Inspiration ~ Paper Goods

One of my most favorite things is paper.  Beautiful paper.  I love a pretty print or vintage style.  I spend a lot of time in Target just staring at the journals section trying to come up with reasons I need another one.  I have quite a few prayer journals, now I am looking for idea journals and just every day journals.  But I don’t want to waste my money on one that isn’t super cute, ya know?

Here is my current prayer journal.  I don’t even know where I got it, but I love the little sayings on each page.

This is my calendar.  Another section of the store I stare at. I don’t use a paper calendar a ton, so I don’t know why I buy them, but I love a cute calendar.  I have just figured out that I need them to organize my blog posts. Yes! I have a reason!

 Now for Pinterest.  These are all the journals I wish I had…

Once again with the beautiful soft colors.  I am feelin’ this lately!
Orange and teal, my favorite.
This is what I wish my journals look like.  With loads of stuff from my travels and experiences.
My favorite.  This looks French and I love it. 
Maps and journals.  Yes please.
I love that these are not flat and boring but have dimension and character. 

Well, I think I need to go shopping for a journal!  A few I think.  But I might want to wait until I get to France and see what French vintage they have there.  That would be fabulous.

Do you love to write in a journal, the good old fashion way with a pen and paper?  I am always looking for a pen-pal, like an actual pen-pal, wouldn’t that be fun?!

    Girrrrrrrrrrrrl, you should have signed up for Hannah's Pen Friends at the Happy Days blog! I did, and I am loving my new pen pal!! Email her, I think she's gonna do another round when this one's over. And also, I will totally be your pen pal if you want!

    I love journaling as well.. I only have two though, and they're plan as can be. One is for blog notes and one is for Bible notes. I'm so boring! lol

    I stumbled upon your blog. I am so hooked now! You're on my Google Chrome bookmark bar. And that's a compliment because on very important links go there like my internet banking site or something. Anyway, I have long hair so I'm totally digging the tutorials. I am going to try some of the styles and send you pictures as you requested. Also, I still journal in fancy books. I have a stacks of them that I've collected since the age of 12. I'm convinced that my life is interesting enough that surely one day they'll be published. :P But seriously, I had pen pals when I was younger. I would love to be your pen pal. I live in Ohio, USA.
