This one comes from WickandHide on etsy. When I received it, it wasn´t love at first sight. I liked the colour well enough, but it felt…… a bit dry. And the first one they made, got lost in the mail, so when it finally arrived and it wasn´t love, I almost decided to gift it to my daughter instead.
But…I´m glad I didn´t. Since it wasn´t love, I decided to bring it to Italy with me (because, well, if it got lost, I wouldn´t be too upset). And I´m glad I brought it with me! The leather softened quickly, and is now velvety and just wonderful to touch. It feels exactly like one of my other notebooks (bought from a seller who doesn´t seem to be making leather notebooks anymore), a notebook that I love, love, LOVE (and which doesn´t belong to me anymore, because my daughter fell in love with it, and trying to be a good mom, I gave it to her). I might actually buy another one from the same seller again, maybe in green? Or pink?
So, even if it isn´t love when you receive a notebook or a planner: Don´t just put it in a box. Give it a try, and you might end up loving it ❤
