A clean desk, the perfect pen, a mind near-bursting with story ideas and potent memories — all that’s missing is one trusty, beautiful notebook to capture every word. Last year my sister-in-law gave me a personalized journal and my creative writing habits were forever changed. Somehow, a blank notebook emblazoned with my name was the secret sauce to make me, well, write. As soon as I realized how much I loved it, I couldn’t wait to share my revelation. A personalized journal or sketchbook would be the perfect gift for hard-to-buy-for writers and artists.
What’s your favorite type of journal? Do you use it as a place to record your personal thoughts and experiences, jot down random ideas, or do some sketching and writing?
P.S. — I also love Moleskin or Field Notes. I’m sure there are a hundred ways to simply personalize a book yourself (here’s one, and here’s another). Do you have any ideas? Also, more Tiny Treasures here.
