Limelight Sketch Book Dotted Notebook

Sometime before, I posted a review of the Limelight [plain] Sketch Book. I ended that review with a wish that they would make dotted notebooks as well. And lo and behold! 🎉 Back in January, they posted a teaser video for their much-wished-for Limelight Sketch Book dotted notebook:

2018 Bullet Journal

By on January 12, 2018

Happy New Year! 🙂

So. Before anything, a little recap of my first bullet journals (work and personal, as pictured below). 2017 has been more productive than it would have been otherwise without the help of my BuJo. I usually multi-task (even with my thought processes, so yes, I tend to overthink as well) so I tend to have a pretty short attention span and sometimes forget things. Having tasks and such written down, I could see what I have to do and therefore be able to do more.

Fuzzy Logic Mood Tracker

By on December 1, 2017

I have not posted here for the longest time about bullet journaling, despite the fact that I still am doing that up to now. Amazing, really. I have never really stuck with any sort of planner for this long–almost the whole year now, just whoa! I guess I can finally say I’ve found planner peace?

Anyway, the thing is I’m happily planning to continue with this system until the next year (which is just a few short weeks away!). And, to level up a bit, I will no longer be using a pre-printed planner, but a nice new dotted notebook from Victoria’s Journals! Excited person that I am, I have already started doing some of the pages. One such page I just finished and would like to share is this Fuzzy Logic Mood Tracker:

Mediocrity

mediocrity

Was reading old written works of mine and I can’t help feeling empty, drained and hollow. Where did my old fire go? What happened to that sass? I feel so pathetic right now compared to the writer that I was before. It would seem that it is not just my physical body that is deteriorating with time and age.

I don’t necessarily live a happy life now, though it has its sparkling moments. But the darkness that was my muse is now as elusive as the ‘normalcy’ I craved before. Instead of black, I now see in dull, boring gray. There’s nothing there to inspire or ire me enough to get the creative juices flowing.

I am not high, but not low either. How mediocre.

Review: Limelight Sketch Book

By on May 25, 2017
Limelight sketch book

Confession: This is a product of my hoarder tendencies in action. See, I already have an art journal, a ream of practice paper, a calligraphy practice notebook, a mini-tower of a memo pad, 2 dotted notebooks, and an extra planner which I also use for calligraphy practice. That is already more than enough. That is, in fact, already too much. *cringe* But no, when I saw this available at the local National Bookstore, I just had to get myself one or die of wanting.

Flatlay Hack

By on May 24, 2017
flatlay hack

Would you believe that this photo is not an actual flatlay photo but a scan? Yup, this is actually a scanned photo, with the cover left open while scanning. I actually discovered this ‘hack’ by accident since I didn’t want to close the cover and squish the binding of my new hard cover sketch book. 😉

By the way, that is a Limelight sketch book. The quote was written using the some of the tools in my post about starting pointed pen calligraphy (Tachikawa T-40 nib holder, Brause Steno 361 “Blue Pumpkin” nib, and sumi ink); the quote itself is from the book Golden by Jessi Kirby. The designs on the side were done with various colored pens.
