My Travelers Notebook Chic Sparrow Outlander

Published by Darron Toy on



hi guys it's miss mae here this is a video that is long overdue that I have been meaning to do for quite some time now this is a flip through of my travelers notebook now I absolutely love and adore my notebook this notebook is from chic Sparrow it is the Outlander in jitney red and I absolutely adore it if you have not seen my unboxing of this please go ahead and click the description link below and watch it but I promised you guys that I would do a flick through of this beauty right here so let's just get right into it so let's take that elastic off and let's get to it alright guys so when you open it up you will see my first insert this insert is a Midori insert an actual Midori insert almost pretty much all Midori inserts just come with the craft paper and then you can just decorate until your heart desires and that's exactly what I did I love using illustrated faith's washing stickers pretty much everything in their store their craft paper I just absolutely love all their materials so I usually use Illustrated faith so when you open up this insert this insert is my gratitude insert it's where I show my gratitude every single day since and I've been doing this since January the 1st and so I just took some stickers here try to y'all I'm not gonna lie I was trying to get all like creative and all that and throw a little paint here and there and then right on top and then I'm thinking to myself girls look a hot masters it's really cute so I've seen other people do this and I'm like oh that is cute but it's like when I did it I don't know I just wasn't feeling it and so when you open when I open this up as you can tell I tried to do a little bit of that get all cute and fancy and then print off you know the work gratitude and I was just thinking to myself I don't know if I'm feeling it so I just I kept with it kept trying and y'all I did I just kind of I was like oh this is this isn't for me so I tried it but maybe it's the colour so I tried different colours and not just mm-hmm just not for me so I started on January 14th I started just writing the word gratitude and just writing what I'm thankful for that day and y'all I've been doing this every single day since January first as you can see really quick I haven't missed a day not one and I'm very proud of myself I'm very thankful that I started this journey and so we are on this was yesterday this was this is yesterday right here yesterday and I will start tonight here and I write my gratitude every single night guys every single night I don't miss I wouldn't I feel like now it's so instilled in me that like if I missed it I would be very upset with myself but it's like part of my routine of my day like I don't think of people say like how do you do that man like I can make time to sit and watch some trash TV or sit on the internet on my phone there's no excuse I can make time for Jesus that's I can make time for Jesus my next insert is my scripture writing insert now aya stumbled upon this insert December 31st on earth this type of writing on December 31st came across a blog called sweet blessings calm the author of that blog is Shannon she creates for every single month a scripture writing for every single day and she just lists the day the scripture and then we just copy the scripture and write and you basically just kind of to write about what you get out of it as well and so when you open up this insert you'll see I started January 1st this amazing quote my mom had sent me right before the new year started she sent it to my brother and I and it said those who walk with God will reach their destination which I am such a firm believer in that so with Scripture writing really what you do is you just write the date the scripture write the the the name of the scripture with what the scripture says and then you reflect and write your reflection on it now granted the first day I didn't do that because I totally was just excited and just didn't do it and then realize that's what I was supposed to do but I did start on the second as you can see what I do when I do my scripture writing I write the date in one color write the scripture in another and then I write what the scripture says this in the same color as the date and then I write what I get from it in the same color as the script name of the scripture now the pins that I use if y'all are curious I love me some ink joy gel pens let's see let's focus ink joy gel pens they're by paper me is gonna focus there we go paper mate ink joy gel whoo love these love these lovelies I did a video on these I will put a link in the description box as well for these absolutely love another type of pin that I love if I don't when I'm using the ink joys I'm also using my precise that I've loved since probably college I love these pins as well so those are my two so that's that insert and then my next insert is my monthly so right now we're currently in February this is what my monthly looks like this is an actual Midori monthly insert an actual Midori monthly insert there are so many different people that make so many different inserts for travellers notebooks that I absolutely love one of my favorites is so much crafting I'm just waiting for her to announce that she has the the inserts in at venero because I plan to purchase those I'm gonna keep my monthly but I want to purchase the weekly part this is the weekly this is a Midori as well however I'm not gonna lie to you guys I'm not a huge fan of the layout but it works for me right now so basically what I do is I have my monthly that I love and then I already did March 2 because you know Wednesday is March 1st so this is my March monthly but then I have my weekly so this is for this week everything that's in black is work-related everything else is personal and then I write my scripture writing what I need to write for every single day my to-do list which will grow as the days go on and again it's the same with my monthly everything that's in black is purse is actually work-related everything else is personal so I keep everything there organized next is my topic scripture writing in the topic for the month of March again from sweet blessings calm is Grace now I haven't done her topic scripture writing so I'm starting it you know on Wednesday so I look forward to that however it hasn't started yet so I just basically decorated my insert getting it nice and ready and then the topic is grace so of course I wrote the word grace God's favor God's favor and it says open my eyes that I met that I may see wonderful things in your law psalm 119 verse 18 begins Wednesday March 1st 2017 and I'm ready so that's that insert my next insert and again if you're wondering this is all Ella straight of faith this all has come from faceless stickers the cards the what do you call scrapbook paper all from illustrative faith next is my wallet part now with my wallet this wallet is let it's a leather wallet so it's been holding up for quite some time I absolutely love it the this section holds credit cards driver's license of course I took all that stuff out and then inside here it holds money this zipper holds coins so you can put your change in there and whatever your little precious heart desires and then I have these photo pockets as well just some positive cards that I received from illustrated faith and then of course have to have pictures of my niece and my two nephews my membership cards gift cards that type of thing personal health information and that kind of stuff health cards and all that those goodies that's in there and that's basically it now for all the goodies that you see up here these fabric paper clips come from Kelly Eva designs Kelly is the creator of that shop she has an Etsy shop I will put a link in the description box of that as well and then I also did a video on her paper clips because the quality and her shipping y'all is thebomb.com this cute little paper clip comes from pug paper company and another great Etsy shop that I like supporting very good quality as well and then these oh and here's another one in yellow from pug paper company so I have the grey and I have the yellow and then I have some in my Bible too and then lastly you'll see these clips this one says pray since you guys know that is my word for the year prays and then of course the back one here says grace and then my bookmarks down here at the bottom these are some just some heart charms that I found on an Etsy shop I'll put a link in the description boxes below as

What a beautiful notebook. I love your handwriting and the inspiration you have received from the Scripture writing. I have been doing this as well, and introduced it to my 12 year old today. It was awesome! :o) Be blessed.

Miss May, I just love your channel and spirit. You are so positive and humble. I am a planner girl to my core so I am going to have to try the travelers notebook. I pray God continue to bless your channel and that it reach the masses. Love you from another teacher name Tiffani that lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Heeyyyyy from Houston!!!
This is so AMAZING!!! Your notebook is great! A few years ago I used to do something similar with my prayer partner, but I didn't keep it up. I'm not sure why I stopped either. You've got me thinking about getting back on track. THANK YOU!

Thank you for sharing!  Love your handwriting! 🙂

Dee Pierce · May 16, 2019 at 10:20 am

Your handwriting is wonderful and the brush lettering too! I just ordered a Chic Sparrow from the second chance sale. I am doing a Lent journal of prayer and thanks myself. Agreed! Always make time for the Lord.

Real Rap With Reynolds · May 16, 2019 at 10:20 am

I liked your paintings and touches of color. I really love the idea of writing the things that we are grateful for. It's so easy to overlook the small things.

1Wise Nana · May 16, 2019 at 10:20 am

Wonderful.
Thank you for sharing Ms. May. I have the Webster's pages traveler's notebook (TN) that i use for my scripture writing. I love how you have incorporated all of your needs in your TN. Your art is wonderful and your handwriting is so nice!
I do have a question – Where did you find the wallet? That was the one thing that keeps me from using my TN by itself instead of carrying both my ringbound planner and my TN.
Thanks again for sharing.

love your blog thanks in advance

Tracy Monique · May 16, 2019 at 10:20 am

Beautiful set up Miss May! My TN is a standard Midori! I'm afraid if I try another brand, I'll love it and all of the extra inserts I can stuff in it! I currently have three books… monthly, weekly, and my prayer journal. Thanks for sharing!!!

Ronnette Comfort-Butler · May 16, 2019 at 10:20 am

I had to laugh because I see all of these cool things on YouTube and I try to mirror that…..well then I look at mine and think, what the world. But when I do my own thing…I like it so much more, because I am utilizing the gifts that God gave me. Thank you for the Sweet Blessing reference. I am doing a bible/book study on a book that my friend and former prof wrote called "The Gospel according to Winnie the Pooh". You can find it on Amazon. It is really neat to see how the Gospels fit right into this book. Take a look. Thank you for sharing your Midori goodness. You are truly a gift. God's blessings on you.

Ashley Murphy · May 16, 2019 at 10:20 am

I think it's important to find something that works for YOU when finding time to spend with God/Jesus. I was trying to do the monthly bible reading plan but it just wasn't working out for me. But I've found some more that do work for me and I haven't missed a day! I think I like to do the shorter plans vs longer ones!

Linda L · May 16, 2019 at 10:20 am

Thank you for sharing. You are an inspiration!
