Journals Unlimited Review and Giveaway!
Gift Guide Post #10
Fall came in with a big blast today! It is actually a little chilly out. I LOVE this weather! Hopefully everyone is having a good day today.
Journals Unlimited sent me their Contacts Journal. My husband has been needing a new address book, and this is perfect! It has plenty of room for writing your entries. Not only is there a space for name, address, and phone number, there is also a spot for cell phone, email, website, work address and notes. And it is not all smashed together. Nor is the space to write in microscopic! This journal is from their Write it Down Series. They have so many to choose from. There are journals for trips, books, camping, golfing, teaching, gardening, etc. There are also some for the men, fishing, hunting, hiking, motorcycle, etc. And they come in three sizes; full size, mid size and mini. So, if you need a small one to carry in your purse, Journals Unlimited has it! Each of the journals has prompts to help you get started.
Behind Journals Unlimited:
I've always kept a personal journal to express my thoughts, excitement, and concerns for the moment and it helps me to plan and set goals for the future. Everyone experiences important events worth remembering. Whatever your age or passion, keeping a journal is a great way to capture and recall your thoughts and ideas, while recording all your precious memories.
With just an idea, the company was started in the summer of 1997. I was on vacation on the west coast of Michigan when I walked up into a Barnes & Noble book store. I wanted to pick up a vacation journal and envisioned finding a series of journals with the prompts such as our journals offer (Where I traveled, Where I stayed, People I met, etc.). There was nothing even close, only a wide variety of blank journals. Almost immediately the idea was born! By the end of the day, I had developed several titles as well as the craft color and cover design.
The winner of this giveaway will receive the mini journal called Out of the Mouth of Babes. It is adorable. It has places for you to fill in all those funny little sayings children have. There is a place for who said it, how old they were, date, place it was said and what happened when they said it. One of my children used to want to go ride biking. My husband didn't want me to correct her, he thought it was so cute. Or because we raised lop eared rabbits, one of my children looked at some cows in a field and said, "Look, lop eared cows!" We all laughed.
The full sized journals are $18.95 and the minis are $5.95. Any one of these would make a great gift idea. Get the Out of the Mouth of Babes for an expectant mother. Fishing or hunting for men. Gardening for that special someone in your life who loves to garden.
