One of the things I enjoy most when working on my journals is writing in them LOL
Yes, I know what you must be thinking, my customers should write in them not me… well, I found a way to change that, by offering to write a custom calligraphy text in them, on the first page of the journal, up to 30 words, free of charge. Some of the quotes are very nice so I will share them with you. These are just famous quotes, that one can find online, I would never share private texts or quotes that customers give me.
So, each month I will share a few custom quotes that I penned in the leather journals I made. I believe I am lucky because I get to know better the beautiful minds of my customers, and I think they are fascinating.

writing a custom calligraphy text, a quote from Marquis de Sade

 

I like people with depth, I like people with emotion, I like people with an interesting mind, and also I like people who can make me smile.
~ Quote by Abbey Lee Kershaw

…. and I like people that like such people 🙂

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
~Albert Einstein

Not sure this one belongs to Einstein, I’ve seen a lot of quotes and even inspirational videos attributed to him, I guess putting a famous name underneath a quote adds some weight to it. Still, it’s a beautiful quote, though I myself find it hard to choose which way I live, I guess somewhere in between, I am a skeptic that sees the glass half full. What would you choose?

Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity
~Albert Einstein

I should write this one in a large font and hang it above my creative clutter 🙂

Writing in a journal reminds you of your goals and of your learning in life. It offers a place where you can hold a deliberate, thoughtful conversation with yourself.
~ Robin S. Sharma

I wish everybody would think like that, I would definitely sell more journals then!

Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.
~ Samuel Johnson

Ah! Another one to hang on my wall.

Writers aren’t people exactly. Or, if they’re any good, they’re a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

I just looove this one! in such simple words, you get an insight into the struggles of a writer.

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
~ Author Unknown
