Bridget’s Birthday Bash {Gadanke Journal Review & Giveaway}

Disclosure: This post is part of my week of giveaways.
I did not receive any compensation for this post.
The opinions below are all mine & I am excited to share about the unique Gadanke journals.
Thanks to Katie, the owner of Gadanke, for providing a journal to the winner of this contest.

I was sitting at lunch with a few friends and a few people I didn’t know at Blissdom this past year. We did a business card swap and one of the ladies passed out tiny little handmade journals for each of us. It was full of thought provoking prompts and pretty paper. (I’m a sucker for pretty paper, you know). When I got home, I checked out the website for the little journal and found that she had a wide variety of options. These journals aren’t bound like most of the ones I use, but held together with rings so that you can pop it open and add anything you like. I had a drawing from Lydia that fit one of the prompts perfectly so I took a quick shot of it with my iPhone, sized it down a little, printed it out, and added it right in. That was really nice. No glue. No tape. Just pop it right in.

Although I love the paper and the way you can add things, my favorite thing was the prompts. Katie has written prompts on many pages of the journal that can help get you rolling. Sometimes a blank sheet of paper is so intimidating! But to complete a sentence or answer a question seems much less daunting. Many of the prompts in the Become journal were about asking yourself what you really want and how to get that, how to unlock your dreams and begin making them a reality. I was surprised at some of the things that came from my pen.

And you’ll note that I got the white one especially because I wanted to doodle the whole cover. Doodling isn’t just mindless drawing for me(more on that tomorrow), so I really enjoyed the time I spent coloring the front. There’s just something almost magical about allowing yourself to swish and swirl all over the page.

I loved mine so much, I asked if I could give one to one of you! Don’t turn away just because you aren’t a woman or because you’re already livin’ the dream. Gadanke really does have something for everyone: women, kids, mother & daughter, baby books, and more !
