our journals & you
This is a simple guide to help you get the most out of your journal.
We have spent many hours sewing journals, testing them out and then making improvements. We love journaling, whether it is planning our day, dreaming big or scribbling down our thoughts we know how important a journal can be.
Here are a few of the most common questions we get asked.
How do I refill my journal? First, pull the brown cork cord from the left side of your journal. Pull it through the holes until you can thread on another one of our 100% recycled paper fill notepads. There will be a loop made out of string on every notepad we make, for this purpose. You can thread a few of these on at the one time.
What do I use my journal for? This is totally up to you, we can give ideas but this is personal. We use our journals for many purposes. for example, our thoughts on a book we are reading, documenting our days, the dreams we have, and the memories we have made. We write down our prayers, stories, hurts and struggles. In time, we get to look back and see growth, prayers answered and dreams developed. Your journal begins to tell your story, your story is valuable and unique.
Prepped or non-prepped refill pages? We offer to prep a few of your pages for you. This will look like paint spatter on a few pages/ backgrounds and boarders that you can write over. We purposely leave some of your pages blank for you to get creative and use ours to inspire your own. Trust us, a full journal with prepped pages is extremely satisfying!
What other features will my journal have?- The extra cork fabric detailing on the right side of your journal is ideal for keeping "pocket-sized" moleskin notebooks, loose pages/photographs and memories. There is also a pocket on the right side of your journal and an extra bit of cork cord to hold your pens in place.
We hope this explains a few of the features our Journals have. Every journal is handmade with the most eco-friendly materials we can get our hands on. We know this isn't the easy option but we are determined to create a journal that is ethical, practical, personal and beautiful. We are continuously working on developing our journals and journal accessories.
We hope you love your 'rooted in love' journal, and we would love to thank you again for purchasing a journal to love, free and empower vulnerable women in our community and beyond.
love Aimee and Phoebe
