We all love to express ourselves in one way or another. The idea of society and freedom of expression is so innate in the core of humanity our thousands of years of history have been rich with our expressions.
Our expressions of our ideas, feelings, and emotions have transcended through time and have shown themselves in the most iconic forms of art. In architecture, who could forget the love of an emperor to his wife through the Taj Mahal? In painting, what else could better show the belief of a Divine Creator other than one of the most beautiful paintings in the world that is found in the Sistine Chapel, the Creation by Michaelangelo? In sculpture, what more significant symbol of faith is there than Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) that overlooks the entire city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil?
But our methods of expression are not just limited to various forms of art. It can also manifest itself through words, through pen and paper, through ink. And if you’re the kind of person who delights in the beauty and power of words, you might like the idea of expressing your words in creative paper, colorful notebooks, and customised journals.
It’s a great way to let the ink flow freely from your heart and let your creativity and imagination run wild and combine the two together in the form of custom diaries. Here are some ideas you might want to try to make the most out these stuff.
- An actual diary
When you had an extraordinary day, and memorable moment, you want to remember every detail. Words are powerful. They are like pictures- they capture your emotion at a specific point in time, and they do so gracefully. And what better way to remember it than writing an entry on your diary? Someday you’ll be looking back at the most special moments of your life, and you will really appreciate writing it down and remembering it in your mind and in your heart.
- A slam-book
When you want to remember people who are really special to you and get to know them more, consider doing a slam book. This will help you with a friend’s or colleague’s details, most especially their address and contact information when you want to visit or call or text them someday. And you can even add questions that will make it more personal such as their favorite color, favorite movie, or even their crush!
- A planner
Planners will help those who are busy and can’t seem to get a hold of everything that’s going on with their life. If that’s you, then having a planner will help you manage your time, schedule, and activities, and make sure you’re sanity is intact by the end of every day of your life.
- A photo timeline
This is a modified diary and makes use of photos taken on your life’s unforgettable days such as graduation, engagement, wedding, having a baby, and lots more! With today’s smartphone cameras becoming more and more powerful, this custom diary is a lot easier to do, and you don’t even need to carry special equipment- the one on your pocket is enough.
