12 Days of Christmas Gift Ideas for Book Lovers Day 4: Homemade Mini Journals and Giveaway

We determined yesterday that book lovers typically like to write. Well, what's better to write in than a journal, especially a mini journal that is small enough to keep in your purse, your pocket, or even just on your bedside table by the book I'm sure we all have.

Today's gift idea is a set of custom designed mini journals by Crowning Element, an Etsy shop that specializes in accessories for you and your home. They carry items for all kinds of people - the dreamer, the rocker, the indie, and anyone else you can imagine. And their mini journals are some of my favorites. These little journals are filled randomly with reclaimed and re-purposed materials from discarded 1950s magazines, blank paper, grid paper, pages from coloring books, colored paper, vintage maps, old sheet music and various other odds and ends intended to bring a smile to your face. Check out some of the different design options they have.




I can just imagine the different ways I could use one of these journals - shopping list in my purse, recommended book and author list, daily journal to write quick notes on for remembering later, and the possibilities go on and on.

Crowning Element has generously offered to give away one set of two mini journals to one lucky Book Nook Club reader. You'll be able to choose two journals from all of the designs she currently has available in her shop and there are plenty to choose from.
