uglygirl said...

My first sentence would be, "I won this gorgeous journal from gorgeous Loveology."

uglygirl said...

I have many journals for many things but the one I use every day is a "365" journal by kikki.K, which has 365 numbered pages (http://www.kikki-k.com/shop/product/365-days/). I use it to collect paper ephemera and my observations of each day. I also stick in the tear outs from my Present & Correct stamp sheet calendar (http://www.presentandcorrect.com/item.php?item_id=638&page=5&category_id=3).

ब्रह्मकमळ said...

My favourite is the Journal Pilots. It's so pretty!

ब्रह्मकमळ said...

My first sentence would be...

We all crave to be amazing, to be brilliant and spectacular, how much are we willing to sacrifice to get there?

BrittanButterfly said...

I am very excited about this giveaway~ I have many journals that I have gone through, since I always have to bring one with me everywhere I go... I am always sketching and doodling and writing, so I don't like being somewhere unprepared! I am getting close to finishing the one I have right now and I can't wait to check out her site!!!

ब्रह्मकमळ said...

I have a moleskine that I use mostly to whine in. Try to figure out what I want from life, occasional picture, to do list or a story.

BrittanButterfly said...

I just love the Journal RadioFutura, I am keeping my fingers crossed!!! Good luck everyone!

BrittanButterfly said...

I am not always good with words, and I do like my journal to be pleasant to look at... Usually the first think I do in them is either decorate the front, or draw on the first few pages. Lately I have been doing a lot with ink and watercolor, so the sketches would most likely involve those mediums. Maybe a floating sailboat or somekind of fun character... I have been trying to illustrate a children's book that I wrote the story to, so I have been trying to work out the illustrations I am stuck on in my books!

heatherjean said...

my favorite journal is probably the journal music. so lovely!

heatherjean said...

the first sentence in my journal would be something like... "Same girl, different journal; same heart, different place."

heatherjean said...

i already have a journal and i use it for writing notes in from sermons, writing about my day, writing prayers, and painting random little objects!

Carys said...

My favourite journal is the 'Journal Music', it is absolutely beautiful (as are all of them!)

In my journal, every day I write something I stick in a significant news article from that day.

isadora gometti said...

do you send it to brazil?

Joana G. said...

The journal I like the most in the Etsy shop is "Journal Arboles" but all of them seems great!

Joana G. said...

I would probably start with " We all have stories to tell, even if they belong to our own life, here's will be my place, this is my kingdom." And I'd keep writing endlessly.

noaguerra at gmail dot com

:) Much love

Joana G. said...

I always had journal, when I was little it was to write my secrets, but I realized my secrets weren't safe there, anyone could steal it and read them. Today I own a journal where I write poetic texts, poems, make collages, mixed-media, it's my way to express my feelings and no one will never know of what I am talking about.

Love,
Joana

The Picnic journal is my favourite one! What a superb giveaway.

Zohar said...

http://www.etsy.com/listing/44387697/journal-actress-and-assistant

Zohar said...

I do have a sort of journal - it's a notebook my friend brought me especially from India, I usually write poems in it. Sometimes I write down some thoughts.

Zohar said...

The first line I would write in my journal is : be true to yourself.

mar said...

I would chose a phrase I just read the other day (a glam version of the keep calm and carry on):
"Keep Calm and Cary Grant" because I love the phylosophy of that simple quote and I love Cary Grant!

mar said...

I currently have no journal but I have in mind starting one about my new patchwork projects, with samples of cloth and designs :)

Becca Jane said...

Journal Music would be my pick for sure.

Becca Jane said...

My first sentence would be ...

"This is the beginning of a new chapter of experiences and adventures"

Becca Jane said...

The journal I have right now is one that I use to jot down thoughts, grocery lists, notes, addresses, and any other little need I have. I'd like to start one that just focuses on inspiration, hopes and dreams.

Blue Note said...

Hat said...

kshuttle@uoguelph.ca

Katie said...

i do already own a journal...but you can never have too many! I use it to write down all of my thoghts and feelings throughout the day. I think it is wonderful to be able to write out your feelings instead of keeping them inside

delicate doll. said...

i would love the journal familia photo =)

Carm said...

I would love to have "Journal Arboles", but it's so hard to pick a favourite!

Carm said...

First sentence:
What's life if you don't document your existence?

Carm said...

I've kept various journals for a long time. I just love the mere idea of documenting moments in time. I don't always write. I also draw, paste photographs, etc.

Great giveaway!

Ana said...

My favourite journal is probably "Actress and Assistant". So lovely! But then again, all of them are! ^_^

Ana said...

My first sentence... I guess it would probably be "I just received this lovely journal today, I won it in a give away at Loveology".

Ana said...

I used to keep a journal, but stopped a while ago. I mostly drew and wrote random toughts, parts of music lyrics I liked, important events that had happened to me that day...

Kate said...

i love Journal Picnic

Kate said...

first sentence:
hello beautiful.

Kate said...

i do have a journal right now and i am using it for elsie and rachel's art journal class!! (or i will be!)

C. said...

Oh yeah - love journals! Have one to review my day, one to jot down ideas, one to sketch... <3 I would LOVE to win one of these!

Chani said...

It's so difficult to chose just one... maybe familia piloto? I guess if I really had the chance to win I'd really have to look at them again... they are all so beautiful!

KatherineCierra said...

My favorite journal is the 'Journal Arboles'. It's lovely.

Chani said...

I wouldn't use it as a classic journal, but as a new sketchbook for my creations: Drawings and descriptions. At the moment I don't have the time to write a book about my life :)
Feel welcome to visit SucreEtCannelle.etsy.com

KatherineCierra said...

I have a journal that I used to use for writing about my day, my thoughts and aspirations, to-do lists, and sketching random things. But it's time for a new journal! So fingers crossed.

Chani said...

And yes, I have a "journal" at the moment, with all my ideas inside. I use it daily, so it's kind of a journal, isn't it? It's almost full. A new, inspiring journal would be great...

KatherineCierra said...

My first sentence would be 'I actually won this journal!'

Lulu said...

ohhh i love the Journal Music!!

Lulu said...

i don't think i'd write in it. my first sentence would be a picture, a drawing of some sort. or i might write my name in a fancy font!

Lulu said...

also, i own a notebook. i haven't had a journal in ages, but i used to collect them! i usually draw in them...or test pens...or scribble randomly to get out my creative energy =]

Mollybelle said...

How lovely and creative!
I would pick Journal Pilots

Mollybelle said...

I go through Journals ridiculously fast. I like to write everything down. From thoughts and feelings, lists of things to do, to document important events in my life, and even to remember to google something random that I would otherwise forget. :)

Mollybelle said...

"Dear lovely journal. I'm pregnant. F&#%."

♥ Maiara said...

My pick would be Radio Futura, it's lovely and chic!

♥ Maiara said...

My first sentence would be "The future is a lie, don't be afraid"

♥ Maiara said...

I have a journal for numbers, one for doodles and drawings, one for collages... Any reason is the best reason to start a new journal!

*Evelyn* said...

i love http://www.etsy.com/listing/44388602/journal-familia-piloto
really lovely ;)

tawny. said...

all of her journals are so lovely, its hard to choose just one! but i think the journal music is my fave!

thanks for such a wonderful giveaway!

tawny. said...

i think my first sentence would be something like, "can you believe i won this incredible journal?!" :)

tawny. said...

i have a journal that i almost always have on me. i use it for all types of lists and ideas, pretty much to write down anything that comes to me..

Camila F. said...

I would pick the lovely journal Music!

naomemandeflores@gmail.com

Camila F. said...

My first sentence would be: "And so another lovely journal begins...".

naomemandeflores@gmail.com

Camila F. said...

I always have a journal for any ideas that I might use later (or not), for collages and other lovely things.

naomemandeflores@gmail.com

Wishing Wells and Seashells said...

Oh wow these are all amazing and intricate!
If i had to pick, I'd say my favorite is Journal Margarita.

I hope she knows that she does beautiful work!

Wishing Wells and Seashells said...

The first sentence I wrote would be...
"What a fabulous day! I just received this gorgeous journal from someone who handcrafted it, and from a very talented blogger."

Wishing Wells and Seashells said...

I have a journal already, but it's only a plain composition notebook. I usually write in it only if I have something important to say or talk about, but I'm finding that going through beautiful blogs is even more satisfying than writing things down sometimes. Maybe having such a gorgeous journal will make me want to write more in it!

Dana Marie said...

My first line wouldn't be a line at all. Rather a collage of all the flowers from my backyard, a picture of myself and my cousin in a pool as kids, and a friendship bracelet my friend made me recently.
-Dana

Dana Marie said...

My favorite is "Journal Television." The stitching on the side and the old school tv are an amazing combo.

heleen said...

Wauw zoveel mooie boekjes! Mijn dagboek is bijna volgeschreven, dus dit zou wel een fijne vervanging vormen! M'n favoriet is 'Picnic'!

heleen said...

M'n eerste pagina zou beginnen met de uitleg van 1 bepaald woord: "scripturient: possessing the violent desire to write", dat lijkt me wel een gepast woord om mee te starten!

heleen said...

Goh, ik heb zoveel notitieboekjes en dagboeken en allerlei schriftjes die ik gebruik voor verschillende doeleinden! Degene die altijd naast m'n bed liggen zijn ten eerste m'n dagboek, met felgele kaft en een collage op de voorkant. Daarnaast heb ik ook een mooi schriftje met bloemenmotief op de cover waarin ik mooite stukjes tekst noteer die ik tegenkom in boeken (of op blogs!). Als 3e ligt ook vaak m'n "kunstdagboek" naast m'n bed, soms post ik wel eens wat pagina's eruit op m'n blog. Het is eigenlijk een beetje een middel om mezelf creatief bezig te houden, ik probeer de wereld in m'n hoofd er in te vangen door middel van tekeningen en collages en hier en daar een zin die dan al dagen door m'n hoofd spookt...

Karen Beth said...

I really love all her journals but I'm particularly drawn to Journal Arboles. Lovely!

msred5@yahoo.com

Karen Beth said...

The first sentence? I'd probably start off with a list of fun things I want to do this week. That is normally how I get my journaling going. :)

1. Sip champagne while watching Pride and Prejudice...

msred5@yahoo.com

Karen Beth said...

I absolutely keep a journal! Mostly it is to get the "static" out of my brain so that I don't feel stressed from it. The journal I write in mostly now is just "brain drain". I couldn't be without it.

msred5@yahoo.com

Eyeliah said...

this one is my favorite;
http://www.etsy.com/listing/44640196/journal-music

Eyeliah said...

This next song I will play at an open mike night

Eyeliah said...

I have a few journals, one for lists, one for song lyrics, one for dreams. :-)

The Drifter and the Gypsy said...

oh my goodness these are so gorgeous! AMAZING find, Mila :)

My fave has to be the picnic one, though!

Michelle Joyce said...

Familia piloto is darling.

Michelle Joyce said...

The journal I keep is for little thoughts and impressions I have.

Michelle Joyce said...

First sentence: Loveology is simply lovely!

erin meagan said...

Thanks for the giveaway

Sacred Gypsy said...

They are all so gorgeous! I write daily and always start off a new journal with a list of things I have to be thankful for.

lahana said...

I love the journal white.

lahana said...

I always write a quote from Rumi, ''my way is to live in this beautiful world'' to my journals.

lahana said...

I use my journals for daily thoughts, and to keep daily findings like leaves, flowers...I love my big red moleskine so much.
