Back to doodling in a Hobonichi Techo!

::INFORMATION::

I am terribly sorry that my shop has been temporarily closed again!!  I opened my shop on the 10th after my holiday, however a large number of orders suddenly came through so I had to stop accepting any more new orders.  I am going to re-open tomorrow morning (Friday, 17th) but there is still a possibility that a lot of orders will come through again. In that case it might take longer than usual to send items (it can take up to 6 to 7 days to send items).  Thank you very much for your understanding, and if you are not in a hurry maybe it’s best to order sometime later, maybe in February 🙂

While I was visiting Japan I was quite busy meeting up with friends and so on and didn’t have much time for shopping.  Unfortunately I didn’t have time to go to my favourite big Loft store (they sell a huge amount of cute stationery items!), but I could go to the small Loft store in Kawagoe city where my dad lives (where I used to live as well before coming to the UK).

At the small Loft store in Kawagoe, there was a small section for the Hobonichi Techo (Japanese day-per-page planner).  There were some basic Hobonichi Techo and some nylon covers so I bought a regular sized Hobonichi without a cover.

I wasn’t planning to buy a Hobonichi Techo as I’m using my Filofax in 2014, but I’ve actually  been missing doodling on Hobonichi’s daily pages.  I can doodle on Filofax pages of course, but I somehow really missed doodling in Hobonichi Techo!!

So anyway, I got a Hobonichi Techo and a “shitajiki”, but I didn’t get a cover because I have  a leather cover which was purchased in 2009. (Shitajiki = a hard sheet to place under paper for writing.)

So now I’m back to doodling again, yay!  In 2014, I’m going to use my Filofax for work and Hobonichi Techo as a diary and for lots of doodling!

Getting Organized for the New Year (Guest Post for Ryman)

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year! 🙂  I came back to the UK on Tuesday night and still have a bit of jetlag, but I’m trying to get myself ready to open my shop tomorrow!

I wrote a guest post for Ryman stationery store in October last year (you can read my post HERE), and I just wrote my 2nd post for them which you can read HERE.  It’s about getting organized for the New Year, and I really hope you like it!

Updating from Japan!

Happy New Year!  I hope 2014 will be a great year for you!

I’m visiting my family and friends in Japan, it’s always nice to be back here 😉   We had some sushi delivered for
lunch today and it was pretty nice.

There is a big 100 yen shop Seria near my dad’s house so I went there with my dad and sister yesterday.  I didn’t pay attention to how many items I had in my basket so I was quite surprised when I was told the total (nearly 5,000 yen!) by the cashier.  Here is some of the stuff I bought.

I also went to the local Loft store a few days ago and quickly looked around in the stationery section.  It’s a small Loft in Kawagoe city, but I could get some cute stickers and a little folder.  If I have enough time I want to go to the bigger Loft and also Tokyu Hands in Tokyo before leaving Japan 🙂

I haven’t done much shopping since I got here as I’ve been feeling quite tired because of the jetlag.  And not just that, I actually lost all the cash I brought from the UK on my first day in Japan!!!  I’m not sure if I dropped it or someone stole it (probably at Narita Airport), but the police officer said that I probably dropped it because the envelope I kept all my cash in disappeared but everything else was safe.  I guess I should be happy about that as it would have been a serious nightmare if I’d lost my wallet as well!!  Fortunately my dad gave me a generous amount of pocket money so I’m not in big trouble 🙂  I was still pretty sad about it, but my sister said that by losing my cash I probably got rid of all my bad luck for the new year so I’m hoping that a lot of nice things will happen from now on!!!
Thank you for reading and Cute Organizing will be open on January 10th 🙂
