As someone who loves notebooks, of all kinds, I appreciate variety in both the quality of paper and the artistry of the covers and the bindings. I don’t discriminate when it comes to notebooks, they don’t all have to cater to my fountain pen obsession. Sometimes it’s all about the presentation.
It’s true that bullet journaling has become my day to day organizational choice for both my personal life and my work life. It’s how I remember the majority of things that I need to get done, and it also provides the creative outlet that I needed in my life to keep things interesting.
That being said, although the Leuchtturm 1917 is my preferred bullet journal, I still like the idea of branching out and maybe finding other brands to use. I love the Leuchtturm, but I don’t always want to be using one.
Finding Notebooktherapy.com, was like having the bullet journaling heavens open up and start raining fineliners, washi tape, and planners down on me. So, an overall great day I’d say.
I’ve always been partial to whimsical themes, but there wasn’t much of that kind of variety available for me with the brands that I originally found for bullet journaling. Moleskin, Leuchtturm, Clairefontaine, Midori, and Filofax are all fabulous quality. They are the creme de la creme of bullet journals and yearly planners. The quality of paper they produce is far and away the best kind and nobody really disputes that.
Neither will I.
But like chocolate, I don’t always want to stick to one type. Milk chocolate does get boring after a while, shocking I know!
Notebook therapy has made it possible for me to see what the other side of the world is making, without paying an arm and a leg in shipping to have one. The below “Dream World” notebook from Jingu Stationery is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. I never knew this brand even existed until I found it on notebook therapy. And these are the types of whimsical ideas, and enchanting presentations I adore in a notebook, wether I write in it or not.
Not only is the cover beautiful to look at, but the pages inside aren’t bare. The art continues on every page. This is the kind of thing I would have loved to have as a kid growing up, and I have every intention of buying the next three notebooks in the Dream World collection and giving them all to my niece, as soon as she’s old enough to write.
I’m not always looking for the next best thing, sometimes I’m also looking for the next best looking thing, lol.
Thank you for reading!
