This year, I decided to try journaling/memory keeping in a Midori Traveler's Notebook. I saw a lot of pictures of  traveler's notebooks on Instagram, so I thought I would buy one. I'm still experimenting to see if it's a format that will work for me. 

The notebook size is 8.3" long x 4.5" wide. I'm used to writing/journaling on pages that are closer to 8.5" x 11", and really packing the page with information. However, as my life has gotten busier, I don't spend as much time journaling. I'm hoping this new format will encourage me to jump in! I can write down the basics without the pressure of filling up a larger page. 

I also plan to decorate (rubber stamps, washi tape, ephemera, etc...) most pages, since crafting is such a big part of my life now. Before, my journals were strictly words, now they will include visual elements.  

I created the entry below after sharing a special moment with my Mom:

True story!

Thanks so much for stopping by.


The clips holding the notebook open in both photos are from Michaels craft store. The clips were originally blank, so I stamped words inside them.
