Lihit Lab – Compact Pen Case

Lihit Lab is a popular Japanese brand that I’ve used for years. And as you know, at Brush Dance, we are only committed to selling items that we actually use and love.

Lihit Lab – B5 Notebook Cover

My first experience with Lihit Lab was the B5 Notebook Cover (shown above and below). I loved it so much that I bought one for everyone at Brush Dance.

Here’s some of what I love about these covers:

Durability – made with Cordura canvas, this cover is made to last. After more than three years of daily use, mine (in navy blue) looks brand new.

Pockets! OMG with the pockets!

The large front velcro-type closed pocket is large and deep enough to hold a variety of items. Right now, I have a pencil, eraser, and ruler in mine and there’s still plennnnty of room for more.

The front also features two pen holder pockets.  These pockets are large enough to contain nearly any writing instrument.  There’s also a “slip-in” pocket on the front cover to hold a few sheets of folded paper – I keep bills that I need to pay in there.

Once inside, there are even more pockets.  On the inside front cover, there are three additional slip-in pockets. These are smaller than the one on the front and will easily accommodate planning stickers, credit cards, a few folded up dollar bills, or paper clips. And, finally, the inside back cover features a flap where I tuck important papers and larger sticker sheets.

Bookmarks – two satin ribbon bookmarks in different colors – so handy!

Room For It All – Right now, I have just one B5 Leuchtturm notebook in mine, but in the past, I’ve had two with no problem.  And here’s what I’m most excited about:

Our brand new Karma Planners fit perfectly into this Notebook Cover.  Karma Planners begin with weekly spreads starting in November 2017 – and I can’t wait!! I’m planning to start filling in important dates very soon.

The A5 Notebook Cover (shown above) has all of the same great features as the B5 shown above – just in a more compact size.  This one is compatible with the Leuchtturm A5 Notebooks that are so popular for bullet journaling.

Bullet Journal Resources

We’ve talked briefly about Bullet Journaling here. It’s such the thing right now – all of the cool kids are doing it.  Karma does it. Shawna and I dabble, too.

Today, I want to give you some resources so you can learn more about Bullet Journaling and decide if it’s for you. In a future post, I’ll talk about how I use mine.

The original Bullet Journal system was created by Ryder Carroll. He has an Official Bullet Journal Facebook Page (with nearly 80,000 followers!).

Other Facebook Groups include…

Bullet Journal for Moms

Bullet Journal for Mindfulness

The Boho Berry Tribe

 

My favorite place to look for inspiration is Instagram.  Here’s a quick list of some of the people I’m currently following there, but really, just search #bulletjournal or #bujo to see the latest – it’s what I do when I’m looking for some fast inspiration.

On Pinterest, there are at least a jillion ideas for Bullet Journaling.

There are some really amazing people out there blogging about Bullet Journaling. Some of my favorites include…

Tiny Ray of Sunshine

Boho Berry 

Christina

So. Where to start? All you need is a notebook, a pen, and a short list of things you want to do today or in the future. I like Boho Berry’s series of posts/videos for BuJo newbies. Her handwriting is insane and her page spreads are perfect-perfect. That’s a little intimidating, but she’s also has a down-to-earth and realistic approach to getting started.

 

I hope you’ve found this helpful. I’ll be back soon with more about Bullet Journaling and how I’ve made it work for me and my busy days!

Leuchttrum Notebook – Red, Dot Grid

At Brush Dance, we’re picky. Picky paper people. Our Weekly Planners, for example, feature luxurious 120 gsm paper that holds up well to most types of pens. We like quality.

Leuchtturm Notebook – Blue, Ruled

Years ago, I tried my first Leuchttrum Notebook and have been using them ever since. I love all of the features – the elastic band, sturdy covers, ribbon markers, numbered pages (!!), and a handy index – but I really love the paper quality. Pencil, pens (including fountain pens), fine liners – nearly every writing instrument works well with these notebooks.

Leuchttrum – Lime Green, Ruled

In carrying these versatile notebooks, we are keeping our promise to you – to only sell you the very best items, items that we ourselves actually use.  At $19.50, these are more expensive than your usual back-to-school notebooks. However, if you are looking for a truly satisfying writing experience, Leuchttrum Notebooks will not disappoint.
