The problem with stationery – when you have poor hand function

I love to write. Like many women my age, I am obsessed with good looking stationery and matching pens. But unlike those women, I cannot physically use them due to poor hand function! Sick of seeing everyone enjoying the journaling craze without me, I decided to try to do the basics of journaling with the help of my iPad Air 2. I then YouTubed it and got ideas off other people and then adapted all my favourite ideas into a unique take on a craze that is making the humble notebook into a must have accessory!

Then I realised that as well as overcoming the issue of the physical component of journaling , I also am to a degree, saving the environment due to the removal of the paper notebook. I have a passion for graphic design and this has helped me develop my own templates.

I have created a weekly planner, and I use it everyday, it’s a lifesaver! I plan to develop more styles and templates in the future. I don’t plan to sell them for money, but I have the idea of free downloads or something similar down the road.

I plan to show people how easy it is to not only journal and take notes in style on the iPad but how easy it is to go green and get rid of clunky notebooks!

When I look back, I realise that my idea is not that similar to the original journaling but it’s different from the paperback notebook. I really like using the iPad to journal and now I’m one of the millions of people who journal every day all over the world, and the thought of me being one of those millions of people around the world who are doing this trend, disabled or not, makes me feel just like everyone else!

  1. I simply desired to say thanks again. I am not sure the things
    that I could possibly have done without the type of creative
    concepts contributed by you regarding such a area.
    This has been a very scary issue in my opinion, but being able to see the very
    specialised avenue you dealt with that forced me to jump over delight.
    I am just thankful for your advice and in addition trust you find out what a powerful job that you’re carrying out teaching others through your blog post.
    I am certain you’ve never met all of us. http://oorogeorge.co.ke/2016/12/31/2016-female-club-hit-east-africa-akothee-sweet-love-ft-diamond-platnumz-official-video/
