{Blogtober} Hobo Gifts

Back in 2017 I purchased my first ever Hobonichi. I'm not sure what it is about Hobonichi but they duplicate just by looking at them. Then triplicate. Then quadruplicate (is that even a word?)

I loved it.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about - you should probably move on without looking (your wallet will thank me!) and if you do want to know - go check them out here!

After 2017, I was burnt out and needed a break. I dialled back multiple copies to just one, a weekly booklet that comes with me everywhere and has me planned to a tee.

A couple of months ago I was chatting to a friend about possibly jumping back on the wagon for next year and she was like "Grab me one too" as I mentioned to her I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with it yet, she said she had one from this year not in use and would I like it?


Unperturbed by all the blank pages gone before I received it, I was filling it out before she even left the building.  Within the month I decided that I definitely need to return to this in 2019. However unlike last years daily writing, next year I am trying something new. 

I want to attempt a growth journal. A journal where I am growing both emotionally and as an artist. It will also be a place where I can tackle my anxiety and record reminders on how I was on that particular day, things I could change, positivity to put a spin on negative thought processes. 

I am super excited to see where this path may lead me in the coming months and into next year. 

I am super super grateful to AWESOME friends who encourage me by gifting me extravagant journals! Thanks Cath x
