So I was wandering around HomeSense before Christmas, trying to find something for that one last person on my list. I didn’t find anything for him, but I found something for me: a Smash Journal by K&Company (the same folks who did the Journal Pockets). The packaging and colours appealed to me so it became a gift for me.
Before I unwrapped it I took a picture.
I looked them up online and apparently I bought the Retro Smash Journal. And it seems to have a travel theme. Truth be told, I really wanted the stamp and this package was the only one that had one.
Paper Source has them but so does Amazon.com; the Pretty Pink one looks very interesting. And the youtube video is great. And finally the K&Company website is having a sale on the Smash Journal Gift Packs right now. Free shipping in the US.
The stamp records the date as well as one of the following messages:
- OH, SNAP!
- I (HEART) THIS
- TODAY IS
- THAT WARRANTS A FIST PUMP
- MAD PROPS
- *__________ (it’s actually a box that you can write your own short message in)
- Happy Place
- HOT MESS
- TO DO
The list pad follows along the travel theme. Each note is detachable, with themes like Don’t Forget To Bring…, Best Trip Ever:, and Travel Nightmare: A True Story of a Vacation Gone Bad.
That’s my progress so far. I still have ephemera from the London trip I can add in here. And possibly other trips as well. I think some of the pages are quite nice the way they are and I don’t want to change them, but then I have to remember that it’s an art project. I wrote on the first page: Nothing you do here is wrong. Enjoy the freedom to be messy.
