Good day everybody! This was going to be the eighth year of me buying a school diary for myself. I was very excited because I always love little notebooks and things to write in, but after some time of walking in and out of my favorite shops I realized I wouldn't be finding a diary I'd like. They were all too big or too small or there wasn't enough space too write or there was too much space to write. None of them were good, and that is when I decided to make my own! (Well, at least, to buy a notebook I really liked so I could make it my own.)
That was also the moment on which I decided to spend, say, 10 hours on drawing lines and writing dates.
It's not a very complicated DIY, just a rather time consuming one. But, if you're picky like me when it comes to diaries and notebooks this might just be the right DIY for you. But, be aware of the fact that this will take you some hours of writing!
All I used was a notebook (I picked up for a very low price at a big store), some pens and I also used some felt-tip pens. Oh, and, don't forget your ruler (if your hand's not that steady!)
The advantage of this rather time consuming task is, you can make your diary exactly how you'd like it to be. You can use as many lines for each day as you'd like and you can skip the colors you don't.
I used my iPad to check out which dates belonged to which days (I'd be very annoyed if they wouldn't be right!) and I used some different colors for each week to spice up my diary. You can also use stickers or make cute little drawings, but I'll save this space for when the school year starts. I'll need it during some boring lessons!
Will you be buying your diary this year, or will you make it into a crafty DIY project? Let me know!
