As an avid stationery geek, it is natural for me to own several notebooks and drawing pads, the number increasing as new items catches my eye from time to time. Near the end of last year, the search for the perfect planner/journal gets intense, as it will determine how I start my journaling for the new year.
I’m lucky to be living in Taiwan, where there is a lively trend of creative journaling. Stationery products such as washi tapes, stickers, journals, planners, and pen items flourish and can be bough in plenty of stationery shops all over the country. We are also heavily influenced by Japanese culture, where writing things down and decorating artistically is very popular in their journaling habits.
As of 2015, I will be using three main journals as my creative outlet: Hobonichi A6 Techo, Hobonichi Techo Cousin, and Midori Traveler’s Notebook
