Video : Sonar – Raindrops of Rhodia Orange, Whitelines White, & Moleskine Black

10 Sep

Just wanted to share this interesting Sonar video, which is like a beautiful mix of raindrops and fireworks dancing around within the length of their sound waves. We also couldn’t help but notice that the color palette resembled our fave notebooks of Rhodia, Whitelines, and Moleskine. How serendipitous!

GTD : 10 Reasons You Should Have A Moleskine Evernote Smart Notebook

12 Jun

Moleskine fans, it’s time to celebrate – Evernote Smart Notebooks by Moleskine just arrived! We’re pretty psyched to carry the notebook revolution that connects your analog and digital worlds via your mobile device. The ultimate Getting Things Done application, Evernote 5 was recently selected as a 2013 Apple Design Award Winner, an honor of state of the art innovation. Here’s our staff’s top 10 reasons you should grab an Evernote Smart Notebook »

1. Take notes, write a novel, sketch your dreams – snap a photo – & launch them into space

Space being the internet- but nonetheless, it’s a breeze to upload your creations. You can keep all of your handmade creations from your Smart Notebook in your online Evernote account. Bin them, enhance them by combining other online resources, share with your network, and organize to a T. Sit back and watch your desktop and internet worlds collide.

2. It’s now available for iOS & Android phones with a 3 month subscription to Evernote Premium

Upon it’s first launch, Evernote’s Page Camera App was only available for iPhones and iPads, but now it has embraced the Android universe as well. Your Smart Notebook also comes with a 3 month trial of Evernote Premium with added features of the free version, like larger storage space, lock access, PDF and document search, note history, and much more.

3. Organize your thoughts

Smart Stickers are included with your notebook. They instantly tag your pages for your customized digital library. No matter how disorganized your Evernote Smart Notebook gets, you can always find peaceful organization in your online Evernote filing system.

4. Remember your faves from your everyday explorations

Next to connecting with your notebook, it also connects to your wild & interesting life! Browsing the book store or wine aisles and finding too many amazing options? Stumble upon treasures while traveling? Simply snap a shot and save them for the future. You can document the location, price, style, and anything else you’d like to record about your discoveries so you can find them in a jiffy!

5. Sync across all your digital devices

If you’re like us, you love fabulous paper. But next to your arsenal of desktop stationery, amazing pencils, and pens, you’ve also got a smart phone, tablet, laptop, and desktop, right? Not to worry, you can log in to your Evernote cloud from any device, any where, any time. It’s perfect for techies and busy schedules. Who has time for tech-syncing overload?

6. Jet-setters will love the trip planning features

Everything you need for your trip can go under the plans for your next vacation. From notes in your Evernote Smart Notebook of your dream itinerary, to online boarding passes, sketches of architectural marvels, reviews of exotic restaurants, maps, and more!

7. Collaborate with friends & colleagues

Wonderful for working long distance, in team environments, and on class projects. Share, comment, and note edits with the feedback from your colleagues. The “Evernote Lined” or “Evernote Squared” pages seamlessly transfer clear images of your notes and sketches to your team.

8. Bookmark your favorite web pages

Looking around EuropeanPaper.com on your smart phone and finding everything you’d like to have for your office? Save our (or any other website’s) pages to keep quick links to your favorite products.

9. Your dog won’t eat it*

While we’re not absolutely sure of every dog’s particular tastes, we like to prepare for the predicament of bad things happening to a good notebook. Give Fido a break and simply log on to your online Evernote account, everything you’ve recorded is safe and sound in your digital world. *The artistic blind debossed cover has such great inspiring energy and the eco paper inside has such great karma – we’re guessing your clairvoyant pup wouldn’t want to get their chew on.

10. Research like a pro

Collect everything you need for one topic – handwritten notes, plans, online articles, references, links and more into one file. Great for taking notes in classes or business meetings and combining your handwritten recollection in your Smart Notebook with an online extension for deadlines or important task dates, further online research, or highlighting specific items of interest.

Tip #1: Label EVERYTHING!

You know that feeling when you first get a label-maker and you just can’t put it down? Revitalize your office and give yourself an energy boost by picking it up again. Go through old folders that can be re-purposed, finally stick a label on that junk-box you threw together on the top shelf, and label the spines or covers of your notebooks for easy reference.

Tip #2: Start Nesting

Sounds odd, right? Nesting is basically the act of purging the things that distract you and clutter your office, while finding homes for the necessary items like your pens and pencils, folders and notebooks, and other office items. Putting things in their rightful place on a daily or weekly basis will keep your office tidy and you’ll finally remember where you put that darn business card of a friend you’ve been meaning to contact.

Tip #3: Add a Pop of Color

Whether it’s a nice, bright file folder, or the funky lamp in the corner of your office, remember to have a couple vivid hues surrounding you to brighten your mood. Try to keep all the colors cohesive though, as we’re not suggesting you work in an office decorated like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (unless you’re an avid fan). If you work inside the majority of the day, color will remind you to smile from time to time. (And don’t forget to actually pop out for a walk around the block a couple times a day – nothing is better than exercise and a bit of fresh air.)

Small Business Expenses Solution: The Moleskine Daily Planner Set

11 Jan

I’m always trying to balance the digital part of my life with my penchant for low-tech, traditional paper and pen. As a freelance writer and web content marketer, that means I’ve tried just about every system coming and going – both digital and paper.

No matter what I do, I end up at the end of the year, sorting through receipts, checking all my notebooks for scribbles on mileage and lunch meetings, and scouring my email for automatic payments on business bills. It’s humbling, if not downright depressing. It also takes three or four days and I’m in such a foul mood everyone cuts me a HUGE path. For years, “I’m working on taxes” was the only thing I could say that would actually strike terror into my children and make them quiet and cautious.

For 2013, I’m taking a new path. I’m going to use the 2013 Moleskine Daily Planner Set.

More to Love; Less to Carry

I like keeping a notebook with me all the time to capture ideas, snippets of conversations, and general information I may need to reference later. The problem is, I usually go out without what I need because I don’t like to carry too much when I leave the house. The smaller size of a pocket planner solves that as it is small enough to fit in my purse (so I’ll always have it with me), yet big enough for my ideas to fill it up before returning it to the binder set.

Why This Will Work

The Moleskine Daily Planner Set meets my needs beautifully by giving me a new daily planner each month with a full page per day for jotting down mileage AS it’s HAPPENING in one place, automatic payments that hit my account, automatic withdrawals to pay bills, who I meet for a business lunch and what we discuss, and I can even record those little office supplies I pick up while I’m out doing personal shopping.

I only wish each month had the expandable pocket in the back to hold those pesky little receipts that are so easy to lose. Since they don’t come with one, I’ll be adding them to each volume myself.

Once the month is over, I’ll return the book to the binder and take out a new one. At the end of the year, I’ll have a complete set outlining my year in business in one convenient place. And I’ll have a written record should I ever get audited (without having to scour my computer system and pull together old files).

My income tracking is handled online (I use Cashboard and love it). I can pull a year-end report and have all the invoicing and payment information in a flash because I do all my billing through that one online system and all my clients pay online. It’s the little expenses here and there, the daily stuff, that make me crazy. I’m confident the Moleskine Daily Planner Set should solve the problem.

Why My Other Systems Didn’t Work

I like a paper version of bookkeeping records – it’s faster to jot down expenses than to power up a computer and open a program to do it – but never could remember to carry my record book with me everywhere (and didn’t want to, since it was so big). I’d also forget to log items when I returned to the office, meaning I’d lose business expenses deductions every year to my faulty system. It also means I always felt like I was playing “catch up.”

I’ve tried phone apps and tablet apps and computer apps. They were always too time-intensive to set up, too awkward to use on the run, or too focused in their application (meaning they would only track mileage and I’d have to open another app to do meals and another to do miscellaneous business expenses like office supplies, professional subscriptions and equipment). The few that showed promise invariably crashed and lost several months worth of data that cost me more time to recover and/or research all over again than they were worth. It also made my language get a little too colorful for comfort. Granted, today’s digital systems and “cloud” backups mean this happens less, but I’ve been burned too many times, now. No thank you.

What I need is a single, portable place to dump and store all my information. I love the fact that this page-a-day format will eliminate my need to write the date of each purchase. I know that’s a little thing, but it irks me. With these monthly volumes, I’ll jot down what it was, how much it was, and where I bought it – and list the project if it’s for a specific client – then slip the receipt in the (soon to be) homemade back pocket.

I Want a SIMPLE System

I can’t wait to get my set to begin my new system. It’s currently on order so I can start the year right – and of course the planner set will be the first items listed in my business expenses for January! I’m going to be so organized and efficient this year! (And I won’t have to lug around a huge book to accomplish it – just a single slender monthly volume.)

The ONLY thing that could make it better would be a built-in back pocket per notebook and access to a set that was varying shades of purple instead of rainbow colors … but that’s just me.
