Have you heard of it? A cross between a scheduler, notebook, art journal, diary...the Hobonichi planner has unlimited possibilities for uses. Hobonichi journaling originated in Japan in 2002 and has grown in popularity during the last decade. I really don’t know much about it other than it seems to be a page a day journal that focuses on visual journaling, which is right up my alley. It screams Susan Branch to me - whom I LOVE!

Fauxbonichis are a do it yourself version of the original journal. The Hobonichi journals are relatively expensive and until you know if you are going to enjoy this type of journaling why spend a lot of money. Find a good grid-lined, inexpensive journal and get busy! I bought this cute green composition book at Staples for $2.99. With matching washi tape, green envelopes, paper clips, colored pens and water color pencils, I was only out ten to fifteen dollars. 

I enjoy doodling and writing. Below are my first two days of 'Fauxbonichi' journaling. Enjoy a peak into my very (non)exciting world and hopefully you will be encouraged to give it a try.

Whatever you do, have fun with it!
