New Releases! 6 Lined Journals with Unique Cover Designs

I love creating guided journals, but this month I decided to try designing some regular journals to see what I could come up with. The results are these six lovely creations. Each journal has 120 lined pages waiting for whatever writing or journaling a person is in the mood for. The difference between the journals is just the cover, because isn’t it nice to have choices?

Here is the official description below…

This a perfect for your every day use or great as a gift. This is a 120 page lined notebook or journal ready to be used for any kind of writing, journaling, or note taking. This is also small and can fit in most handbags, packs, or even a back pocket. Journal size is 5.25″ x 8″ with glossy cover and cream colored lined paper inside.

Some of the journals like the Affirmations, Gratitude, Inspiration, and Dreams can be used specially for those particular topics, or just used for free writing or regular journaling. My personal favorite is the Inspiration journal, not just because of the image and color, but I love the idea of having a journal just for writing inspired ideas (I have lots of those)!

Here are the individual links for each of the journals in case you want a closer look.

Notes is great for note taking or jotting down on the fly ideas.

Affirmations is great for keeping track of your favorite affirmations or creating your own.

Gratitude is great for writing down all the things you are thankful for and appreciate in life.

Dreams is great for writing down your dreams overnight, or life dreams (goals) that you want to come true.

Inspiration is great for writing down anything that might inspire you, or you have inspired ideas that you want to make sure you don’t forget.

Journal is great for note taking or just a generic journal.

I went ahead and created a separate page on this blog for lined journal. So they are easy to find (because I will be adding more at a later date), and hopefully won’t be confused with my guided journals.

Enjoy!

New Release: I Feel Joyful Doing… A Guided Journal

Here is the fourth journal in the Journaling To Feel Good Series called I Feel Joyful Doing... I really, really love this journal because joy has always been an emotion I admired. For a long time, I admired it from afar. But recently, this emotion has taken a big front seat in my life.

I have found that when I focus on doing things that bring me joy, I invite even more joyfulness to enter my life. It’s part of my new focus in life in general. I do whatever brings me joy (or think about what brings me joy), and life just keeps getting better and better.

Here is the official book description…

Our emotions hold the key to a happy life. The better we feel, the better our life becomes around us. In life, we have learned many ways of not feeling well, but through consistently reaching for better feelings, we can rise above to something greater. This guided journal is dedicated to finding the feeling of joyfulness and other closely related emotions, which is a wonderful first step to cultivating a lasting life of joy, love, and harmony.

This book is now available in paperback on Amazon and as a printable on Etsy.

Also, I created a Guided Journals page on this blog to be one easy place that holds all the information about my current or upcoming journals, where you can find them, and in what formats they are available in.

Hope you enjoy this book as I much as I do!

Oh, and I recently was feeling creative and put a little book promotional video together for this journal series. What do you think?

My Etsy Shop Is Now Open!

I’m so excited! My Etsy shop is finally up! It took a little while to get the files ready and the pictures for the store completed, but it’s all done.

Even though Etsy does suggest ten items to start a shop, I settled for five. That’s what I all I could do for now, but I am working on more content. In fact, any guided journal I make for paperback for Amazon will also be made as a printable for Etsy.

So for now, I am only offering printables on Etsy. I will be offering digital journals at some point in 2021, but I really haven’t had much experience with digital journaling. I guess I’m a bit old school and really like having that physical book to write in. But I look forward to starting my digital journal journey and see where it might lead.

Right now I have the following Printables available on Etsy…

I Feel Peaceful Because…

I Feel Appreciation For…

In This Moment, I Feel…

I Feel Joyful Doing…

The Daily Self Care Journal

Each printable journal is offered in two sizes, Letter and A5, and in color and grayscale for each size, which is a total of 4 downloadable PDF files.

I really love the idea of doing printables because you can print what you want when you want. You can also mixed up the writing prompts if you want as well. There’s also the added bonus of being able to print off on different types of paper.

So if you like getting creative with your journals or just want to try some of journal writing prompts without committing to buying a paperback, then this is the way to go!

Look for more offerings in my Etsy shop coming soon!

And just a note: I just added a Guided Journal Page to this blog so it will be easier to find out about what journals are available and in what format.

New Release: In This Moment, I Feel… A Guided Journal

Here’s my newest journal in the Journaling To Feel Good Series. In This Moment, I Feel… is all about taking time to stop and enjoy the moment.

That has probably been one of the hardest things for me to do is to stay present. I get so busy thinking about the past, or dreaming about the future, I often overlook where I actually am. That’s why I created this topic.

I have been journaling in a proof copy for a little over a month with this one. I don’t use it every day. Maybe three to four times a week, but each time I do, the prompts really help me see what’s around me with fresh eyes, which is quite a lot of fun.

Here is the official book blurb.

When we take the time to be present in the moment, we step out of the constant chatter of our minds to see what really is. We are no longer living in the past, or the future, but in the now, and the now has so many wonderful gifts to offer us. We can also cultivate a deeper awareness of ourselves that can bring positive change to our lives. This guided journal is a great way to step into the moment, and regularly enjoy the here and now.

This is the third book in the series. I feel Peaceful Because… and I Feel Appreciation For… are the first and second book.

And look for two more journals coming out by the end of the month! One more for this series, and another one that’s a stand alone called The Daily Self-Care Journal.

New Release! I Feel Appreciation For… A Guided Journal

After spending a few months using the writing prompts in this book myself, and making some adjustments, this new guided journal is ready to go!

Appreciation is such an important emotion to build, allowing us to live fuller and happier lives. This guided journal makes it easy to spend a few minutes each day embracing what we already have, so to ready us for far more to come.

To start things off, I created an appreciation affirmation that really resonated with me. Then there are three basic writing prompts to dive into what it is that is appreciated. There is enough pages in this book for three months of daily use.

Below is the offical book blurb.

The more we appreciate, the more we discover that we have to appreciate. It’s a cycle of positivity that can fill our cup up so much that it can truly transform our lives and allow dreams to come true. All it takes is the consistent redirection of focusing on all the good in our life, instead of focusing on the things we don’t have. And that work can be as simply as writing down a few appreciated things each day as regularly as possible. This guided journal is a wonderful first step in that effort to gradually make this positive life change a regular habit.

With this holiday season coming up, I feel Appreciation For… is a great gift to yourself or for someone you know. And if you use it and like it, please post a review on Amazon.

Also, I am in the process of making this journal and its predecessor, I Feel Peaceful because…, available as digital journals. I will make an announcement when they are completed.

Happy Journaling!
