CraftyGirl's Featured Shop: TheAlteredDiaries

When I was younger, I kept a daily diary. I'll admit, going through them years later, I had quite a few laughs...but there's something so therapeutic about writing down your day, your problems, your achievements. It's a habit that I'd like to start again... If you're looking for a quality handmade journals, sketchbooks or collage sheets, check out today's featured shop, TheAlteredDiaries.
