Long time lurker, first time poster. I thought it was time to come out of lurkdom and post some of my journal stuff since kinston seemed interested in seeing what journals I got for Christmas. There's only three (I bought more later--I'll do another haul post at some point), and they're all from my mother, who doesn't understand my obsession with journals ("Don't you have enough?") but is more than happy to enable me :D Two of them are Peter Pauper Press, and one is a Barnes and Noble exclusive. I'll probably leave them in their plastic wrapping until I get to using them so they don't get dirty or anything.

Welcome! :D
Beautiful journals, I LOVE "The Universe" one, so much so that I may have to find out how to get my greedy little paws one for myself! So do you carry your journal around wherever you go? How do you journal? Text? Drawing? Paste-ins? If-it-fits,-it-goes? What pens do you like? Do you write in different colors or prefer a single color? Am I asking too many questions? ;3

Thank you!
I snagged my copy of The Universe journal over at Barnes and Noble, believe it or not! I'm sure Amazon probably carries it too, but I buy my journals and stuff like that from Barnes and Noble (because I love them so so much XD) My journal pretty much stays at home, mostly because I have very nosy coworkers and because I'd be too afraid I'd lose it (and what a travesty that would be D:) I mostly write, but I do paste things like receipts, packing slips, magazine and newspaper clippings, stickers...all that stuff goes in there too, so I can easily look at something and remember that day, or that moment. Mostly I write using Pilot G2s but I also use Papermate Inkjoys (which I think I have every colour of) and Uni-balls. I mostly write in blue or black but sometimes for fun I'll write in green or purple just to spice things up, especially for holidays or special things! :D

Thank you! Honestly, pictures do not do them justice, especially for The Universe journal, which is just so breathtakingly gorgeous IRL! I marveled at it for ages.

All so pretty! :) I love the Old World look to them.

They look like something you'd find in an old library, or in a box in someone's attic covered in dust. I love that kind of aesthetic. :)

So. Freaking. Jealous!
...Is that your latest journal? :D

Yes! Despite having a huge back stock of blank journals, I bought this one for myself for my birthday and I've been using it since the middle of November. I've got about a third left.

P.S., I read above that you want one like it. It's Peter Pauper Press called "The Universe" so hopefully that will help you on your quest (I got mine on Overstock.com, fwiw).
