Katharina, it’s time to start journaling again – you won! Look for the winning email and respond right away to claim your prize.
Journaling has been an important part of my daily life for many years, and while I have written in less-than-impressive journals, tablets, and even hotel notepads when in a pinch, there is nothing like being able to write my thoughts in a journal that inspires me to write every time I look at it. As my writing becomes more important to me, so does my choice of journal. I have recently started keeping my everyday writings in an Italian Leather Travel Journal from JournalShelf, and I’ve found writing in it to be completely enjoyable.
This JournalShelf journal is actually designed for travel with its belted cover and practical 4 x 5.5-inch size, but I’ve found it’s also perfect for everyday use. I have never really taken to using the large desk sized journals because I so rarely write while sitting at a desk or table. Most times it’s a lap thing. A big bulky tome just won’t do. Add to the convenient size the fine Italian leather craftsmanship with hand tooling, the warm scent of smooth quality leather, and 240 wonderful hand-cut Amalfi paper pages in an easy-on-the-eyes cream color, and the journal is a writer’s dream. This would make a fantastic gift for the writer or writer-to-be. Mine came wrapped beautifully in fine paper making the experience one of quality from the get-go.
JournalShelf is generously giving away one Italian Leather Travel Journal to a carp(e) libris reviews reader.
