Cyber Monday and 2019 Calendars & Diaries

It’s Cyber Monday and there’s still some great discounts happening in my own shops and on-demand.

5 Year Diary

5 year diaries for 2019-2023 are now available at Lulu. This edition features my new Kawaii Life pattern and the characters turn up inside on every page too. There’s a box for each year on every page to keep note of your daily happenings so you can compare and contrast in future years. Great for anyone thinking of starting a diary or journal but isn’t sure they’ll be able to keep it up – it takes me 5 minutes before bed to update mine. Get 25% off today with the code BLACKFRIDAY25.
