ABOUT PROMPTLY JOURNALS

I'm Jayne, founder of Promptly Journals. To be honest… I’m a bit of an organization nut. A tad neurotic. When my first daughter was born, I could not find a system I liked to document her life.

At first I started writing it down in my own journal, but then realized I'd like to give it to her one day without my ramblings included. Then, the blank journal was too time consuming and the blank pages overhwleming — I didn't know where to start. I also didn't want to be "that mom" who overposts her kids' life on social media in a desperate attempt to not forget anything. (Does any of this sound familiar?)

I know the importance of journaling because I already couldn't remember too many things I told myself I'd never forget. I felt the guilt of not doing anything and knew I would regret it one day. And now with my second baby on the way, I knew I was running out of time to figure something out.

In order for me to commit, I wanted a system that was doable, one that I could start and finish completely and not just with my first child, but for however many kids I would have. I needed a journal that was efficient but would record enough of the good, small details I never want to forget. I also wanted it ALL in one place, and being a designer, I wanted a beautiful product that would stand the test of time and outlast trends.

So I made my own journal and Promptly Journals was born.

Since then the idea has grown to include the original Childhood History journal, an Adoption journal, a Love Story journal for couples in love, a Travel journal to remember everything about your most memorable trips, and free downloadable booklets to encourage healing in hard times.

I hope these journals bring you the same ease and beautiful memory keeping that they give to me and that you can pass them on someday to those you love the most.

Thanks for stopping by.
