Foxy Fix Marina LP 5 Unboxing

I know what some of you are thinking. Really, Cori? Another notebook/planner? YES! Because one of the thing that was bugging me about the whole traveler’s notebook thing, was the lack of A6, Personal, and Narrow/Standard size notebooks available for cheap at local stores, such as Wal-Mart and the various dollar store chains. Yes, I’ve found lots of bigger notebooks (Wide, Extra Wide, A5) and smaller notebooks (passport, field notes, and pocket), but the main size of notebook I kept coming across was 5″ x 7″ or the B6 size. Thus my journey through the traveler’s notebook makers (Chic Sparrow, Foxy Fix, and others) started in a search for this size.

Through some trial and error, I discovered that Foxy Fix offers a Traveler’s Notebook in the B6 equivalent size. This size holds 7” x 5” notebooks, which for me, are really easy and cheap to obtain. (A major TN plus, IMO.) The color of the Marina TN is what drew me in, in the first place. And when I figured out the Le Petit #5 (abbrev. LP 5) is the equivalent of a B6 I just had to get one.

This TN showed up in the middle of #onebookJuly2016, and I of course opened it, but I didn’t play with it until August 2nd. It has no pockets or pen loop, which is an adjustment. The pockets not so much, but I have no idea how I’m going to attach a pen loop to this thing. Maybe I’ll buy a Midori pen loop.

Having a new traveler’s notebook to play with made #onebookJuly2016 even harder! Please stay tuned for Resetting the TNs post, where I show how I’ve set up my new traveler’s notebook!

    I love the colour of that notebook! I also think the way that it has been packaged is beautiful. Looks very well made too. I’ll have to go and check them out.

    Let us know what you figure out for the pen loop. You do amazing refabs.

      It really is a lot trial and error. I wish there was a way to do a library lending system for people to try out other sizes.

  7. Irene says:
