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.

A Journal Habit

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.

Analogue Nomad

Posted by Stuart Lennon on

OK - So, we’re all travelling less than we were. Bummer. But - let’s see that as an opportunity. Let’s travel more locally. Grab a pen and a notebook, take a walk. In the countryside, to a beach, to a park, around the neighbourhood. Whatever is doable. Getting out is good for you. Make some time to safely get some outside time. Doing it with notebook allows you to keep a journal, write a poem, sketch something, or write the next Harry Potter.You know me well enough by now. “Grab a pen and a notebook”. As if I could ever...
