Fauxbonochi!
Friday April 15, 2016 at 11:34 pm |

Hi there book bloggers and avid readers!  I just wanted to share this new (to me) style of journaling I’ve been doing called Fauxbonichi.  It is based on a planner/journal that is popular in Japan called Hobonichi.  They are planners/journals with dates and graph paper for their owners to express their creativity with drawings, paintings, stickers, quotes, etc.  Really however and whatever they want to put in their journals.

Being that it is a bit expensive to import these planners folks decided to buy the graph paper journal by MiquelRius which can be found at Barnes and Noble for $9.95 and just make up their own planner/journal pages how they wanted.  Hence the name Fauxbonichi.  I discovered this trend on youtube and eagerly searched and watched many videos on fauxbonochi journaling.  I immediately decided I wanted to try it deciding what I liked as far as set up etc.  For now I’m still trying things out and I may decide to change things here and there but I am having so much fun doing this.

One Fauxbonich youtuber I came across was Candice Dillhoff.  Her journal pages were absolutely GORGEOUS!!!  I fell in love all of her quote bubbles and especially her swirl designs.  So much so that I’ve been trying my hand at them.  I am nowhere as good at them as Candice but so far I’ve been plenty pleased with the results.  Below is a couple sample pages from my Fauxbonichi journal.  Hope you like!

Shout to Candice for her inspiration and talent!  Please be sure to go check out her channel and subscribe!

  1. Your Fauxbonichi pages are beautiful! I love the idea behind them; I just wish I were more artistically inclined to be able to do this kind of journaling, lol. I have a regular paper planner that I like decorating with washi tape and stamps; decorating my planner pages definitely makes me feel better about all the stuff on my to-do lists!

      Hey there Lee! I’m not overly artistically inclined myself. But if I see something I like I’ll at least try it out and see how it goes. Mostly I just doodle what I’m feeling that day. No rules! You should give it a go.

      Your planner sounds like fun! I also use washi tape and stamps in my fauxbonichi so I know they can really add a nice touch to journals/planners!

    I love this idea! I don’t do as much journal writing anymore, but I’m beginning to think I need to start back. I’ve been really stressed and depressed lately.

    • Jade says:

      Lekeisha, I’m sorry to hear that you have been feeling down lately. I do know how you feel as I’ve been dealing with depression since my Dad passed and I was diagnosed with a chronic illness. It has been a LONG time since I felt like the person I used to be.

      Although I can’t lie and say journaling has cured me of this, I can say that it has made me feel better the few weeks I’ve been doing it. And while I’m journaling I feel so calm and relaxed. I think it may be very beneficial for you! If you need any more inspiration or are seriously thinking about it, I encourage you to search for fauxbonichi videos on youtube.

      Good luck hon and I hope things turn around for you soon!

  3. How pretty! And what patience you have!
