5 Reasons Why You Should Commit Your Goals to Writing.

1. Because it will force you to clarify what you want.

2. Because it will motivate you to take action.

3. Because it will provide a filter for other opportunities.

4. Because it will help you to overcome resistance. 

5. Because it will enable you to see - and celebrate - your progress.

Another leather cover from Monique Vanmeulebrouk

Back in November 2013, I wrote a post about the leather cover that I've gotten from 

Shortly after that, I emailed Monique to request for another leather cover; but this time, 
its for me younger sister, Xuan. 

Monique and I had a short discussion about leather cover - 
the color = Brown;
 the size = FN Size;
the type of inserts = Graph and Line. 
And I leave the rest to her creation.

I wasn't expecting anything fancy, but just a neat leather cover for my sister as a birthday and Christmas gift will be enough.

But.... my jaws dropped when I saw her reply (with pictures) on my Facebook:

Karas Kustoms Machined Pen - The Bolt Brass

Picture taken from Karas Kustoms site.
"The Bolt is a machined, bolt-action pen body. It weighs 2.8 ounces and is 5.625" in length (overall). This pen body uses any Parker ballpoint compatible refill (including the Fisher Space Pen refill) and features a stainless clip and hardware. We designed The Bolt to be fun to use and to be extremely durable. This may be the last pen you ever have to buy. Each pen is machined from solid brass, in our shop, right here in the good ol' USA."

Today's post is about the pen that I bought recently from Karas Kustoms.
Karas Kustoms is well-known for some of their machined pens like Render k, The Bolt, and Retrakt. Those pens are made either in aluminium, brass or copper. Pens made in such materials can sure withstand some heavy duty treatments. 
Some of the pens were started on KickStarter, and they've got many attentions.

Davis Leatherworks with Field Nuts Logo

Few months ago, I chanced upon Chris Davis' (owner of Davis Leatherworks) post on the leather cover with Field Nuts logo, and it got me tempted.

Since I have been eyeing at some of Davis Leatherworks' product, I decided to purchase this unique cover. 

Few weeks ago, I got the cover in my mailbox. 

This is the front of the leather cover.
According to Chris, the color of the leather should be Brown CXL.

New Year, New Leather Cover, New Systems

A Happy New Years to all my readers! 

May you have a blessed 2014 ahead, and 
your Love for notebooks grow over the days. 

Over the months, I have gotten some new stuffs; and I will review them slowly.

But today, I am going to introduce the new notebook cover that has been my EDC (Every Day Carry) for the past few week - Cody's Traveler's Notebook.

Among all the leather covers that I have, I must say, I really like this cover a lot. 

I am attracted by the natural leather color, the softness and the smell of the leather.
