Paw Prints — diary

Is it a planner? Or a notebook? Could be both!

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

Scrib blogged about the Stálogy 018 1/2 year notebook/planner a few weeks ago (see here), but let me share my thoughts.

Unlike Scrib, I am a bit of a planner nerd. I do like to plan my days and I have a vertical, week to view, A5 planner on my desk where both appointments and planning are time-boxed. The Stálogy isn't really like that. I mean, it could be like that, if you wanted it to be, because the joy of the notebook/planner is that it's pretty free-form. There are markings to indicate the time, day, date etc, but they're also faint enough that you can just ignore them entirely.

Essentially, this is one of the most flexible planners/notebooks I've come across.

Pebble Stamp Kit

Posted by Amanda Fleet on

If you're a bullet journaller, this is the kit you've been looking for!

It's a set of 39 stamps that are perfect for stamping dates, calendars, days etc. They align to a 5 mm grid (so work brilliantly with the Pebble Traveler's Notebook, though any 5 mm grid is compatible, obviously!).

The combinations have been really well thought out. In the Pebble TN, there are more than enough pages to have monthly spreads, plus weekly spreads, and still have pages left over for collections or notes, making the Pebble TN and the stamp kit a perfect duo.

Let me introduce to how my diary/calendars work! I have three calendars/diaries on the go. All of them are paper. I have no digital calendars. I do note on one of Stu's gazillion digital calendars what my blog posts on here will be, so he can see what I'm wittering about, but that's the only one I have anything to do with. This is what I...

Trigg Life Mapper

Posted by Scribble Monboddo on

The rather nice chap who owns Nero's Notes quite often sends me tools, schemes and cunning wheezes for getting organised, clarifying goals and generally being more productive. It's almost like he's trying to tell me something. But when the Trigg Life Mapper 2019 thumped through the letterbox I had to admit I was seriously impressed. If this doesn't sort out the whirling vortex of chaos that next year looks set to be otherwise, nothing much will. Now, I know what a trig point is, of course. I'm a hiker, and in the far-off days before GPS this was the spot...
