I am pretty old school, especially when it comes to keeping a journal/calendar for the year. I have yet to transition to an all- computerized calendar. I still always like to see my handwriting to see what kind of a wacky day I was having when I wrote something, or I know if I put big stars around something it’s really important– you get the idea. So for the past 15 years or so I have been using a weekly planner from Graphic Image. I love the paper quality, the maps in the back, they even list important websites, 800 numbers and events around the world. I have tried all types of sizes and shapes and settled on my favorite- which is large enough to still hold important papers, but can easily fit in my purse (Leather Diary size closed: 5 3/8″ x 7 3/8″, 244 pages). It has a Week-at-a-view plus week note page (a place to write what to do on each day on the left, as well as a somewhat blank lined page to the right to write what to do for the week), & Month-at-a-view and all leather diaries are bound with archival, acid free cream paper, and contains double faced satin ribbon. Diaries are smyth sewn for strength, longevity and openability, as well as gold gilt edging. Here’s a picture of one open-
And you can see from above they come in 3 different leather styles- the Brights: in order- red, mocha, pink, lime, orange, blue, yellow–
And in Metallics: Silver and Gold, as above- and in Traditional leather (matte) as well: Black, British Tan, Traditional Red, Green and Navy.
All Styles are $58. These are only available to Blog/Facebook customers- so please email me if you’d like one- firstname.lastname@example.org by November 25 with your name, and color you’d like. Orders will be here beginning of December. If you are in the ‘hood and would like to see one in person, just ask- I have most of the last 15 years or so worth of journals at the shop as reference books for ideas, etc.
