1. My very own dictionary. When I was studying/living in Costa Rica I was constantly writing down new Spanish words into one of my moleskines. The process really helped me learn new words. Sometimes it's funny to look back and see all the random words I jotted down or to remember at which point I learned these words.
5. Prayer book. One of my moleskines was made especially to be a place for me to write down prayers, worries and anxieties. On one particularly stressful day last summer my mom shared Philippians 4:6 with me, which was really encouraging. Shortly after, I made a notebook in the hopes that by writing down my worries and prayer I could begin to trust God more.
6. Travel journal. Josh and I will be in France this week. We have extremely limited room in our backpacks (they're stuffed with camping gear), so I am taking an ecosystem pocket sized notebook along in place of my normal journal.
Most of the moleskines I use myself are experiments and leftovers from what didn't sell in my shop. Sometimes I paint over old designs (like on the Philippians 4:6 notebook) and I've tried taping the whole thing with washi tape. Recently I discovered ecosystem notebooks which are totally recycled and come in bright colors. I'm really glad to be using more sustainable products. I've sold a few in my shop and I am excited to use one myself for the first time this week!
Tiny pocket sized notebooks are for sale in my shop right now. If you're in Oslo you can find me selling new designs at the artisan market in John Collets Plass on Sunday May 19 in the afternoon.
