Travelling Notebook

On Instagram, I have been following the Travelling Notebook of The Travelling NotebookYoungOnesFive and was intrigued.

The general gist is Sarah started a notebook and has sent it on its way around the country, but with the possibility it could travel anywhere in the world.

She sent it to the first recipientĀ and then they send it on to someone who would like it and so on until it is all full and then returned to Sarah so she can see where her little book has travelled. Simple.

Each recipient is asked to complete two or three pages with what ever they choose, it could be facts about themselves, pictures, poems, drawings – anything!

When I saw someone share on Instagram that they needed to pass it on to the next personĀ I jumped at the chance as it’s something different to do and a chance to be creative in a different way. I love being a member of PostCircle so this is just a different way to say hello to someone.

The notebook is very apt in design with a world map on the cover, but I have to say, looking at the blank pages was a little daunting as everyone prior to me seems to be so creative and fun in their pages.

I went with my favourite purple bunting washi tape, some punched out purple flowers and a page with purple tags each containing a fact about me – can you tell I like purple? On the third page I included a little poem but I didn’t get a photo of that page.
