2018-2022 5 Year Diary Now Available

If you’re already thinking about new year resolutions, a 5 Year Diary is a great place to start. It’s an easy way to record your daily life and makes for a great memory book to look back on.

My spiral bound 5 Year Diary has been updated for 2018-2022 and has a cute new design featuring my Kawaii Skies characters. They appear in a full colour pattern on the cover and on each diary page.

If you’re not familiar with the format, a 5 year diary has 5 years per page and only a small space to fill, so you can easily jot down the day’s events at bedtime. It’s especially fun once you get past the first year and can start comparing your days. I get a kick out of spotting all the similarities and seeing how my monthly and annual tasks line up with previous years.

There’s also profile pages for each year so you can keep track of big life changes, goals and favourites.

As always, you can also buy an updated edition of last year’s Happy Nature design. Both are available on-demand from Lulu. This works out best for everyone as Lulu have printing facilities worldwide so can offer affordable shipping wherever you are.

If you previously bought my paperback 5 Year Diary and would like a matching one for next year, please let me know! I can only make them available if I get a few pre-orders.
