    Reading journal August 2022

    Inspiration for my August reading journal was drawn from a sheet of stickers from the brand Decotime that I had bought at Action. It featured pastel coloured stickers of cute animals with flowery crowns. All very sweet, not my usual style, but I liked this one so much I wanted to use it for my reading log. I ended up…

However, this month I’ve been trying to restrain myself a bit and enjoy the stories I read…

Since last months theme was also a non-bookish theme, I did not feel impeded to continue also this month with a non-bookish one. I picked my photos, but then had to pauze and think a while on how I could incorporate…

    Reading journal June 2022

    For my July reading journal, my inspiration came entirely from this beautiful photo that I came across on Pinterest. I absolutely love these colours! I was so charmed by the photo that I didn’t even consider that it was not a bookish photo until much later, lol. My printer printed the photo somewhat dark, but I didn’t want to print…

    May reading journal

    For my May reading journal theme, I didn’t immediately have an idea what I wanted to do. When I’m at a loss, I usually take to scrolling through pinterest and instagram for inspiration. That’s how I came across this spread from Creachick, which got my creative juices flowing. Once I kind of had my desired color palette in mind, everything…
