The idea for this journal actual goes back 5 years, when I gave my husband a composition notebook for Valentine’s Day. I had inscribed on the first page of the notebook “…My thought is we would exchange this notebook back and forth, each of us adding something new to the journal until this notebook is full…” It is a notebook that has slowly accumulated a series of letters and has been fun to look back on from time to time and reminisce.

I wanted to design a journal that others may use for a similar purpose—a place to collect their love letters.

Here’s a quick pictorial of my creative process for the Love Letter journal.
