About

Modern Travelers Notebooks and Paper Goods

Welcome to the workshop! I'm so happy you're here!

The handmade journal/planners, called traveler's notebooks (TN), fauxdoris, or doris, can be so many things! The unique feature about the design is that the fabric covers hold interchangeable notebook inserts. I discovered TNs in 2015, but had a hard time finding a modern design that fit my style. I ordered one and immediately knew I could fill a niche and not only find beautiful, unique designs, but also improve on its construction. So I worked on prototypes all summer and the shop opened in September 2015. I'm also a paper lover and you'll soon find a collection of stationery, wrapping paper, and prints geared toward creative entrepreneurs, coming in 2017!

I support small businesses and source my fabric designs from local and online fabric shops and from designers who sell their own fabric here on Etsy! No big box designs here, which means you won't see any like yours. And you're supporting lots of makers working toward their own dreams, just like the dori I make for you helps you chase your own! It's a win-win.

Our Manifesto
This is my shout out to you–hey, girl, hey–to join me in the Workshop! I welcome you with wide open arms and spray paint-covered fingers, and invite you to get your own hands dirty. Experiment, play, test, build, hammer, sew, create, list, write, make a big ol’ mess. Try something new. Make plans and dream big. Be happy. Make happy. Dress happy. As you. As darling, strong, adorable, amazing, imperfectly perfect you. xo

Frequently asked questions

Are inserts included in with a traveler's notebook purchase?

No, not with individual notebook purchases. Notebook inserts are sold separately and available in our shop in six (6) sizes. But we do offer sets to purchase! They include one TN, two inserts, and a pen for a lower price! See the "Notebook Sets" category.

How many notebooks will fit in my fauxdori?

Each fauxdori comes with one set of elastics, which hold two notebooks. You may purchase an additional set of elastics as an add-on to add more notebooks. Generally, the covers hold 4-6 notebooks comfortably without overlap, but it varies based on the notebook thickness. See individual listing for sizing and options. And message me with questions--happy to help!

The journal covers have ample space for planner goodies and a pocket or pen loop (add-ons you can order in the shop).

Do you restock fabrics?

Occasionally, we will reorder popular fabrics. Email us if you see that something is out of stock. But more often, we purchase fabric in small amounts. When you see a design you love, it’s best to scoop it up and know that there are very few that will be just like yours out in the world!

Custom and personalized orders

We love custom orders! We want you to have something that is totally you and inspires and encourages you to be the best, most productive, lovely you that you can be! Make a note at checkout or convo us and we'll make something truly unique. Here are a few ideas for fauxdori customizations:

---Add extra elastics, pen loop, and pockets to your order as an ADD ON. The listing is for one set of elastics, which hold two notebooks.

--Change the interior fabric of your TN--send us a message! (This may add 1-3 business days to your ship t

--If you see a fabric outside of our workshop that you would like us to use, we can create a completely custom fauxdori for you! (Additional fees apply and this may add 1-3 business days to your ship time)

Gift wrapping and packaging

All purchases ship to you packaged with tissue and ribbon, and we always include extra goodies like planner clips, stickers, and odds and ends to decorate your TN! It looks beautiful as is and can be sent like this as a gift.

If sending as a gift, include a message to the recipient in the Notes at Checkout and we'll include it.

That said, we LOVE gift wrapping! We offer gift wrapping as an ADD ON too {pretty packaging is really important here at GSW}! See this listing:

Care instructions

You can wash our traveler's notebooks! Remove all elastics and wash cold delicate cycle and air dry it. You may run a warm iron over it to smooth the fabric, but place a cloth or layer of fabric on top so the iron does not damage the cover.
