Let's leave aside the vexing question of whether here in the UK we travel with two "l"s, or more economically, with only the one, and instead simply enjoy the current trend for this particular kind of notebook.
It's slim, so filling it completely feels like a distinct possibility rather than a pipe dream, and it looks at its best when stuffed, clipped up so that it all stays together. I'm a fan. I've never kept a diary, not for longer than a week or two, but - and it has been a surprise - I've found myself using a notebook, over the last couple of months, to make a record of what I've been doing day to day. Not every day; but at weekends glueing in a picture of one of our child free trips, writing a couple of sentences, it's been satisfying.
Some weeks I have gone further - another surprise - writing more about the March just past, which was a hard month here
I can't honestly explain why writing it small, clipping it up so that I can hold it in my hand, feels somehow better than spreading it across a 12 inch piece of cardstock. Maybe it's the clipping? If I can hold it in my hand then I can get a grip of it, in any sense you care to imagine.
As an experiment I tried telling the same story in a layout. I can't say that I didn't enjoy cutting up paper. I always do.
But with the notebook entry I was able to fold it all up and put it away. Interesting.
Both of these projects were made with the Gossamer Blue April Planner Kit and have appeared on their blog here. Next month there will be a separate subscription for Traveller's Notebook fans. Roll on May!
