Here comes the yearly Hobonichi-related post. I always look forward to the end of August since that’s when they usually release their full lineup. I’ve gotta say that I’m not that impressed with this year’s designs since it’s just not my style or preference. But I did find several covers that I’d love to have, though.
These past four years, I’ve been using the normal A6 diary that comes with daily blank pages. But I’ve come to realize that I didn’t really have the time to fill in every single page and decorate it. This year, I’m determined to switch into their 5-year diary. This way, I will not need to buy a new one for the next 4 years and still can record the important parts of my life in one single book.
In the past, they didn’t have a special cover for the 5-year diary and normal covers wouldn’t fit since it’s thicker than the original diaries. But this year, Hobonichi released a whole new lineup for the 5-year series and I fell in love with the Search and Collect cover. It’s simple yet elegant and I simply love the color and gold button.
The second cover I fell in love with was mina perhonen’s ohayo. I’ve always loved her covers and I find myself buying one each year. I would really love to purchase this one as well, but sadly it’s quite pricey if combined with the 5-year book and cover that I’m planning to buy.
Although beautiful, I guess I’ll have to skip on this one.
I usually use Hobonichi’s ‘Weeks’ planner each year. But this time, I decided to skip that as well. Perhaps it’s because of Corona and me using my phone more for scheduling these days, but my 2020 Weeks have been neglected for such a long time that it’s so empty. I wouldn’t want to get one for 2021 if I will end up leaving it to collect dust. Haha.
I’m excited to place my order soon. Sales will start 11 AM on September 1st!
