Giveaway: Gadanke Handmade Journals

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
One of the things I wish I would do better in life is keep a consistent journal. All through high school I wrote at least once a week, if not daily, and it is so fun/hilarious to read back over the things I was doing back then. Now when it really counts (since I have kids and want to remember these times) I am so busy that it is hard to set aside time to do it and once I do I feel so overwhelmed because I am so behind that I don't even know where to start! I am tired just thinking about it all...  ha ha But I may have found a solution!



Have you guys ever heard of Gadnake Journals?? They are great! 
They are handmade journals that are filled with lots of writing prompts to help you draw out your stories. They're small enough to fit in your handbag and they have bindings that open and close for organizing stories and adding letters, photos, and postcards. Then to make them extra fun, they're filled with old school library cards, pockets, envelopes, tags, and other bits that encourage you to embellish as you go. 



Here is one of the ones I like! It's called the 
{She: Me, My Life, My Days} ~ Personal Journal





I love all the pockets and places to keep little things you want to save. H
ow fun would a journal like this be for your kids to use as they are growing up to keep a record of their life, or to use yourself to keep track of all the things and memories that you want to remember! 


Katie (the founder of Gadnake) is going to give one lucky Mommy by day... Crafter by night reader a $25 gift card to buy some of these journals!

  11. I have been drooling over her journals for months now. There are several I would love to throw all my thoughts and fun side into one of them being {She: Me, My Life, My Days} ~ Personal Journal 1.0 and the other seeking Grace. I also like the Jump book for the young ones in our family to start journaling and have the fun and love it brings.
