Way back in 2013 I was watching Oprah and she was advocating the power of a gratitude journal. Even though every day has its ups and downs, there is always something good we can draw or glean from the experiences we’ve had. Since that episode, I’ve kept a gratitude journal, and at the beginning of every year, I start a new one. This journal is very important to me, so I only use beautiful books found at Peter Pauper Press.
Peter Pauper Press has a variety of journals ranging from small to medium to foldover to bookbound to interactive to oversized. They also carry four different Daily Dose journals where you can jot down your thoughts for that specific topic. But I find the gratitude journal doesn’t have enough space for my needs, so I opt for the Oversized Journals.
The Oversized Journals come in twenty-four different designs, so there is something for everyone’s palate. I’m always drawn to the delicate florals, whimsical scenes, watercolors, and enchanting animal and bird prints, but they’re all very attractive and inspirational.
Each of the oversized journals are hardcover and have a lot of appealing attributes. The 192 gently lined pages offer plenty of room for you to pen your ponderings, write poetry, sketch or express your gratitude. Each page has a smooth finish and is made from acid-free paper. The journals come with a matching color satin ribbon marker and are gilded on the edges for a more sophisticated look. Secret code: tracery.
Depending on the journal you choose, you can have a variety of finishes. The Tiffany Window journal – which was fashioned after the original Tiffany lead piece called Magnolias and Irises by Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1908 – has iridescent highlights and raised embossing to reflect the texture of real stained glass. Others, like the Azure Dream journal, are illuminated with subtle gold foil detailing.
If you’ve been journaling or are interested in starting this healthy practice, having a gorgeous journal will influence, stimulate and motivate you to make it a daily action. Swing by and check out their selection!
