Dear Diary…and so begins the journey of a lifetime.
Pictured are the Rag & Bone Bindery Journals that are my personal favorites from my entire collection of roughly 180 filled assorted journals.
Today I thought I would tackle Random Journal Day a little bit differently, if you don’t mind. As I thought about what to share for this last small gathering of friends, I considered which journal (s) came immediately to my mind when I thought of my complete collection.
I grabbed the two books that came forthright to my attention..there was no doubt. The beautiful crafted matching beauties I picked up in Newport, RI and filled two consecutive Summers in 1998 and 1999 are the most beautiful, well made journals I own.
But, it is more than that…they hold such a season of life, that is unique, as all journals do. A season which called for treating oneself to lovely things…not to be indulgent but to acknowledge one’s own worth. It was this for me. A beautiful journal affirms, “you are precious and loved, beautiful and valued and” to its keeper.
Join me for a video share as a page through and select a Random entry to read out loud for this final Random Journal Day.
*Please note, after I filmed the video, I popped online to see if the maker of these fine journals is still in existence. Lo and behold, to my surprise and joy, YES!
Guess who wants to visit a local journal making company? Guess, guess! I will let you know in the days ahead if I am able to share more. Wouldn’t that be the Bee’s Knees?
Stay tuned for Journaling as a Lifestyle (series) and more opportunities to nurture your journaling journey – whatever season you are walking through today!
Thank you for being here!
