Watch “Midori Flip #3: April – May 2015” on YouTube

Hey guys, I finished another Midori Insert and uploaded a video to youtube. Check it out when you have the chance! (And yup, it’s one of Raissa’s inserts!)


Midori Photoshoot: My notebook throughout the last couple weeks.


As of this morning. This beautiful charm is also from the lovely Raissa. It looks amazing on my Midori. Instant love.


Reading Frankenstein at Starbucks before work. I love writing down memorable quotes.


A bit of decorating.


A page with some German tea sleeves. You can see the charm I had on it before.


One of my handmade flower bookmarks.


This one is from the beginning of the year, with Picadilly inserts and my Purple Al-Star.

Personal Studies


Last night I finally got my copy of Frankenstein back from my sister (who was using it as a prop no less), and had the chance to plow through the introductions and one of the main characters first letters. So far I’m on chapter 3, where Frankenstein (the doctor, not the creation) is explaining the series of events that lead to him being stranded in Russian ice waters to his savior, Captain Walton. It’s a slow read, but interesting and surprisingly very easy to follow for something nearing two hundred years in age. What has everyone else been reading lately?

Midori Traveler’s Notebook: Passport Black

Hello Everyone!

Long time no post, I know. Well, today I wanted to share with you a glimpse at my latest acquisition: a black passport size Midori Traveler’s Notebook! I have wanted one for some time but couldn’t justify paying $40 for such a small notebook. However, I got lucky when I found a new listing on Ebay offering this exact one for $26 and free shipping! So obviously I went for it and here it is, ready for me to set up and start using! Stay tuned for more updates, and have a wonderful day!


It’s brand new too, and came in the original packaging.

IMG_4537I love the little slip that comes with it (to the right) even though I don’t understand a lick of Japanese. (Okay, so I know like three words.)

IMG_4542Here’s a comparison of the new passport Midori with my year-old Regular Midori. Obviously one’s been through a miniature war.

IMG_4538This is practically everything it came with: one insert, booklet, extra colored elastic bands, and the cotton protective bag.

Well, have a good one!

Journal Flip #2: Second Midori Traveler’s Notebook Refill

IMG_4190I realized that I never uploaded a video of this second notebook, but thanks to my wonderful reader Althea, I was reminded and so you can thank her for this guys! Just click the picture and enjoy! (PS: Sorry for the poor lighting in the video, I only had my phone to work with.)

Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a link to the first flip video I made:

Second Traveler’s Notebook Complete

Hello All,

Would you believe that while I worked on my August Compo Notebook, I also finished my second Midori notebook. Here’s a picture of it.


I plan to make a flip video some time soon. Usually I do this on the weekend but I had work today, and tomorrow’s my birthday. Here’s hoping I have the video up Monday or Tuesday latest. Meanwhile, here’s a sneak peak.



Well, have a great weekend everyone!
