Another one of my favorite products from Peter Pauper Press are their Journals. There are many, many different cover designs to choose from and they are all really pretty. There is something for everybody! I was sent on of their Small Format Journals and recieved their Sunshine Garden design Journal. I love the color green and the design is really pretty with bright colors and artsy flowers.
I love writing everything down whether it’s my thoughts or poems that I think up on the whim. I have always written peotry ever since I was in high school and it just stuck with me. Sometimes they are about real things going on and sometimes they aren’t really about anything in particular. I never just sit down to plan and think about what I am writing. They just come from ideas that are written down. I was always told that even the smallest random thought and end up becoming something or an idea. Even writing a random thought such as “do woodpeckers ever get headaches?” may even give me a bright idea – I don’t know what kind of idea I could get from that but who knows!
Anyway, since I like to write down random thoughts, or write down a few significant or insignificant part of my day, I carry a journal with me. Sometimes I even write things down that I need to remember while I am out that I know I will forget later. That’s why I love Peter Pauper Press Journals. They are hardcover! They do not have flimsy covers and they are not spiral bound. Their Small Format Journals are hardcover bound so it’s like picking up one of my hardcover novels. This is perfect for me because I can carry it along in my purse or bag because it measures 5 inches wide and 7 inches tall.
Like I said, many different designs to choose from. I also love the elastic wrap around place holder too. This is nice to keep my page or to mark something that I have previously written down so I can easily get to it later. The elastic band is really sturdy just like the rest of the journal. It has 160 lined pages. The lines aren’t wide ruled which is a big plus for me because for some reason I really don’t like writing on wide ruled paper. Another great thing about it is that the lines are pretty light. You can see them really easily when your writing but light enough that you can use the pages as a sketch book.
The paper is a little thick which is another thing I love about it. My ink pens do not blees through and the texture also allows me to use a pencil if that’s all I have handy. The paper is acid free which is a plus and the binding allows the book to lay open flat. I never noticed any smearing or smudges on the paper from pen ink. Want to know something else great about it? The journal has a cover pocket in the back so I can store things in such as business cards, slips of paper, notes, coupons and what-not. The pocket covers the whole inside back cover.
Overall, I love this journal. I carry it with me in my purse all the time. I also love the fact that with a lot of their journals, they also have other things such as thank you cards, stationery, calendars, organizers and more that matches the designs. Take a look at their site to see what matches!
