It's Up!

It's UP!

After much further ado, I have finally listed Adventures in Guided Journaling:  Pocket Journal no. 1 in the shop.

This comes after no small amount of worrying fretting careful consideration about how to photograph it, how to describe it, how to price it, how to package it, how to send it, how to make sure I get everything perfectly right the first time out (which may, in fact, be impossible), and how to anticipate every possible unknowable glitch (which may also be impossible, but about which I have also spent a considerable amount of time fretting thinking).  You know, the usual.  For me.

Anyhoo, you can choose from one of four colours:  pink, blue, green or purple.  (I thought about trying to come up with less conventional names to describe the colours, but when I looked up the name choices for the hues I'd chosen, it turns out that I did, in fact, choose pink, blue, green and purple.  Possibly, the green could be also be called lime, but I couldn't be 100% sure.)

Here it is in pink with the other choices also pictured.  In the shop, blue, green, and purple are each given their proper due and are listed separately.

One thing I haven't mentioned yet is the size of my pocket journal, other than to say that it is pocket-sized.  Which, given the variety of sizes of today's pockets, is definitely open to interpretation.  This pocket journal is 4.25"x5.5".  About a quarter of the size of a sheet of letter paper.

These are the two inside photos I've included in the Etsy listing:


And finally, this is one of my mailing envelopes, which will give you a sense of what a single order might look like.  I'll be including a pocket journal, of course, and one of my business cards.  Oh, and that note card and envelope sticking out from behind?  Well that's a little extra I've created to include with each package.  It's a little something dedicated to friendship.  Something you can fill in, colour, and pass along to a happy recipient -- and it isn't available anywhere else.

Now that I've finally managed to finish pocket journal no. 1, it's time to get back to work on pocket journal no. 2, which should be available sometime this summer.  :)

hugs,
Christie

    1. Hi Kara! Thanks so much for stopping by. The prompts are new and the artwork is different than you'll find on the pages (in that I've hand-drawn all of the lettering this time.) The lightning rounds are all new, too and there is a new goal-setting group of prompts. You'll probably recognize the types of themes that are the foundation of all of my prompts, like connections with others and gratitude, for example. :)
