Sad day

I am sad to announce that Gigi has passed away on 5/3/2018.  She passed away peacefully on my laps with her family by her side.  She has lived an amazing life.  She is loved and will be missed.

Training Gigi

If you haven't know, Gigi has spent most of her life training... be it agility, rally or just some tricks.  She loves it.  She loves the activity and especially loves the treats that goes with it.  And she is good at it too.  Since her retirement 2 or 3 years ago we haven't done much training at all.  However, about a month or 2 ago, I have been itching to train her again.  Mostly for fun.  But also for practicality.  Whenever we went to my parent's house she knows to go potty in the back yard.  I have somehow trained her to do that (yay.  and yes... you CAN train an old dog).  HOWEVER, whenever she needs to go out, she stands SILENTLY by the door and stare at the door.  Which is nice, but if you didn't pay attention and didn't know she wants out she goes wherever she wants.  LOL. It is not her faulty, she did ask to go out, just that we didn't see it.  So I decided to train her to use a table bell for asking out.

Current TN

My current TN is my Foxy Fix No. 1 (which is passport) wide in Sugar Cookie.  I really enjoy it.  I can almost say that this is my planner peace. :)

Etsy shop is open again

The shop has been closed for awhile when the listings were expiring one by one.  I hesitate to reopen it, because I don't know what everyone wants.  But I finally decided to add some basic goodies in there to test the water again.  Custom is always welcome.  Just send me an convo or email

Updated Planner Situation

That sounded so serious--SITUATION.  It is not.  I just want to share what I am using now. ;)  I am still totally into TN and have no intention of using EC.  However, I am changing size again.:D  I was using a regular/standard TN for a bit.  Mine was made by Peppermint Doxie Designs.  I love the cover and I was using DIY Fish v3s2, which works ok for me.  Then for One Book July, I used a DO1P.  It was actually a bit too much room for me.  Especially on days when I am not inspired or have nothing special going on.  But I do like day on 1 page idea though, just not as big.

Why I like Traveler's Notebook?

I have been using an Erin Condren planner last year and when I was using it, I truly enjoyed it and love it.  And I have always find Traveler's Notebook (TN) a bit weird, can't say why or how. But I didn't think I would want to try it.  It seems overwhelming?

So I have bought a laminator and received it on Monday and I have been making "things" since then.  LOL.

TN collection

Have been using my Standard size TN for over a month now.  And I really like. It still fits in my bag and it is not too thick.  I am happy with it.  It is from Peppermint Doxie Designs in Etsy.

Regular TN

So I finally received my ZLYC covers.  It looked nice, but it only has 1 elastic... 2 if you count the shorter one.  How do people deal with only 1 elastic?  Anyway.  The height between the top and bottom holes is shorter than the the height of the insert.  I do not like it when the elastic has to stretch to hold the insert.  So I decided I will add new holes and restring the whole thing.  I did with both the regular size and the passport.  I have included some flipthrough footage so you can see.  And you can see the difference placement of the holes (mine and the original)... it is kind of crazy.

Switching size?

Hello everyone.  This is a new week and a new month.  I am also starting a new planner.  Sort of.  I have been using my pocket size Mr. Darcy from Chic Sparrow and I have always go back to it even if I switched cover.  But I am itching to try a bigger cover. I love the Pocket, but I do miss having something bigger.  Not as big as a EC Planner though.  So I have decided to go with a Regular/Standard Midori size.  I have found a set from Amazon that has a Standard, a Passport and a pen holder.  I was going to get my mom a planner anyway, so I thought if I bought this set, I will keep the Standard and my mom will have the rest.  I am not sure how much she likes planner etc, so I am not going to drop $60 on cover + additional $ on inserts.  This will be her starter kit.  So I ordered it on 4/24/17 and still have not receive it today, it's not even ship.  And in the mean time, I have already have my inserts ready.  LOL.  And I even started using the planner insert today coverless.

New TN cover

This is my new fabric pocket size traveler's notebook from @goldstandardworkshop.  I was drawn to this gorgeous fabric.  I have purchased a back pocket and the pen loop.  It arrived quickly and I had to a bit of modification before transferring my inserts in there.  I have monthly calendar (which I just added this week), planner (@yellowpaperhouse), notebook, journal (frasizzlemade) and my sticker pocket.

Planner Peace

Last year, I was totally into my Erin Condren vertical and thought that that was my perfect planner.  It was.  However people evolve.  Though my EC was great, but then I found that it was too bulky.  I did not enjoy having to carry an extra bag just to carry my planner supply.  So I started to research a bit.

This post is an accumulation of various posts from my other blog.  This has nothing to do with planner, but I thought it would be useful for someone.  Since I sort of turned off my other blogs now.
