This is a lovely journal made by an artist/craftswoman my mom knows. My mom gave it to me as a gift, and I've been kind of struggling over what to do with it because while I truly appreciate the thought, I am just not the paper-journaling type. She said she thought of it because she used to write letters to me when she was pregnant with me, and always wished she had a nice book to use rather than just sheets of paper.
Photos are here: front
The pages are blank, medium-thick paper, and large (8.5" by 11"). It's covered with a dark green velvety fabric and has a raised silhouette of a pregnant woman with some purple flowers and a tiny gold heart in her belly. There is a small scuff mark on the fabric on the back cover. (I think it got scuffed when I was bringing it home in my luggage.) I think that with regular use it will get more scuff marks. The fabric is not exactly rough and tumble.
I am a grad student expecting my first babe, so I could really use functional things, especially diapering supplies (prefolds, flats, covers, or AIOs) or maybe a pouch? I am planning to make a wrap, but if you have a plain one you'd like to trade and can save me the time, that would be good, too.
PPD would be fine, too. I'm asking $20 plus shipping. I think the journal probably cost a lot more than that but I imagine it will be moderately pricy to ship and I don't want the total cost to be too high.
