Tarot Journals

I wanted to share one of my more popular notebook products – tarot journals. I had no idea before I started making them just how hot they would be.

I have more than 20 options now in my shop. Several feature the same design with differences in sizes or interior options. I offer 6″x9″ as a carry-around size and 8″x10″ for use at home. The interiors offer you either a three-card read as in the image above or a single-card read.

All the journals have space for you to mark the card or cards you drew for the day. You can draw the card or use a symbol to represent it. There’s a page at the front of the book for you to mark the particular symbols you’ve decided to use for each card.

Single-card draw pages

If you use more than one deck in your daily tarot readings, there’s a place for you to make note of that. You can write down your specific question of the day or general thoughts for what you’re trying to answer.

There’s a space for you to write your interpretation of your card or cards. In the front of the diary, I have a chart that gives the most common interpretation of each card.

Lastly, there is a place for the end of the day where you can capture your thoughts. This might be how you saw the reading play out during the day or whether your interpretation at the end of the day is different from that of the beginning.

You can mark the date for each reading so this doesn’t have to be used for daily draws. You might only consult the cards when something big is about to happen.

Tarot Journal Cover Designs

Mandalas are common cover theme in my store, like the purple and blue one pictured at the top. I’ve interpreted them several different ways so there’s a style for just about anyone.

These make a great gift for the spiritualist in your life.

Garden Flower Reading Journals

How many times have you been asked about a book and you can’t remember if you’ve read it, just bought it, liked it – really anything about it other than “I’ve heard of it.”

A reading log or journal is a great way to keep track of what you read over the course of a year. Even if you keep an online blog or post your reviews at Goodreads, it helps to have a physical option at hand to jot notes as you read.

And so here’s another gorgeous reading log option for all you readers out there!

Purple floral reading journal

I especially like this design for people into historical romances. Looks highly appropriate for that era, right?

This design features line-drawn or outlined flowers, leaves and stems, along with some solid options. Big purple circle in the center with the words “reading journal”. It mostly looks purple in this mock-up but there are accents of blue and yellow mixed in as well.

Inside, you’ll find space to track all your book reading reviews in this logbook with places for your ratings, quotes and more detailed review. Keep track of your thoughts to help you remember key points and themes, plots, characters and quotes in advance of writing an online review or book report.

There are enough pages for 100 reviews in one-page spreads, which means almost two books a week for 2021! Sounds like a great year!

The book is 8″x10″, so there’s plenty of room on the page for all your notes on a book you’ve finished.

As well as the main review space, there’s space to log title, author, genre, page count; start and finish dates; book format; favorite quotes. In the front, you’ll find charts to allow you to make a custom index for the book. At the back, there are pages to keep track of your book wishlist and reading challenges you undertake.

There’s even a page to write down books you abandon because you just can’t finish them. (I had many, many of those in the past year.) Great gift idea for under $10 for your mom, sister, grandma, teacher – any woman who reads.

Jellyfish Planner

Showing off another of my many undated planners available over at Amazon, this time one with a gloriously elegant cover of silver jellyfish against a dark blue background. The gorgeous image was shot off the coast of Spain.

This one is undated with a single week across two pages with sections for tasks and notes. It has 110 pages, so should last you a year. It has a matte soft cover, perfect bound spine and is a convenient 6″x9″ size.

Great gift idea to add to your list as you’re planning ahead to the end of the year for anyone who loves the sea or just great photography.

Black collie dog undated planner

The very first planners I ever published are still among my favorites. After all, they feature earnest and adoring dog faces and who can resist those?

The covers of these all featured the text “so … what are we going to do today?” because in my head, that’s exactly what the dog is asking. Certainly that’s what I always heard when my dogs would look at me like that!

While the boxer cover will always be my favorite because I had a boxer, design-wise, I adore this collie planner because the image wraps around to the back. He can see you coming and going!

This planner is 110 pages with one week per two pages, so enough pages for a full year. However, it’s undated so that year can start whenever you want! The days of the week are on the left side, while I’ve made sections for a to-do list, random notes and hard goals. There’s a light grid filling the background so you can use it to doodle if you don’t have much to plan one week. 🙂 It’s a nice compact 6″x9″ size to make it easy to carry around.

I do update the insides of these every year because I include full year calendars in the front. Right now, they are for 2020 and 2021. Around October or so, I’ll update them to be for 2021 and 2022. Otherwise, when you get one is irrelevant.

Get your collie undated planner at Amazon!

Side note: the images above are mock-ups I made, not pictures of the actual book. Just wanted to mention that since the book you’d actually receive won’t have rounded corners and will include a bar code on the back.
