ITEM OF THE DAY Item of the Day Julia Gazdag

I don’t know if you guys are into journaling, but why would anyone not be? It’s like talking to your best friend if your best friend never actually said anything just nodded and smiled and wanted you to keep talking about your feelings until your hand went numb and carpal tunnel set in.


So when I saw the My Life Story Lifetime Diary at House 8810, I couldn’t resist. Day after day I’d go back and drool over it until finally my hands told me go stop being such a ninny and clicked “add to shopping cart.” We’ve been together ever since. It’s 1080 pages and designed to last you 100 years, which it won’t. I ignore the seasonal pages and just write as much as I please, but since lined pages are paired with blank ones, I also get to do sketches and paste photos and find homes for my dinosaur stickers.

You can get one HERE and then thank me in the comments below.

  1. I calculate it would take me about 5-7 years to fill that bad boy. I agree with Amy though, for me I like picking out a new one every year or two. That’s pretty cool though.

  2. That thing is… a beautiful monster. I want it, but I like the feeling of getting excited to start the next one when the current one is almost full.

    But… it’s so pretty. I could put so much crap in there! Also, love your button closure idea in your other comment.

    I may just have to bookmark House 8810, so I can visit this, and daydream. Ooh! I could use it as a concordance for the journals I’ve already written! Who’s Mike? Time to use the concordance! “Mike: a big fat stupid meanie head who needs to move out of his parents house. Former Prince Charming and BF. See also, Charles.”

    Sorry, that comment got away from me at the end there. What I meant to write was “Nice looking journal there. Perhaps I shall purchase one as well.”

    • If you just rip out the remaining pages of whatever journal you have, you’ll get to the end faster. Also this thing comes in a box, so you can stash it for when you really are done with the current one. I also want to say, for the record, I’m not being paid to endorse this and didn’t get a sample copy or anything, I just really really love this thing.

  3. I loved this from the moment i saw it and I’ve been drooling over it for close to a year! Perhaps today will be the day I stop being a ninny also.

    • It took me a month. Maybe. But I have weak resolve. I’ve also colored in the “My Life Story” lettering with black sharpie and plan to cover the whole thing with a different fabric soon, including a button closure! Sigh. There’s so much you can do with it.
