I hope you all have a great week. This week is a little bit special for me. On Saturday, July 4th, is going to be my birthday! I am so excited. Normally I am not into celebrating my birthday, but this year I am looking forward to it. At the moment there are a lot of changes in my life and I am trying to experience the life from a new perspective and I would like to enjoy some changes. 🙂
Changes can help to find a new notebook for your daily journaling, scrapbooking or just keeping notes for school, work or for finances.
In that case, let us check the Dingbats notebook. I ordered it via Amazon (20,22 Euros) and there is a nice collection or you can have a look at their website. The notebook is a Wildlife Grey Elephant Notebook in seize A5+. It has a vegan leather hardcover with an Elephant on it which is really cute. You can choose between a lot of colours with different animals on it. The weight is 454 grams which is pretty fine for a journal.
When you open the notebook, you will find the inside cover printed with the footprints of an elephant. I think that it is a really lovely idea. There is a little space where you can write your details like your name or address on it.
There isn’t any index and the pages aren’t numbered. There are 192 pages which are waiting to get filled with you thoughts. The paper isn’t a bright white, it is more a cream white and the weight per page is 100gsm. The surface of the paper is extremely smooth which feels amazing. In the back of the notebook is a pocket too. My Elephant Dingbats has a dot grid on the pages which are a little bit visible.
I personally use my Dingbats as a traveler memory keeping journal. So I write with fountain pens, pens, highlighters, pencils and brush pens and there isn’t any bleeding. Watercolouring is the only part which I haven’t used so far.
Great is that there are a pen loop, elastic band and a bookmark. All of which have the same colour black.
All in all I can say in summary is that it is a great notebook, no matter if you are sketching, drawing or just writing with a pen.
Wisdom of the day: If you want a little wildlife in your life, try a Dingbats. 😉
