New Products Week: 5 Year Diary

5 year diaries

5 Year Diaries are now available for 2017-2021 in two cute designs! The new edition uses the same pattern as my 2017 calendars and features all my cute seasonal characters on the cover and throughout the months inside.

If you haven’t used one before, 5 Year Diaries have a page for each day with a box for each year so you can keep note of your daily doings for the year and then do it all again for the following four years. You’ll then have a fun memory book of what you got up to and it’s great fun seeing how similar or different your days are over the years.

There are also profile pages for each year so you can keep note of your personal interests and life changes.

This year I am only selling a spiral bound edition, which is available directly from Lulu along with last year’s 5 A Day fruit and vegetables design. Lulu ship worldwide from various regional printers so there are a range of affordable shipping options available plus express delivery if you leave it to the last minute. Look out for offers too – I’ll share the best in my Weekend Wrap Up posts.

Usually I have a paperback edition too that I sell in my own shops but Lulu have not managed to send me a test copy that I’m happy with. If you do want one of those, contact me and we’ll sort out a custom order.
