"Zen of Circa" Poem
Balance is the key they say,
a peacefulness ensues.
Oh, how I longed the day for that,
to experience these truths.
But life was scattered everywhere
and paved the road with mess.
The zen of my existence
was severely stressed at best.
And then, ....illumination
from my Levenger catalogue.
That one-with-all Circa system
could release me from this fog.
I organized to-do lists,
my schedule in full view.
The notes I always write myself,
Wow, I could find them too!
Circa was my miracle,
‘Nirvana’ so to speak.
Clutter, a distant memory...
My life is now at peace.

My Circa Workflow
Here is a brief overview of the workflow I use with my Levenger Circa system and how I handle archiving non-active notes.

Handsome portable flexibility
As a person that frequently switches between right brain and left brain processing, I love the flexibility of using the circa notebooks! By using colored paper along with the white (varying the rule as well - current favorite is the annotated rule), I can call attention to parts of a project at a glance. I can do the same thing with the 3x5 cards.
When writing with a fountain pen I feel more creative and formal, but the former challenge was bleed through. I do not have that problem with the Levenger paper. Even my cheap fountain pen and ink could still be read on both sides! (I do look forward to buying a Levenger pen in the near future though).
In my opinion, the only down side is that the leather notebooks are a bit pricey for every project (although the quality is very good). With that being the case I plan to use the standard circa notebooks with clear covers as I work on the projects, purchasing the leather covers as the final "seal" on a completed project giving it the formal presentation the project deserves.
I would highly recommend this product to others and feel confident in saying its use is only limited by the imagination of the user.

Beautiful and Functional
I've always used notebooks and leather portfolios for both my day job (Chief Communications Officer) and my 'other' life (writer/publisher)... and over the years have found some I've liked more than others. But none can compare to the Circa leather fold over notebook. The quality of both the cover and the paper is exceptional (no worries now when using fountain pens). The flexibility I have to move pages around, insert tabs and different colour sheets, etc. makes keeping track of my busy and constantly changing to-do list much more manageable. I'm just sorry I waited so long to order one!

High quality product and service
It is very easy to do busy with Levenger. The quality of their products and services is top of the line. I recently purchased the Circa Leather Foldover Notebook. I love it!!!

Love the red. The only thing I do not like about this cover is the pen holder. It is big, and it gets in the way. I tried to find a comparable cover that did not have the pen holder and could not find one. Absolutely do not like the pen holder.
The pen holder also gets in the way of tabs.

...and she's very happy.
Bought her a Circa Leather Foldover Notebook for her Non-Birthday... she's a successful business woman, eternal student, and knee-jerk note-taker. She's a-swoon with her new notebook (and tiny hole-puncher) because its well made (going to last a long time), elegant (else it doesn't touch her body), an easy page turner, and perfect for a left hander. And she love's the color (red). And all I had to do was pay for it. Thanks for doing all the work, Levenger.

great for table, not for lap
I fell in love with a friend's Circa notebook and bought this one for myself. The notation system is delightful and the cover is quite attractive. I love the ease with which I can rearrange pages and the dividers I bought to go with it.
One small hitch--when I take notes from reading, I'm typically curled up on the couch cross-legged, with a book on one knee and my notepad on the other, folded back. Turns out, having my circa on one knee at an angle tugs at the page facing down, which pulls the page out! So that's annoying. If you plan on using a notebook in your lap, this might not be the one for you. Otherwise, it's beautiful and pleasant to use.

Love the product!
I purchased this as a birthday gift for my mother and helped organize it the way she wanted. She is using it as a journal to tell the story of our families history and genealogy.
My mother loves the rich feel of the book and the fact that you can fold it back to write on, which makes it much easier for her.....I am hoping that Levenger will come out with some 1.5 inch aluminum discs in red, as we will snap those up right away......
