A very unexpected gift

A couple of weeks ago I posted a request for Staples Rollabind notebook covers here and on the FPN. A very nice woman offered to send me her extra letter-size covers. I took her up on it. I also ordered a Pilot VP from her for my mom. I received both items a few days later, and thanked her again.

Today in my mailbox was a box from Levenger. I was quite surprised, having not ordered anything from them. Inside was a red Circa jacket and a junior-sized notebook, along with a gift card -- "I hope you can use this for your day planner." It was from the woman I'd bought the pen from!

I sent her a thank you letter, in which I suspect I gushed a little. And then I put my planner into the jacket. It fits, even with the largest-size Circa rings. My planner looks so beautiful and professional now! I can't wait to show it off to... well, everybody. Husband, Mom, co-workers, random strangers on the street... Well, okay, maybe not that last one. But still. It's absolutely gorgeous. I can't stop petting the leather, it's so soft... And I can't wait to try my VP on the Levenger paper. I've heard such wonderful things about it!

This is a perfect excuse to tweak my planner, too. I've created Daily Pages with room for homework assignments and other things, and I printed out a bunch before I left work. (I've uploaded the PDF and OOo files as a template -- hopefully they'll be approved quickly.) So now I can keep better track of things. Which is good, because getting me to put down my planner is going to take a force of nature at this point... :)

gorgeous

Looks very nice! Something about leather... can't explain but... its just... conducive to reading/writing/organizing.

I'm so glad there is no levenger store near me. I would need someone to drag me out of there kicking and screaming. Ryan would have to chase me around the shop "stop molesting the goods" ehheheh

rollabind covers

I'm getting confused about rollabind covers. I'm completely new to the system and just ordered a bunch of stuff, including a notebook from rollabind. The covers in your pictures are the same ones that Rollabind shows on their site in a picture but does not actually sell. They look nice and sturdy. I checked Staples and Target online and neither has them. Since the notebook covers from rollabind are flimsy, I swallowed hard and ordered covers from levenger. So, what's the story with those hard rollabind covers? Are they no longer available? Is that why you posted a request for them? TIA for filling me in.

Covers

They're from discontinued Staples notebooks. But Staples is apparently coming out with new notebooks soon...

The faux leather rollabind covers from staples ... are pretty much the levenger fold over notebook covers.

As soon as Staples comes out with the fake leather letter-sized, I'm getting one for my school notebook...

circa leather jacket with a belt

I have the Circa Jacket that you spoke about. It's nice! The Junior and Sr. larger version is very good. Both very quality and sits at my work desk.

Disc change

I forgot to mention that when I redid my planner I changed from silver Circa discs to black Rollabind ones.

Wow. You guys weren't kidding when you said the silver ones caught pages. The difference is phenomenal! (I had just figured that the problem was that I was using too-large discs. The ones I changed to are the same size, though -- Rolla extra-large.) I'm so glad I made the swap...
