January Hobonichi Wrap-Up (ほぼ日)!

Hello, everyone! 💖
It feels great to write here again after so long! As usual, I’m busy with my academics and my thesis (so excited for this!)

Aside from those, I’ve also been busy filling up my Hobonichi every day! What is a Hobonichi? Well, it depends on the person using it, but for me – it’s my ‘life scrapbook’/ art journal. 🙂 I record the day’s highlights on it and practice my calligraphy, lettering, and illustration in it, too. As the title suggests, here are my January spreads!

First spread of the year! I wrote a letter for 2017 as a good-bye and my resolutions for the new year.

On the left, I wrote down some encouragement for the month. The right page officially starts the first Hobonichi day!


That’s it for January! 🙂 Phew! It was such a challenge to journal every day, but I’m glad I did. I find myself feeling less stressed and happier every time I do an entry. At the end of the day, it’s best to reflect on what you’ve done and pick the most interesting and happy memories to list down. Even if it’s only been a month, I find myself flipping through the pages and smiling – thinking about all the happy times this month. There are so many things that happen every day (from the extraordinary to the mundane), and I think it’s nice to remember them all.

What habit do you do every day?
If you have any questions (materials I use, tips, etc.), leave a comment below and I’ll get right to them! 🙂
