generous and a perfect way to get people excited. They are still figuring out what exactly is involved in these workshops so it is a work in progress, mostly discussions about different ways you can organize your bujos. However,a lot of the attendees have already started theirs and so it’s a great way to just get inspired. These events also let you test out items they have in the store, pens, paper, stencils, ect.

I’m looking forward to the next workshop, and hope to venture out to other workshops as well. I have my eyes on a hand letting one so I’ll keep you updated.

That’s all for now, until next time!

Review:Traveler’s Notebook

Review:Traveler's Notebook

Like many of you out there, I love stationery. I LOVE journals the most and I’ve been lusting after this olive green traveler’s notebook for awhile now. Specifically, this one from the original TN brand….at least I think it is the original brand.

I’ve mentioned tn’s before in a post and I also purchased a pocket sized one a few months ago that I reviewed over here. And now! Here I am again reviewing another tn! I know, I said I wouldn’t need a standard tn, but I found an alternative to the Olive Midori. I purchased on Amazon but the seller also has an etsy shop which I think is easier to navigate. I love it!

I also made a video review showing you what came in the package I purchased. If you’re as obsessed with journals as I am then feel free to check it out. I know tns aren’t for everyone, but if you like this style of journal I’d love to hear about what sort of inserts you carry around in yours.

That’s all for now, thanks for reading!

Inside Look: Planners

Inside Look: Planners

I have always enjoyed scrap booking and any type of journaling. Basically, any form of artistic documentation has been an interest of mine. Webster’s Pages has brought out their own line of Traveler’s Notebook and it took me a Boho String Journal, a lot of unboxing videos , and a failed online order to finally get my hands on one. And it took seeing the A5 Webster’s Pages Planner in person before having to have one!

Here is an inside look to both Webster’s Pages products:

I’m loving both and will update you again once I’ve had more time to set up both to my liking. Thanks so much for reading and commenting.
