Treuleben – Crafted Notebook

I always have been a girl who loves to write, either writing articles or practicing handwriting; especially Chinese characters. In every little sign, it has a world in it, a meaning behind it. That time, using extra thin pen was a trend; all girls loved it. However, I have enjoyed using a bold tip pen to write; my handwriting words seem are written by a man. For this reason of loving writing, I also cherish all products that are related to writing. I have been starting to collect pens, handmade papers and handmade notebooks.

Since years ago, during each trip no matter where I go or how long I spend for, as long as I have time, I visit local stationery shops and try to find out interesting crafted stuff. I remember that handmade tan leather notebook I bought in Florance, some delighted handmade papers that I found in a little alley in Taipei city, oh, and a graffiti image book that is designed by a Berlin-based illustrator; also from Rome, from Amsterdam and London. Stories are handed down by hearsay, and our history and lifestyle are recorded by written in black and white. Through the years, all my wishes and plans that I wrote down in my notebooks, now they all became my memories and achievement.



On that day, before I headed out for a meeting, I just received a package; I opened a corner and saw an orange box, my Treuleben Work Life Calendar just arrived. I could not wait to open it, so I brought it with me to the coffee shop and took two pens by the way. The handmade leather calendar caught my heart due to its fine and high-quality details; the creamy paper color, thin yet sturdy paper quality that doesn’t shine through or becomes saturated by ink, coated with embossed finest leather, etc. The design of the inside pages is minimal and smart, one block for a day, and bigger and wider spaces for the weekends; it is perfect for me to use that I usually have more ideas and plans on weekends, I can write it down once I have an idea.

這天上午出門開會前從郵差手中接下了個包裹,撕開了一角看到橘色的包裝禮盒,知道是之前預訂的 Treuleben Work Life Calendar,開心之餘再抓了兩支筆塞進包包,等不及待會先拆包裹。全手工製作的真皮筆記本在每個細節上都有特色是抓住我的心的關鍵;復古奶油色調的紙色、輕薄卻不透油墨的紙質、渡金邊的紙張頁緣、真皮燙字書封等。最讓人喜愛的是那極簡的內頁設計,一天一格,週末的記事欄則加大加寬,完全符合我在週末總有許多構想、計畫時可以順手寫下的習慣。

Before I only collected notebooks and did not like to use them; however, I realized that if I only put them aside; the notebooks would never become a part of my life, they were only the decorations of my bookcase. So I could like to create my daily lives with a notebook that I love. Treuleben Work Life Calendar is more than a calendar for me; I often have interview opportunities, and I have to prepare for it, anytime if I have ideas about questions, I can write it down on the notebook. It is convenient; I can even put it into my shoulder bag. Moreover, its elegant design could be your best outfit accessory.

以前買筆記本純粹收集,根本捨不得用;後來明白,使用了才能讓自己喜歡的物品成為生活的一部份, 融入自己。那麼一本成天拿著、跟著自己的筆記本的確是該挑選不管是樣式、設計或品味都能讓自己滿心喜愛的才好。這本筆記本對我來說,不只是逐日記事規劃,工作中常面對的採訪都必須準備訪綱,偶爾突發蹦出來的點子、想法都可以隨手記下,輕薄便利十分方便,一般的肩包也可以輕鬆帶著走;就算在咖啡館、別人面前拿出來也都十足文青味呢。

2016 was a working hard year for me; I have tried to transform either myself (the attitude and mind) or the direction of my business, it is an important point for me. At the end of the year, I look back and review all; I am proud of myself; it makes me want to cherish every little moment of 2016. Moreover, I received this Work Life Calendar; it cheers me up that I will keep going ahead and achieve another aim. If I could share my experience with you, I would say: never give up, never underestimate yourself; keep going forward that there is no way to return.


At the end of the year, I would like to host the last giveaway of 2016 that is quite meaningful to me, this Treuleben Work Life Calendar (Worth 140 Euro). We write down our plans and goals, our wishes and dreams, and then we go for it. More important is, no matter how difficult and hard it will be, we will cherish all challenges that make us stronger. “Not Easy” makes fun and enjoyable.

  • 我的下一年度是一個會進入很忙碌的階段。
    有了一本筆記本,可以讓我寫下靈感,然後一步一步地實現它。想要在德國創業,所以希望自己可以寫出一份好的企劃書,著手跟IHK 接洽!(好大的心願)

    此外,我希望自己可以藉由筆記本,每日用所學的德文寫下心情。這樣才能學以致用嘛~ 😀

  • 回到校園生活 有一本筆記本少不了的 手機再方便 還是無法取代筆記本的觸感!

  • 來德國10年了,一直抱著僥倖心態使用國際駕照,一方面是德文不靈光,一方面是懶。終於去年因為一次停車場意外被警察伯伯逮到了。今年我要盡一切努力,上駕訓班練車,上急救課,考人生的第二張駕照。台灣都能開了,還有什麼難的倒咱們。勇往直前,突破萬難!

  • 目前半工半讀努力學德文中,短期計畫希望明年四月德語課結束之後實習也都能順利.再來目標瘦身10公斤

  • 希望明年可以把更多台灣優質產品介紹來德國 也成立自己公司網站!!!!

  • 希望可以把德文學到能自在溝通的階段~


  • 很喜歡手寫文字的溫度,每天記下的點點滴滴在每年的最後總會成為最美的回憶,明年期許自己能將正在學習的新知識轉為專業技能。

  • 有一本好的筆記本計畫自己的未來是非常棒的事情,讓自己對未來更有動力。
    一開始也是捨不得用,但是用了之後,讓筆記本更加地有意義了 ~
    我喜歡在上面寫滿自己曾經到過的地方或是值得紀念的事物 !

  • 非常喜歡文章裡的這句話「永遠不放棄、永遠不小看自己,就這麼以毫無退路的豪邁精神往前去吧!」

    「再度回到德國,為一段已結束的感情劃下句點,意外發現愛情另一面陽光照不到的地方。空了心的殼因為申請上德國研究所而重新注入了靈魂。收到錄取信所流下的眼淚,提醒了我還活著。不過,開心激動都只能一天。儘管德國免學費的政策讓我離夢想更近了,對我來說依舊是個需要十分努力才能跨越的門檻。辦理了延緩入學,未來在2017 年得更加用盡全力來取得簽證,然後希望2018 順利入學。」


  • 希望回台灣前德文至少有一定程度,能跟德國人簡單聊天!!

  • 希望接下來能在課餘完成自己的創作系列,並且找到平台販賣!!:)

  • 未來的一年即將開始,在工作上也許不會有太多的突破,但期許這新的一年經由這些經驗累積自己,讓自己能更快地在我的夢想框框裡再打上一個勾勾。而在我的人生中,希望可以真正地打開自己的視野,透過外地巡遊、各類讀物還有遇見各式朋友,讓自己心靈可以滿滿的,讓自己可以在創作上更言之有物、更能夠清楚的表達我的思緒。也期望明年返台時,可以將自己所學的跟自己經驗到的,分享給我的學弟妹,讓更多人看到我所看到的另一種美。



  • 在聖誕節前夕送給自己一張駕照。期望明年能通過語言考試,進入職場。

  • 一直以來都有使用筆記本規劃未來並記錄想法的習慣,當了新手媽媽一年多,筆記本從過去周遊各國的會議日期轉為小孩的兒醫、生活規劃,很多時候好想念有自己事業的那一部份。


  • 希望能克服語言障礙,學好德語在德國生活,在異鄉找到自己的舞臺

  • 希望在明年夏天來德國滿一年時,可以用德文進行日常對話。也希望可以順利考過德國手排駕照!

  • 來德國多年還沒有德國駕照,目前報名了明年上課考照,希望可以順利達成。

  • 喜歡這句:口耳相傳的是故事,紙筆記錄的是人生;這些年來多少期盼與夢想在紙本上都成了回憶與成就。



  • 要挑戰德語小說…..之前不斷地嚐試,但總是半途而癈

  • 我期許自己在明年能夠考到德國駕照以及將德語B2結束完畢,並且找到一份適合自己的穩定工作。也希望有這本小筆記本,可以激勵自己更加努力的往自己訂的目標前進!

  • 今早告别了一位认识了四年多的德国朋友,感叹生命的无常。。。四十七岁。 热爱生活,热爱家庭孩子。。最后一次的会面听她说起她的计划,她已经计划好明年一家飞美国参加侄女的大学毕业典礼,过后妹妹再一家飞来德国参家儿子的abi.. 还有明年二月丈夫的五十岁的生日。。。还有,还有。。。。 她是多么的期待与家人朋友共同来庆祝儿子的十八岁生日,她开心的预备好所有的一切来迎接这一天的到来,却也就这一天她的孩子她的丈夫却永远的失去了她。。。

  • 希望的都一樣,只要自己和家人朋友平安健康,希望的很小,但其實也很大 P.s 好幾年前收過凡寧親手寫的聖誕卡片,欣賞到妳整齊又很美的字跡,好喜歡!

  • 希望把德文精進到可以流利溝通的程度,以及在德國找到自己真正喜歡且有熱誠的工作!

  • 2016年是使我成長的一年。習慣安於現狀的我在這一年嘗試了很多新的東西。計劃趕不上變化,我被變化逼著往前走。

  • 希望接下來這一年可以進入時尚產業工作,真的對這個行業充滿憧憬!

  • 在德國幾年 ,生活一直不順心。現在有了一份又愛又恨的兼差工作,希望明年增加愛的部份,減少恨的比例! 明年取得德國駕照是必需,德語精進是必需。跟大家一起努力!

  • 希望可以找到適合自己的實習機會 以及越來越適應每天有做不完的作品的學校生活~

  • 覺得這句特別好,「讓自己喜歡的物品成為生活的一部份」,用美麗的筆記本,搭配合手的筆,寫筆記的時候心情都會特別舒暢!



  • 短期来讲:希望可以成功在澳门实习通过6个月时间学习管理专业知识,拿到推介信就可以顺利毕业!
    长远计划:希望可以学好语言,未来一年就重返慕尼黑,开始尝试找工作,尽管没有学过时尚,设计的东西,但仍希望从事时尚,衣服搭配,拍摄或谈话类的工作,尽管没学过,但我认为兴趣才是最好的老师,毕业老师送的一句话:do something in love!真正做自己喜欢的工作发挥热情与能量而不是为了稳定收入而盲从。
