I absolutely love Q&A, fill-in, journal type books. They are an easy way to do memory keeping, only require a few minutes and are so fun to look back on. I have bought several new ones for 2016 and thought I would share my favorites + some other ones that you might be interested in. Order a few on Amazon and have them in time to kick off 2016!
The 52 Lists Project: A Year of Weekly Journaling Inspiration: I bought this a few months ago and can’t wait to FINALLY start it. This book is seasonally inspired and filled with prompts to inspire, challenge and document your dreams. (pictured above)
Q&A a Day for Moms: A 5-Year Journal: I started this in November and really love the prompts. Some are light, some are deep so collectively you are writing a really cool story for your kids. (pictured above). These non-mom versions are also available: Q&A a Day: 5-Year Journal and Q&A a Day for Creatives: A 4-Year Journal
My Fringe Hours: Discovering a More Creative and Fulfilled Life: I would be remiss to not mention My Fringe Hours, my new book that takes the concepts of making time for your own self-care and passions and brings them to life through journaling prompts and creative exercises. It is simply beautiful on the inside and the self-discovery process is so eye-opening. I actually plan to walk through it myself in the coming weeks. It’s the perfect book for the new year. (pictured above)
Gratitude: A Journal: Practicing gratitude is a daily practice that makes for a happier, healthier, richer life. The clean design and compact size makes this a favorite of mine. (pictured above)
One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book: If you like the idea of daily documenting, this is the journal for you! Super simple design and easy way to do memory keeping.
1 Page at a Time: A Daily Creative Companion: This is a really fun concept, especially for creatives. Each of the 365 prompts in the book will encourage you to draw, write, list, reflect, and share. I think I am going to keep this at my office for when I need a creative break.
Make It Happen!: A Workbook & Productivity Tracker for Getting Stuff Done: I’m in a big goal setting season, so am excited about this book. It arrived yesterday and I already love the clean design.
Letters to My Future Self: Write Now. Read Later. Treasure Forever.: These books were chosen for Oprah’s favorite things. I love the idea of writing letters to open at a future date and think this could be a cool keepsake. (They have a baby one that I am going to do for Ezra too!)
40 Days and 40 Nights: Taking Time Out for Self-Discovery: This might be cool for someone looking to do some inward soul searching and self-discovery.
Listography Journal: Your Life in Lists: Lists are so fun and this Listography journal is full of great prompts.
For Moms: Here are a few other books that you may enjoy if you like these types of journaling books.
Parenthood Listography: My Kid in Lists: List lovers rejoice over this fun way to document stories and life with your child. So fun!
Mom’s Five-Second Memory Journal: A Memento of Motherhood: This book is very compact and would be easy to store in a purse or car for when you just have a few seconds to write. When it is complete, it will be a treasure to pass on to your children.
Letters to You: This gorgeous hardcover linen book offers yearly questions and prompts for a parent to write to their child. The design is classic and simple and would make a treasured keepsake.
My Quotable Kid: A Parents’ Journal of Unforgettable Quotes: A fun book for documenting all the silly and sweet things your children say. This book has A LOT of space to write. I think one would be sufficient for several kids. 🙂
Q&A a Day for Moms: A 5-Year Journal (pictured/mentioned above)
For Your Kids: The Q&A series also offers kid and teen versions. I have the kid ones for Elias and Adeline and ordered the teen ones for my nieces for Christmas. They are fantastic!
Q&A a Day for Kids: A Three-Year Journal (pictured above): This could either be filled out by a parent or a child. It asks daily questions and offers space to write the answers for three consecutive years. It’s fun to see how your child changes through his/her answers.
