❃ About Our Kin Keeper Journals ❃

Our Kin Keeper journals are made in beautiful British Columbia, Canada with soft, real leather, and wrapped with a leather cord and wooden bead. Each piece of leather reflects the story of the animal, with natural markings and variations that add to the uniqueness and beauty of your journal and the stories you'll write. Your journal will be truly one-of-a-kind. We've created a family of colorful and stylish journals to help you express yourself in various ways. We offer a Gratitude Journal, a Prayer Journal, a Watercolor Journal, a Custom Journal, a Personal Journal, a Mom Journal, a Pregnancy Journal, a Dream Journal, and a Sketchbook Journal. Your stories are special and we want you to capture them in a journal that reflects your style and personality!

Each Hug Personal journal has 84 pages that are hand-stitched to the spine. We can help personalize your journal with embossed initials on the cover. The paper is artist-quality, acid-free, so enhance your stories with drawings, sketches, doodles, and watercolours using the optional artist add-on packs. Add photos or clippings with optional mini-scrapbook add-on pack. Unlined pages let you can write and create freely. And, you'll wrap your stories with a “hug” each time you close it—the extended flap and leather cord create a loving embrace for your pages.

❃ How You Can Use Our Kin Keeper Journals ❃

Write and even illustrate special stories for each of your children, grandchildren and other young family members. Years from now they can hold the journal in their hands and "hear" you as they read your handwritten words of wisdom. Or, give a journal to an older family member to write down the experiences you've longed to know about. It will be a quality gift like no other. Are you a caregiver? Our writing prompts can also be used to generate discussion with an older family member who cannot write well, but still has stories to share as someone else writes them down.

Is there a new parent in the family? We offer a special set of writing prompts for you to write about and share your own experiences about new parenthood. Is there a person who enjoys more spiritual/religious reflection? We offer a set of writing prompts for him or her as well.

❃ What's Included ❃

Optional add-ons can be purchased from our store: watercolour pack, watercolour pencil pack, mini-scrapbooking pack, extra writing prompt packs.
