hobonichi doodles

I absolutely adore the feel of the Tomoe River paper that is in the Hobonichi planner. 

So I couldn't help myself.  I've already started on my journal for 2015.  It started with the first page.

And then a few more...

Hobonichi LOVE

I love preparing for the new year because the possibilities are FREAKING endless.  One of the routine things that I do is pick out a new diary/planner for the new year.  I tend to stick with the system for a whole year {{at least!}} and change it up the next year to see what works best for me. 

Dearest Michelle at Seaweed Kisses have made me wonder about the gorgeousness of the Hobonichi since the beginning of last year {{how I held on for that long, I have no idea!}}, a Japanese planner with Tomoe River paper, the most smooth, thin, and beautiful paper I have ever had the pleasure to touch.

When the Hobonichi 2015 planners were released I uhmmed and ahhed about it for a long time.  A REALLY long time.   And then I did it. 

I ordered the A6 Hobonichi Techo English planner and the Cousin size Hobonichi Japanese planner.  And a whole lot of other accessories.

The planners were a lot heavier than I imagined but the paper was of such high quality, I just couldn't resist.  I was so glad I ordered both sizes!

I plan to use the A5 size as a daily planner and the A6 size as a journal. 
I was lusting after the forest cover on cover so of course when it came back into stock, there was another sneaky purchase from me.

What planner are you using for 2015?

love letters:: from eunice

The lovely Eunice at @thedailyroe is one of my dear, dear, dear penpals.  She has a certain flair for all things sweet and vintage and the most beautiful {{almost printed}} handwriting.  Receiving letters from her brings me such joy.  You just know that she placed the utmost care of picking little trinkets and putting it together.  Over time, I got to know her for the beautiful person that she is and I just feel so happy that I get to call her a friend.

Eunice, you are gorgeous.
