What the Mom Prepares Garden Journal is Like
A glossy, wipeable cover adorns the 8.25″ x 8.25″ square journal. The book is spiral bound so the pages lay flat when opened! The journal is full color inside and out and is completely dateless. That’s not to say it’s plain lined paper! No! Each page is divided by days, Sunday through Saturday, with space to write notes for each day, plus extra space for general notes for the week. There are twelve illustrated pages scattered throughout the book and these are decorated with beautiful photographs and gardening related quotes you’ll love!
How the Mom Prepares Garden Journal Came to Be
(AKA Credits and Thanks)
First inspired by a beautiful custom journal I ordered from a photobook printing place, then further inspired by a friend’s blog post full of gorgeous photos and garden quotes, I decided we needed a garden journal to call our own. Something very simple, without dates so that you could start it at any time in your journey, and something that would be a real keepsake for years to come.
So, I did a little research and took the elements I loved from existing journals and posts about journaling and I gathered up some of my favorite quotes and my own photography and I sent them off to Leigh Dusek of Funky Faith Girl. A couple weeks later she sent me a link to the files and I nearly cried. It was everything I’d hoped for!
The next step was finding a publisher that would print the books as they were ordered, since I don’t have a lot of money to buy hundreds of them up front, or the time to ship them out! I researched for days before finding TheBookPatch.com and I’m so glad I did! The quality of paper and print is outstanding! I was pretty worried about using a company I’d never heard of, but I was very pleasantly surprised! Thank you, The Book Patch, for helping to make this dream come true!
