Happy September: Exciting life events, 2022 planners and more!
Happy September everyone! Around here at Yoseka, we often refer to September 1st as Hobonichi Day! It's an occasion that we look forward to and plan for all year. Ask Ashley and Christine and they'll tell you that Neil, Soraya and I have been talking about Hobonichi Day since they first started in October of last year! But before we get to Hobonichi planners, which are now all posted on our website and available to order, we also had quite a busy month in August!
In August, we had a few major events at Yoseka. Soraya and her now-husband Connor got MARRIED and we are all so happy for them! Jane started full time at Yoseka on August 1st and she is already doing such a great job. We love her thoroughly researched blog posts and the stories she tells about stationery with them, her adorably manicured nail art, her obsession with Stalogy Editor's Series notebooks and appreciate her penchant for finding delicious croissants and coffee in the neighborhood. Neil and I also officially became parents on August 16th as we welcomed little Jacob into our world! Since it will probably be a while before the whole team is back together again now that I'm home with Jacob for the next few weeks, we also made time for a team dinner at the beginning of August. It was a beautiful moment and we always manage to have a great time together.
Of course, we also added a lot of new stationery in August with a special focus on planners. If you've been keeping an eye on the "Coming Soon" section, you've probably noticed a new planner or two popping up and becoming available for pre-order every few days. Most are available now, but Midori planners and Take a Note planners will be added too. Aside from these, we also added a ton of cute stickers, new stationery from Life, Stalogy, fun new additions from Tools to Liveby and lots more!

I just “found” you guys recently online. Don’t know how I could have missed you before but so glad we are now connected ; ). I just placed my first order with you and received it within a week – AMAZING – I could not be happier with every-little-thing-I purchased!
Now I have a challenge for you. I have a room that I use as my “studio” but I find more and more I like to work outside, while watching tv, or definitely when I go on vacation. I am looking for a portable type of system- in a soft (maybe leather) binder/folio system which would include a) clear envelopes which would fit in the binder rings to store and “see” all my stickers, paper bits, word slices etc. b)a place to store scissors, glue stick, bone folder, maybe some small punches c) tags in all shapes and sizes and d) my current journal – all in one place! I have looked online everywhere but there is nothing that accomodates the binder idea with enough spaces for scissors and other hardware that isn’t the size of a suitcase. Can you help? Any ideas for me or any products you have lined up coming in? Let me know and thank you and good luck in 2021 and 2022!
