Cinch to my Rescue!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!

I thought that today I would share a picture of my chunky diary, made with my Cinch machine.
Ahhh Cinch, you are the answer to my spiral bound prayers!!!

My Chunky diary made with Cinch

I love chunky note books, journals and diaries
I’m not really sure why but I just can’t help myself when I see them – I just want them.

I do however struggle to contain my frustration when writing on the left page as the spiral irritates me.
(I am right handed)
Pretty much my writing gets a wee bit messy towards the end of each line because
my hand and the spiral start fighting with each other.

But – I absolutely LOVE spiral bound booklets!!!

Anyway I also struggle to find a diary that has what I want…. sooooooo
I hopped on my ‘widdle computa’ and started mapping out diary pages.
While they took some time the pages now are all on the right hand side of my Diary.
They also have what works for me each day including tick boxes
next to eight little cartoon glasses of water so I remember to have my fluid
and a tick box next to a very tired female cartoon runner for my exercise.


The left hand side of my diary contains words of inspiration, wisdom and motivation.
Random quotes and pictures that will make me smile and think each day.
I really enjoyed finding most of them with the help of my friend Mr Ooooogle.
for example

Audrey Hepburn

I have Audrey Hepburn, Pooh Bear, Minions, Dr Seuss, Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln,
Lieutenant General David Morrison,
  Eleanor Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and
many, many, many more to get me through the rest of this year!

I also used some sentiment stamps from Indigoblu and Kaisercraft rather than have
everything from Mr Oooogle.

I used peony little birds to cover the front and back of my diary and
ribbons to bookmark my pages. 
I also have random sheets of patterned designer paper
throughout just for some fun colour and change.

If you love stationery like me and can’t go past notebooks, journals and diaries,
then I highly recommend the Cinch – I LOVE mine!!
