If you are taking my Sketch your Life Online Class, you know what my favourite Sketchbooks are . . . I just LOVE the Moleskine Sketchbooks & Watercolor Sketchbooks and the small Sketchbooks / Travel Sketchbooks by Hahnemuehlen . . . but I just found a new Love . . . the Midori Travelers Notebook. Many people use it as a Planner (like a Filofax etc.) but I bought it to use it as a Sketchbook + Journal/Diary + Poroject Life Book/Smashbook. All of that? Yes . . . that’s what I really LOVE about the Midori System . . . it is acutally that leather Flap with Rubber Strings and you can add different Booklets to it-and it holds a LOT (so you can make it really nice & chunky which I LOVE)! The leather feels (and smells) so good and I just love how it feels in your hands-love to open it and flip through the Pages . . .! I added 3 different Booklets to it right now-one is a plain white Booklet with rather thin Paper for Inspiration / Smashbook Style, another Booklet with kraft Pages (using this one as a Journal / Diary) and anothe rone with more heavyweight white Pages to use as a everyday Sketchbook). Not sure yet how the Paper takes Watercolor-still need to try that-but if it does not take it well I can still make my own Booklet out of Watercolor Paper 🙂 And I love that once the Booklets are filled-you can just take them out and replace them with a new Booklet, and store the filled ones in a nice box or something . . . very convenient!
Anyway . . . this really makes me happy right now because I am in love with this cute little Book and I am having so much fun using & pimping it & filling the Pages . . .! Just thought I would share, just in case you are still looking for a great Sketchbook / Notebook and / or for a fun Christmas Present for yourself 😉
Sharing some Photos . . . if you want to see more please hop over to my other Blog The Mintgreen Polkadot for some more Eyecandy since I will not be sharing so much of this one here in the Future-just thought it would be a perfect fit on here as well since you can perfectly use it as a Sketchbook or Artjournal as well-not only as a Notebook or Planner . . . 🙂
