Wooden journals - customise cover with any wording

"Life is an open book full of pages, you write your story as you go..."

This journey of life has many twist and turns, are you recording them to remember and reflect? 

Our wooden journals allow you to completely customise the front with any wording, and then inside, record the ups and downs of any journey.

2 designs on offer:

One is completely line paper, ready for you to write away. 70 pages are lined

The other has ONE PAGE with space for photos and writing, followed by 3 lined pages

Plus two alternatives on offer:

One WITHOUT a plastic keepsake envelope in back

One WITH a plastic keepsake envelope in back


Our completely Australian made book is etched, cut, sanded, packaged and made with love in our North Queensland studio. Its unique wooden cover and back make it a special keepsake. 


  • Laser carved on a quality 3mm timber + large white coil means you can load your book with photos + special keepsakes and it will still close
  • 70 minimalistic + gender neutral pages (front and back) are thick matte 190gsm, ensuring when writing, its not visible on the reverse side. Pages are A4 in size, cover and back are slightly bigger to help protect the pages.
  • 2 designs, one with just lined paper and the other with room for photos every 4th page. Each comes with a front page. 
  • IMPORTANT:  Every single book will look different with the grain, etch depth, colouring (you may see small black or yellow marks) and this is what makes it so unique! You are buying this product because you love its raw, natural look! Do not leave your book in direct sunlight or leave standing upright. Keeping your book flat will help with warping!
  • EXTRAS AVAILABLE: you can choose to add some special extras for your journal like handmade cotton bag, or a plastic keepsake sleeve.

Ideas on journal customisation:

  • Our Christmas Story: use 1 or 2 pages each year to record how you spent your Christmas. Paste in images and keepsakes.
  • Each year you grow: use the book to write a story to your child about each of their years. What did they achieve, what did the overcome, what amazing world events were they witness to?
  • Wedding/Christening/Birthday book: allow you friends and family to write down the advice, stories or memories, to always look back on
  • Book for mum or dad: each year on Mothers/Fathers day, allow your child to decorate a page. Instead of cards, you can keep these memories together in ONE place for each year. 
  • Holidays: record each trip you take as a family and spend hours reminiscing about your travels
  • Recipes: pass down those important recipes from one generation to another.
  • Journals for anything: record your IVF or NICU story, your love story with a partner, your memories as a child or the stories from your grandparents that you never want to forget
