Mothers Day Gift Collection No. 1

Day 189/365

I’ve put together a sweet little collection of journals for all the Mom’s out there that love to write, sketch, doodle, collage and, of course, make brag books about their kids!


I know my Mom has at least 2 journals on the go all the time.  She has been one of my biggest supporters since the beginning of Sprouts Press!  So, I’ve decided to put together a couple of collections of items that I think Moms like her might like.  Everyone is different, of course, which is why I’ve planned for more than one collection, the second is coming out next week.

You can find these items online and some only in-person, for all the journalers/drawers who prefer to skip the digital transaction.  See below for details.

From the top left, clockwise;
Fancy Coptic Journal: Light green florals and distressed text with vintage button and reclaimed leather.  Has a surprise map page!  Available exclusively on One of a Kind Online, go here for details.
Fancy Coptic Journal: Colourful and gold Florentine covers with golden vintage button and reclaimed leather.  Only available in person at SpringPop, a pop up shop in Burlington: 408 John Street, Burlington, Ontario.  April 17, 18 & 19, 2015.  Go here for details.
Fancy Coptic Journal: Sweet florals in lilac and blue with matching vintage button and reclaimed leather, great size to fit in a purse or day bag.  Has a surprise map page!  Available on Etsy, go here for details.
Indigo Starburst Journal: Hardcover journal featuring hand-dyed indigo paper with ‘starburst’ stitching down the spine.   A bit larger than the previous three books, also makes a unique and gorgeous album or scrapbook.  Available on Etsy, go here for details.
Black and White Handbound Journal: A tall, handbound journal that features hand-dyed washi paper covers.  A modern journal with a mix of page papers, great for sketching or writing.  Available on Etsy, go here for details.
