Community Notebook on tour #1, Europe

 

It’s here!!!

Our Community Notebook arrived from its first tour around the Europe and I cannot wait to show you what our Community members created! In case you have no idea what we are talking about here, this is a physical project that we do in our private Community group on Facebook – you can join us here, we will be thrilled to have you! If you are our member (yay!) and somehow missed this, you can find more info under Files in our group on Facebook 😉

 

 

We are using Moleskine cahier in large size and on the very first page, there is our Community Index and a reminder of what to do when the notebook reaches you.

 

 

Starting with my own weekly layout that I was trying out last summer in 2017, Michaela @betweenthesteps (UK)

 

 

The Notebook then travelled from me to Jacqui @jacquibrocker (UK) who created this beautiful monthly log. Jacqui is a writer and I think the Word column is for word count 😉

 

 

Fiona @biblio-fi (UK) lives in Scotland and was attending the Edinburgh festival Fringe at the time she got the Notebook, and thought we would love to see some of it!

 

 

Now, we are going international and our Community Notebook is leaving its nest to visit Máiréad @journalstencils (Ireland)! She captured her walk in county Wicklow with this lovely coloured drawing and some Irish words!

 

 

Here is Ulrike’s @rike.raeubertochter (Germany) stunning watercolour sketch of a lighthouse and Albus Dumbledore’s quote!

 

 

Petra @nosmartphoe (Germany) created this beautifully colour coded monthly log with a knitting pattern for autumn mittens – how awesome is that?

 

 

With the Notebook still occupying Germany 😉 we are now looking at a lovely poem ‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling, written on these pages by Saskia @kirenyalee

 

 

When Orly @orlygolan (Israel) received our Notebook, it was close to Christmas and she made a Christmas card with every Community member’s name on it (who participated in this project so far)! Love it!

 

 

Before making its way back home, the Notebook stopped at Kay’s house @kaylakama (Austria). She created this festive daily spread with a reindeer mandala!

 

I LOVE each and every one of these creations!! Our Community members are such inspiring people and I feel blessed that we can all be a part of this! I have said that the Notebook will stay with me once it is all finished, but we might do something even better – donate it to children in hospital who have to spend a ton of time in there trying to beat the cancer. This will be discussed in detail in our group on Facebook with the Community members directly.

Currently (winter 2018), the Notebook is on its second tour, only this time, we are visiting the USA!!

 

A HUGE THANK YOU to everybody who participated so far – YOU ROCK!!! ♥
