Well she sure found one perfect novel-writing-notes journal! Not only is this journal purple, but it has beautiful floral outlines pressed into the front cover. The pages are large and the spaces wide, perfect for my huge handwriting 😉 I love so, so much that she also included a personal note on the front page, and in addition to the journal she also included the cutest magnet which immediately went up on our fridge!
Journal Love.April 9, 2015
It’s no secret that I have a love of journals. In fact, I have an entire shelf on my bookcase dedicated to all of my journals, most of them completely full or close to being full, as well as another stack of journals on my desk. So you can imagine my excitement when I noticed that two of my favorite bloggers, Cassie from Sage the Blog and Anne from Love the Here and Now (#TRIBE) were hosting a Journal Swap!
I love meeting new-to-me bloggers – it’s one of the best things about the blogging world, and joining any kind of a blogger’s swap (journals, holiday gifts, coffee mugs, etc.) is a sure way of growing your blogging community.
I was paired up with Diane from Sweet Catastrophe. She and I exchanged emails, asking each other questions, getting to know each other – it was a lot of fun and I was really excited to go shopping for her journal, especially once I felt I knew her a little better. I told her that I love anything floral and my favorite color is purple 😉 She asked what I planned on using the journal for and I told her I hoped the blank pages of this new book would serve as free, open space to jot down notes for my writing-in-process novel.
Thank you SO much, Diane!
Are you a collector of journals? What do you fill the pages with?
