Recently, I’ve been obsessing over the idea of starting a Traveler’s Notebook as a way to stay creative, document my everyday life, and brainstorm new ideas for things to work on. I started off by making my own notebook refill using printer paper, a scrapbook paper cover, and a quick push through my sewing machine to bind it. That way, I could test out the size and format before I spent any money!
In my latest video blog, I talked about my thought process and shared some of the supplies I got to start off my new journals. My hope is that if you’re thinking about getting your own Traveler’s Notebook, maybe this will help you to get started! There’s so much information out there and products to choose from and it can definitely be overwhelming.
For my initial setup, I’ll be using blank paper refills for my everyday journal and work ideas notebook. I also added a kraft paper refill for my travel journal and a sketch paper refill to practice drawing.
I’m already finding that having such a portable and customizable place to write will help me to organize my creative energy! And the possibilities are limitless with this system, so I can adjust it to work better for me whenever I need to.
