For Fun!

I found these darling little journals at Etsy.com. They are made on European paper and come in a variety of colors. Each journal includes fun sayings and inspirational writing prompts, and many of them include fun little pockets and mini envelopes. I have one of them at home, and it fits perfectly in my purse!


Go take a peek - mine arrived in only two days!

I'm not even sure what I'd do with it, but I want one!

I want one! I'm adding this to my shopping list for Friday (payday)! I can't wait to have purple one of my own.

Thanks Shannon!

Summer said...

Awesome! I love writing journals!!! Etsy is so amazing!

Tracy said...

Those are so cute! I keep away from Etsy because I have no self control once I'm exposed to all sorts of homemade, crafty goodness. The last time I was browsing, I ended up with a dozen things in my cart...

Mary Aalgaard said...

I have journal envy.

Sheri Larsenッ said...

Those are great! My eleven-year-old daughter would love them!! Thanks for sharing.

Emily Ann Benedict said...

Talli Roland said...

Oooh... beautiful! Etsy rocks.

Stephanie said...

CUTE! Etsy is really awesome!! I used to sell hand-made bachelorette party veils on there. I did pretty well...but I couldn't get proper supplies anymore so I had to stop :(

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

The look so cute! Really puts my boring leather notebook to shame...

Michelle McLean said...

Love them! May have to get a couple :D

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

How cute. What a fun little notebook to keep handy for those writer's notes.

Helen Ginger said...

Cute and I like that they're small. I bought some etsy books for Christmas presents - journals and crazy folding photo albums.

I love journals!!! Especially little ones that fit in my purse! So cute! Thanks for the link Shannon!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

If any of you get one (or more) let me know. I'm curious about which ones you'll choose. :-)

Heather Zundel said...

Etsy is bad addiction. So many pretty things, so little money to buy them with.

Susan Quinn said...

Cute! Only problem is my purse is about 1/2 the size of the notebook.

Roxane B. Salonen said...

My only fear is that I might think they are too pretty to scribble in. :) Is there such a thing as a journal that is pretty or cute enough to trigger journal trepidation? Oh, but they ARE lovely. I wish you well in filling them with awesome words!

Bish Denham said...

Oh you would have to show me something like that, me how has this "thing" about notebooks...and this one is so...so...just the right size! GAK!

Cynde L. Hammond said...

Hi, Shannon!

Those little journals are SO CUTE! The ETSY Co. sure has a lot of adorable stuff, don't they?

My husband says we'll probably go broke if I keep buying little trinkets, little journals, and "little" things. LOL! (He's just kidding.)

I'm just a sucker for "little" things, that's all. I got the cutest "little" Bible the other day. It's a compact Bible that's amazing! It's large print Bible that is 6 1/2H x 4 3/4W x 1 1/4D -- plus it's got a real leather cover and it's a red-letter edition, too. It fits right in my purse and I can take it with me wherever I go.

By the way...thanks for "following" my blog. I really appreciate it and I have signed up to "follow" you back. WOW--I wish I knew the secret on how to get so many followers. It's like pulling teeth with me. Maybe I don't put anything very exciting in my blog, I don't know. Got any suggestions for me?

Talk to you soon,
Cynde

There is nothing like having the perfect notebook for inspiring your writing.
Thank you for dropping by and following it was a nice surprise when I finally dunked my paintbrush into white, very white, spirit. ;)

Those journals are just begging for words!

Kjersten Hayes, whom I met last year at SCBWI Western Washington Conference, also makes incredible journals for Etsy. She's in Malaysia now, but check out her blog for great art and the stories behind it:

I'm salivating! Must have!

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

Oh I love these things. I could waste so much money on stationary. Is that how you spell stationary? Hmmm, I don't think I've ever actually written that word before. LOL

Mary_not_Martha said...

I'm an Etsy seller/addict. I think every penny I earn on there I spend on there! I ordered the pink one. They only had one listed though, hopefully they relisted that color. Thanks for sharing the find and for supporing their Etsy shop!

Mary McDonald said...

Those are so cute! What's European paper though? Is it different somehow?

Alyson said...

Etsy is so fun! Thanks for sharing your finds!

Curse you! Know ye not my addiction to all things office related?! Doom! Doom and peril to me!
(j/k. Although seriously, I will have to get my hands on one of those...)
