Journals Galore


Hello folks! Welcome to my blog. This post is not about Seattle, but still has a lot of photos and I’m actually really excited to write it for y’all.

Tada! I love journals. They are such a blast and so pretty and there are so many possibilities! I actually (#sorrynotsorry) bought the one that’s laying open in this photo. XD

This is one of the prettiest practical journal’s I’ve come across. It straps closed, but the binding is nice and well done so that it doesn’t shut well you are trying to write.

Another interesting kind of binding. Personally, I have a prejudice against leather journals because I’ve had one, and it’s so hard to keep open. Very hard to work with and practically impossible to fill up. It’s good to motivate you not to write.

Nice corkboard notebook. I was between this one and the previous one.

This flower one is nice and simple. Something you could take with you to work.

This one is like the first one except more forest themed. I was so tempted to buy one of them, but they were $40 each, and I didn’t want to spend that kind of money on a journal I didn’t need.

See, there are also journals like this that have suggested daily notes to take. Journals can also be writing once a day, once a week, yearly, or just random questions you can answer whenever you want. I tend to totally slack off when I have a daily journal, so I find it better to not make rules and instead stick to whenever I feel like writing or I have something to say.

Little Black Book sounds like a horror movie to me, so I’m slightly wary of these types of journals. XD

Nothing makes my journaling day like those little hidden bookmarks. I totally fangirl over them. It’s like a little present whenever the journal I like turns out to actually have a ribbon bookmark!

This is a cute pink one I found. I also really like journals that have these little stretchy closers that keep it shut.

They are not only convenient at keeping them closed, but also at marking your page on the inside when you are writing (if that book has a tendency to close when you walk away).

Sweet binding. This type of binding on journals is one of the best, most easy and comfortable bindings on a journal. I love it when I find one that I actually would find comfortable to use.

Wooden journals. Not something you see everyday. They actually opened pretty nicely, but I didn’t get one, cuz I didn’t need another one.

Journal Heaven! Apparently my Joann Fabric’s store has the most perfect selection of the most perfect journals ever. I know where I’m going next time I need one. *sighs happily*

Some Journals also have a pocket in the back cover flap, and I don’t really know what those are for because they can’t hold a pen, but I guess they are good if you have extra pages and notes and receipts that you could put in there to scrapbook later. (I don’t have a pocket in the journal that I do that in, XD)

So what makes you’re favorite journal? What makes you have to have it? What is your favorite color of a journal. Do you like lines or dots or blank pages?

    I absolutely love notebooks/journals!!!! If had more money, I’d probably have more spare ones, but I don’t!! 😉 It’s pretty much on my birthday/Christmas list each year!! 😀 I loved all the photos!
    Lines, dots, or blank pages?? Lines, definitely!

      Me too!
      I used to love lines best too. I still do, but I’ve gotten to appreciate the other types for their different uses.

    I am such a notebook person! I have over a dozen I write in, not counting ones I still have blank. I agree with Rosalyn that lines are best, because you don’t have to worry about writing in a straight line. 🙂

    So many beautiful journals!! <3 I love the pink one. 😉 I like ones that are easy to open but not flimsy. Also, polka dot endsheets are AMAZING!! That pink street one looks adorable. <3

      That’s exactly right. Not flimsy. They’re pretty hard to maintain.
      Sweet! Do you use them more for like journaling? Do you do all the fancy boxes and decorations?
