There are so many things that signify the Christmas season to various people. Everything from trees to ice skates come to mind. Poinsettia flowers, holiday lights and mittens might appeal to you or a friend. For this nano Traveler’s set I tried to pick designs that have universal appeal! The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide. Here, you can see the inside of the wraps and the inside of the cover.

Blue and gold is a really elegant holiday color combination. It reminds me of night skies, twinkling lights and peacefulness. The addition of a bright, lighter blue gives this combination a nice modern touch without overwhelming the elegance! The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide. Here, you can see the inside of the wraps and the inside of the cover. I love the size of these.

Red and green plaids are always popular around Christmas. To me, they have a “country” feel to them. I chose prints for the accessories for this one based on the “little bit country” idea! The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide. Here, you can see the inside of the wraps and the inside of the cover. I love the size of these. They are a perfect pocket size!

Ok, it’s not exactly Christmas. But not everyone celebrates the holiday! So I decided to make one that is just Winter-themed. Lots of snowflakes, shades of grey and white with a touch of gold! The berries on the cover are made of gold glitter, but it won’t make a mess in your pocket or purse because it’s sealed under protective plastic! The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide.

Another modern Christmas nano-sized Traveler’s Notebook! This time the cover is a graphic, word-based design. There’s nothing like decorating a traveler for Christmas! Oh, wait, there IS: A Traveler’s Notebook that fits in a pocket and the palm of your hand! The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide. Here, you can see the inside of the wraps and the inside of the cover.

I think black, gold and white is such a grownup, sophisticated color scheme for Christmas. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just get overwhelmed by all the regular red and green stuff and it kind of just blurs all together. This set would also work into the New Year’s celebrations because it reminds me of tuxedos and gold gowns at a midnight ball! The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide.

I want to take this time to thank everyone who’s followed my art journey over the years. It has, over time, taken various twists and turns (and even a few hard lefts and reversals.) I love looking back over what I’ve accomplished and somewhat stunned: I did THAT? But throughout it all, there are some of you who’ve been there on almost every step… encouraging, suggesting, helping and enabling.

Looking for a more modern Christmas design? I love tree ornaments and these with the touches of pink and lime really appealed to me. In keeping with the theme, I chose designs for the inside inserts and pocket wraps with strong, graphic designs. The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide. Here, you can see the inside of the wraps and the inside of the cover.

Although I made this tiny Traveler’s Notebook for the Christmas Collection, it could also be used all the way through January. The color and themes carry all the feeling of winter! The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide. Here, you can see the inside of the wraps and the inside of the cover. I love the size of these. They are a perfect pocket size!

I spent the weekend making pocket wraps and inserts for my tiny Christmas Traveler’s Notebooks! Here’s the first one. I liked the old-fashioned look of the cover design with images of Christmas seals. The inserts are just under 3” high and 2” wide. Here, you can see the inside of the wraps and the inside of the cover. I love the size of these. They are a perfect pocket size!

Yesterday, I mentioned that I was going to make another micro Traveler’s Notebook with a Christmas theme. I couldn’t make up my mind and choose just one, so I went for a dozen! Everything from Olde Tyme to Modern to Designer Chic! Today I will put in the elastics and make folders! Enjoy, Tandika* #journaling #travelersnotebook #microtravelernotebook #microsizetn #tnlife #tnplanner

Yesterday, I showed you the Micro Retro Traveler’s Notebook that I am creating for journaling. Today, I wanted to show you the folders that I made to go with it. I happen to like pocket folders. They give me places to put store receipts, stickers, washi tape dashboards (I also like those washi dashboards), business cards and other such pieces of paper and journaling things that I need to keep track of.

I have several different Traveler’s Notebooks. Some, I’ve bought and some I’ve made. They range in size from the classic Midori down to passport and I even have some that are teeny, tiny. What I didn’t have was one that was really small, but still big enough to actually journal in. So I made one. I realize it looks huge in the image above, but the inserts are only 3” high by 2” wide.

This envelope arrived in the mail last Friday! I knew it had to be from an art friend, because of how it was decorated! I started pulling off the washi tape, to save it and then I realized I should take a picture first! I covered up the address, and here it is. This is the back. The orange scribble I added to the photo because the return address was written on the flap.

All the leaves are falling quickly. It just takes a bit of a breeze to knock them right off the trees. I guess I should go out tomorrow and clean up the yard. I’ll put all the leaves in the composter so that I can start with a fresh batch of compost in the spring! Last year, when the kids helped, some of the yard decorations ended up in weird places.
