While I prepare for the Hobonichi wrap-ups I’ve missed (click here to see the latest one), I’d like to share my Hobonichi haul for next year! It took me a while to decide on what cover I’ll use for the next year, but after weeks of indecision, I’m happy with what I chose. When I got the package, I ran to my room to open it up right away (then I placed everything back to take a photo of everything, haha!)
The box is so cute! Happy 20th anniversary, Hobonichi!
When you open the box, this is what welcomes you. I feel encouraged already!
What to open first?!
First up in the haul is this washi tape I found on the site—I like how intricate it is and how the holes are pre-cut already! It will surely elevate my journaling.
Next up is this perforation cutter. I admit I couldn’t resist and immediately added it to my cart. No regrets. At all. I’ve been using it frequently ever since I’ve received it; it makes notebook page cutting so much simpler.
From the same brand, I got myself a top sheet cutter. It’s basically a cutter where you can manually adjust the pressure of the cutting. (For example, for magazine paper, I can adjust the pressure to MIN, while cardboard will go to MAX.)
This year, I decided to get the English Hobonichi. I think I was secretly frustrated when I couldn’t understand the Japanese quotes and sayings at the bottom of my current Hobonichi.
Here’s more information on the English Hobonichi.
Without further adieu, here’s the cover I picked for next year! It’s called Champignon and I like the vintage feel to the mushroom illustrations/pattern.
Of course, I also bought a cover-on-cover to protect my Hobonichi from dust and dirt for the year.
Last, but not least, we can’t forget the freebies! This year’s freebies include a tri-colored Uni pen and a Not-So-Scary Bear Paperweight (I’m not kidding, that’s the actual name of the paperweight.)

That’s it for my Hobonichi haul for 2019! Receiving this immediately makes me excited for next year—I can’t wait to journal my journey. With only one month left, I’m looking forward to finishing my 2018 Hobonichi, so stay tuned!
‘Till the next blog post,
