Lars for Promptly Journals

I’ve been an avid journal writer since I was young and I’ve amassed a collection of over 50 journals since then! When I was pregnant, my designer, Becca, gifted me a Promptly Journal Childhood History Journal and I was so touched. I had been searching for a baby journal that was both beautiful, helpful, and not too complicated. It was perfect! I immediately started writing in it and have been active ever since. Now that I’ve had Jasper and my memory has become a thing of the past (mom brain is ever so real), I find myself clinging onto every single detail of Jasper’s life because I just don’t remember anymore! If you don’t write it down, it’s as if it never existed.

As a genuine fan of the product, I am thrilled to partner with Promptly Journals on our very own collection. Their journals document your child’s history from birth until 18-years-old. The first year is the most detailed, as there are all those fun statistics and milestones that you want to capture. The following years are a bit more streamlined and highlight the most important moments. We added in our own beautiful marbling on the packaging and interior end pages and, if I do say so myself, I think it’s pretty beautiful 😉

I’m obviously a huge fan of color so I wanted to create a fresh palette while keeping an heirloom quality about the journals. You can choose between four linen color options: Blush, Chambray, Wheat, and Eggshell. The inside cover is lined with a beautiful muted rainbow marble to give it a special touch.

The prompts help guide you along, asking meaningful questions that you’ll truly treasure for years down the road. Sometimes it’s difficult to know exactly what to document. Some can end up under-sharing, others struggle with oversharing! Promptly provides the perfect balance, allowing you to easily capture and describe specific memories. If you’re not a natural journaler, these are a great solution.

My Life In Color

My Life In Color prompted journal

We’ve been hinting about it here and there, but the secret is finally out!

We’ve released a vibrant collection of rainbow journals and notebooks and they are out TODAY! The collection features three designs including a guided journal titled, My Life In Color, a companion book to Craft the Rainbow, and a softcover blank striped notebook and blank hardcover marbled journal. With a hint of metallic gold and lovely textures, they just might be the prettiest journals you’ve ever laid eyes on. In my humble opinion, of course 😉 My Life In Color prompted journal

Like Craft the Rainbow, My Life In Color features 9 chapters divided by color and asks a series of questions based on color, your experiences with color, and associations with color. It’s hardcover and once you take off the dust jacket you’re in for a real treat, because it features an exposed binding showing off the gorgeous colors of the rainbow.

I’ve always been a color fanatic and have very vivid memories–good or bad–of specific items and rooms. Don’t you? For example:

I remember a burgundy sweatshirt that I wanted to badly when I was young. It was the 90s so it was very much a color of the moment. That, combined with a navy blue and a forest green, and you were SET! I added some classic 90s leggings and an oversized t-shirt and wore that thing out.

I also remember my bicycle that I got for Christmas when I was 10. It wasn’t sitting under the Christmas tree and I was so sad. My dad asked me to go get him a fork from the kitchen and there it was in all her glory. My Huffy White Heat bicycle. She was white with grey speckles on her and she was beautiful. I broke her after only 2 days and we went back to the store to get another and a replacement was nowhere to be found. We called every location in Southern California and no dice. My replacement was a blue and pink combo and I couldn’t STAND the color of the blue or the pink. To this day, those shades give me the icks.

I created this journal because one of the best parts in creating the Craft the Rainbow were the personal anecdotes of each craft and color, but I’m aware–not everyone loves to craft. I GET IT! But! EVERYONE has memories of color and this is a great way to capture those memories and impressions.

Take a look:

I know, guys! We all like color in some way!

BUT, what do we all need even more? Just a plain ‘ole notebook, and we’ve got two of them! One is a plain notebook.

And the other is blank journal.My Life In Color prompted journal

The blank notebook is softcover in lovely texture. The journal is hardcover and has a gorgeously exposed binding, Isn’t it beautiful?! I love seeing the complete collection of books. From those who love to craft, those who love to journal, and those who love to keep notes and doodle. We can now offer something for everyone!

You can shop the collection in various combinations from our Shop here.

I’d love to hear what YOUR favorite color is and why. Please share using the hashtag #MyLifeInColorBook or #HueAreYou

Some of our favorite bloggers and Instagrammers are sharing their favorite colors. We’ll be sharing about them over the next couple of weeks. And stay tuned for a month of color-themed projects and posts, a color combination for each week!
