Anna Kristina said...

such a cute batch! I know you get this all the time, but what a great idea! And I'm with you on the rut. I actually felt the same way yesterday, then I got home and baked quiche, made pizza dough and a banana cream pie. I don't normally cook that much on a weeknight, but it cheered me up!

Bea said...

Amanda said...

I've always wanted one of these, but maybe I'll give one out as a bridesmaid gift if I happen to win...

Amy said...

I really enjoy your blog. And I appreciated your post yesterday reminding me that happiness and gratitude are choices and not results. Our family motto is "Find Joy every day, and if you can't find it, make it!" Thanks for a reminder to live up to that.

and I wouldn't mind winning a mini diary either ;)

Hi Marta ~ I love your mini diaries :) I would love to win one to jot down my new experiences as my husband just got a job in NYC...NYC!!! Coming from a smaller Canadian town, this is going to be a big change for me, but from your rave reviews about the place, I think I'm going to like it just fine :)
Thanks!

I've been coveting these mini diaries for a while now. So if I could win one that'd be SO fun!

I would love to win one! I'm partial to those cherries and polka dots. :)

Chocolate on my Cranium said...

Brilliant idea! Especially for those of us who find it hard to figure out what to write in the first place.

Sassy Sarah said...

Such adorable diaries... I need a little spring diary in my life right now. :)

P.S. I'm glad you were able to push through the grumpiness of having MORE cold weather.

Amanda G. said...

I keep a journal but have a hard time finding the time to write in it. Your lovely mini diaries would be the perfect solution!

Eeny said...

Love the idea of writing down a couple words each day because I never have the time to write a big journal entry daily. Fabulous idea, Marta.

kmh said...

marta these are too cute! a while back you were asking for ideas to do in Activity Days. i am also our wards AD leader and just love this idea for the girls to start their journaling habits. mind if i borrow the idea? (credit to you OF COURSE.) not the book, just the journal page. i want to get permission first. thanks!

These covers make me smile...especially the sweet butterfly one! The writing paper one would make a fun teacher gift. Polka dots and red rock!

These are so cute! I am generally not a wordy person, so I like the mini-diary concept. Hope Spring comes soon!

The newest batch of mini diaries is adorable, of course. I cannot wait to snap one up for a Mother's Day gift...my mom has had a rough year and I want to her day to be extra sweet this year.

Of course...would love to win one for myself :)

Sarah said...

Those are so fun - love your mini journals! I might even actually use a journal like that. People keep talking about mother's day... might need to get on that "gift" thing soon! I'm always late.
