It’s back!!! My wonderful Chic Sparrow Maverick in Golden Brown is finally back in my hands! Hubby let me open my birthday present two days early, so I had the whole weekend to play with it and set it up.


Recap: Chic Sparrow Narrow / Standard size Maverick Deluxe (has pockets) in the Golden Brown color, with 2 pen loops.

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but I was becoming paranoid that I might now like it because of how long we’d been apart.

So here’s my set up:

Yellow Paper House 2016 Monthly Booklet


Booklet of Daily pages, a month’s worth—my own design


Three empty notebooks: 1 cut down Piccadilly that’s become another Collections book, and a set of the Webster’s Pages Traveler’s Notebook inserts.




With all these inserts, he’s very much a “Chunky Monkey” to use Jennifer Harvey’s (Owner and Creator of Chic Sparrow) phrase.



In my pen loops, I’ve got a red calligraphy marker/pen and in the other one, I have my black sharpie pen.

I had forgotten how bulky and heavy the leather was! Even rewatching my own unboxing video didn’t help. The ZLYC leather I had been using was much much thinner and I could only fit 3, maybe 4, notebooks in it. And even then, the ZLYC was not as chunky as my Maverick. So I’m going to have to get used to the weight of this one. I’ve been smelling it a lot (fellow Sparrow owners know what I mean).

    I love to see some others who like old school planner or notebooks. I also use something other than my phone.
