New journal and travelers notebook!

I very recently went on an Etsy hunt in order to look for a present for my lovely friend Daisy of My Green Cow. She loves all things planner, stationery and journal like I do and also the colour yellow. I came accross a seller called Dixie Dorie and saw the perfect thing. When it came I had this horrible inner battle...I wanted to keep it because it was so gorgeous. Of course I gave it to Daisy but I couldn't get it out of my mind!

I loved the spine on it and I loved that it had 6 elastics. I liked the colour but it was the construction that kept on calling to me. It's kinda weird because it was a 'personal' size and I have always used the 'standard' size.

So one day whilst browsing on instagram the seller posted a photo of the most gorgeous fabric that totally spoke to my soul. I mean it is just so me, so much like the little characters that I draw that I had to ask if she could make me a custom order in my favourite colour...teal with that fabric. She said yes, so I sold a couple of planners in the facebook planner de-stash group that were no longer giving me joy (I was awake when I read the Marie Kondo book lol!) in order to be able to fund it.

See what I mean! The fabric is amazing. I posted a photo on instagram this morning of some doodles I have that I will be sharing on Patreon in the form of collage and design sheets as well as a tutorial and whilst not 100% the same you can see similarities in the style and why this fabric would appeal to me. Here is the photo of my doodles:

Well it came and it did not disappoint. I thought I would share an unboxing with you so that you can see what it is like. The colour is amazing. I just love anything on the mint to teal spectrum of greeny blues ha ha! It makes me happy.

The seller also sent me a couple of other items too which was incredibly generous and very kind indeed. I absolutely love them! In true Anna style I have been busy making inserts and I will probably do another post when I am all set up and ready to go!

Whilst we talk about inserts, I was also sent a couple of inserts to share and review with you so I have included those in my haul too. Check out the video to see everything:
