Review: Kreativlink Journals

Kreativlink Journal

Kreativlink Journal

Okay, I admit it. I have a journal fetish. I simply cannot have enough beautiful books to write in. One of my all-time favorite journal makers is Renate Ikinger, who sells her journals under the name Kreativlink on Etsy. Her softcover handmade journals are approximately 4.5 by 6 inches and are usually covered in suede or cotton. They run about $40 to $45. In addition to the many journals she has in stock at her store, Renate also makes custom journals. Many of her illustrations are botanical in theme – they have a very organic look. One of my favorite things about her journals is that the covers wrap all the way around, which keeps the edges of the pages from getting damaged. I especially like the ones with the snap closures. Her journals are great for travel because they are relatively compact, but have lots of pages. The journal pictured here is one I purchased from Kreativlink to use for my trip to Korea in 2008.

Etsy is a great source for journals and other handmade goodies, and Kreativlink is one of the many treasures I have found there.

I love Kreativlink’s journals. So creative and functional books. And yet so beautiful. I have one Kreativlink journal myself too :)
