Let’s see what’s in the November 2016 Holly Journals box!
Everything was shipped in a small brown box with a Holly Journals sticker on top.
A peek inside!
A welcome card revealed the theme of this month’s box — “An Attitude of Gratitude”.
The journal itself was hand wrapped and sealed with a sticker.
The Journal – Ahhh! I thought October’s journal was as autumn-inspired as it gets, but this one is even autumn-ier! 😉 The cover design is absolutely perfect! As mentioned earlier, it’s completely handmade and consists of at least 50 2-sided pages of various paper materials.
Look at all those pretty autumn colors!
Positive quotes like the one above are sprinkled throughout the book.
So many different textures and patterns!
November Journal Prompts – As promised, there was a helpful list of journal prompts/inspiration to help you get your creative juices flowing.
Markers – Two metallic markers were included — one copper and one gold. Perfect colors for autumn!
Calendar – A blank calendar sheet was included for… Well, I’m not sure. Planning your journal entries?
Dangle Charm – Oooh! Is it weird that I wish this journal charm was a necklace instead? I kinda have a “thing” for acorns and this jumble of autumn-inspired charms is SO cute. Love it! 😀
Embellishments – A variety of stickers, labels, paperclips, and tags were provided to add even more personality to the pages of your journal.
Thank You Card – A simple thank you card was included for you to “personally thank someone whose deeds go unnoticed or are under-appreciated”.
Spiced Apple Cider – While not quite as good as fresh spiced apple cider, this convenient single-serving packet is the next best thing.
Stovetop Potpourri – Drop this cinnamon stick mixture in a pot of water and let it simmer on the stove as it fills your house with the scents of the season. Mmm!
Cinnamon Stick Candy – A sweet cinnamon-flavored treat.
An amazing box of autumn-y goodness from Holly Journals! I can’t get over how beautifully made these journals are… They’re almost too pretty to write in. The “grateful” theme was really well done and I loved all of the fun bonus items. Such a great box! — Remember for a limited time, you can save 10% off for life with coupon code “RB10“!
