2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 36,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

2 Pokedoris from Crazy Organized

Vaporeon and Leafeon are the final ones in my Eeveelution family. I chose the basic leather for these, as the leather is smoother than the up-grade version (which is softer and more pliable). The exterior colour are Wayward traveler on both notebooks. The green colour is Golden treefrog, and the other is a custom colour.

As always, the artwork is so nice, and I adore them. I´m almost sad there are no more Eeveelutions to get, but on the other hand there´s more than 700 other pokemon out there 😉

Another pokedori, and two other notebooks

And with this Umbreon, my Eeveelution collection is complete! Although I think I haven´t shown you Glaceon and Leafeon yet? I´ll promise to do that next week. Anyways, they are all from Crazy Organized, and I love her work, not to mention she is great to work with. If you haven´t tried a notebook from her yet, I can really recommend her.

I also ordered a Toothless, because…well….my 9 yo loves Toothless. (okay, I do too, and until proven otherwise, I´m convinced dragons exist). The third notebook, where I chose to upgrade the leather and also chose pockets and a penloop, is in a custom colour. I think it is now available in the etsy shop? Winter is coming soon (I can´t wait for November to be over, it´s dark, grey and rainy, and it is my least favourite month) and this one will be perfect as a December Daily planner/album.

So, here they are 🙂

It might be dark and rainy outside, but when you get a package like this, it feels sunny anyway.

Umbreon. And yes it is a pokemon, and it is super childish to like pokemon, but I´m too old to care about that anymore ;-)

Colour on the outside is gypsy flower, and on the inside it´s wayward traveler.

Toothless <3 Isn´t he cute?

I think the inside colour is a surprise from Nicole? I love the hint of red, it´s a perfect dragon colour. And the outside colour is Prospectors river.

Set up in my chunky from Speckled Fawns

I´m trying to teach myself Spanish (following the curriculum my son has at school), and this chunky works great for me. I like to keep separate notebooks for different things, like verbs, grammar, glossary (and much much more). Since it doesn\t come with a penloop, I also have a leather insert from Yellow Birch Outfitters in there. A nice notebook makes the whole «learning something new» experience so much more enjoyable 😉

Sorry about the poor light, but November in Norway is dark and gloomy even on a good day. Tabs are mostly from Martha Stewart.

Hobonichi cover from van der Spek

I didn´t particularly like any of the hobonichi covers this year, so instead I decided to order a custom made cover from van der Spek. You can choose leathers and stitching and layout and….and….

Actually, the difficult part is making up your mind.

But eventually I managed to do that, and then the wait begun…Everything is made to order, but it is soooo worth the wait! And after paying the ransom …ehhh….»custom fee»….it is finally here!

New notebooks from Crazy Organized

My collection of Eevee notebooks is soon complete!! I was so excited when these got here, that I didn´t have time to wait until I got home, but unwrapped them in the car. A very rainy day, so the light is terrible, but the notebooks made my day brighter.

Sylveon, Flareon and Jolteon.....

I chose the upgrade for the Flareon. The leather is softer, and also more pebbly than the standard.

Unwrapping my chunkydori from SpeckledFawns

And it IS very chunky!! It has a 1,5″ spine, and you can get a 2″ if 1,5″ isn´t chunky enough for you. This one is made of a soft leather, and it marks easily, but it doesný bother me. I have another in the same size on it´s way, and it´ll be interesting to see how that leather ages compared to this one. It has 6 strings and a total of 6 pockets (including an exterior pocket). The reason for buying a notebook this chunky instead of a larger size with fewer notebooks in it, was intrigue, pure and simple. I wanted to see if this size works for me (I love the FN/pocket sized notebooks, but they wouldn´t hold enough inserts in this case), and it does! I´m taking a Spanish class, and so far, my set up works great. The edges are a bit rustic looking, but that actually suits this notebook perfectly!

Beautifully wrapped, and a handwritten note is always nice to get :)
