5 Diaries That The Organiser In You Would Love To DIY
Some people collect stamps, others collect roses, but I collect diaries (and boxes!). Till date, I have around 50 of them, give or take a few, in different sizes and shapes. You can say I am obsessed with everything that even remotely looks like a journal. Next question that will pop up in your mind would be, do I really write that much? Nope. They are just sitting in my cupboard, staring at me, lovingly. Will I ever stop bringing new ones in my life? Definitely not.
But, what I have done now is that instead of purchasing them, I have started making them at home. Trust me, it is an amazing process, especially if you are a stationery junkie like I am. And you don’t have to walk the usual path and create a boring notebook (oops, I didn’t say that), you can try out different styles and make it more personalised, more you. After all, a diary has the potential to be your BFF and stand by you when no one else will. It’s true, peeps.
Scroll down for 5 adorable DIY diary ideas that will totes awaken the inner list maker, letter writer, notes maker, and storyteller in you!

When you want a diary to fit in your wallet and just want to feel better by looking at a little cuteness on a stressful day, make this one NOW. It works as a keychain too, and you can now say bye to the overpriced ones at Archies!
