I thought hilighting Kristen’s one of a kind journals would be perfect for followers of THOUGHTS on THIS ‘n THAT. If you belong to our blog, you have a special place in your heart for the written word. Whether you’re an author, would-be author or you love reading, journaling is probably part of your life. It has been mine for a while. I love to write, doodle, collect things – my journaling is kind of like “assemblage.”
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT KRISTEN
KRISTEN has been journaling since she was 5 years old, although back then it was called keeping a diary [that was 33 years ago]. She had a Holly Hobbie diary with the gilt-edged pages and lock and key. She wrote about what she had for dinner and what she did that day and locked it up and hid it so her brother wouldn’t read it. This was secret stuff! She kept diaries until high school when it progressed to being called journaling, and she filled simple composition books with her teen angst. Soon she found that there was a world of beautiful journals just waiting for her words, and she filled them almost as quickly, as she could buy them.
What started at such a young age as just a simple itch to put pen to paper slowly grew into a process that soothes her soul. She writes about anything and everything wherever and whenever the mood strikes. Anything on her mind at the time, she sits down to write is fair game for her journal. It keeps all of her secrets.
They’re handmade sewn bound notebooks using decorative paper, embellishments, distressed ink stains, brads, clips, decorative lettering and all kinds of one of a kind details!
Here’s the best part: The journals start at $20, she takes all credit cards and you get a 10%-discount by being a follower of THOUGHTS on THIS ‘n THAT!
Just go to the ETSY site, choose a journal and when you check out, type THISNTHAT10 in the coupon area JOURNALU
Time is winding down, but you still have time to order and get your journal before Christmas – hopefully! If you’re not in a hurry, she makes them to order – uniquely yours!
