Rifle Paper Company—The Botanicals Collection, a Lovely Way to Collect Your Thoughts

By Posted on 2 min read 2496 views



know it it tempting to do everything online: read, watch TV, shop, write, but I still like to write things down by hand occasionally. I do work on a computer quite a bit, but when I received these journals as a gift for my Birthday, I was reminded of the joy of doing things by hand.


It is nice to have something tangible that you own. I like to keep one of these notebooks handy so I can jot down ideas that come to me, and that I can later use on the blog. I find that trying to do this kind of thing on a phone rather annoying. Seems I can’t quite type fast enough to my liking and then I just end up frustrated. So, having a journal or notebook handy when an idea strikes, is a wonderful way to have a collection of your ideas all in one place. And to me it is easier to flip a few binded pages, then to do all that scrolling on a phone.




Plus they are absolutely beautiful to look at. From the lovely illustrations to the wonderful palette and the exquisite interior they are truly something to behold. I was so surprised and pleasantly rewarded when I opened them and discovered the gold pineapple illustration motif. It is details like this that you just can’t get in cyberspace. This specific set is currently sold out. But be sure to check out the botanical collections currently available at RiflePaperCompany.com. They are just as lovely, and there is plenty to choose from.

    These are some seriously pretty notebooks! I love the look of the covers. I still like to actually write things down from time to time. I worry that I might forget how if I don’t anymore.

    I carry a small notebook in my bag but I am so guilty of neglecting it! It’s terrible and I’ve the habit of using my iPhone for everything. I think I’m one of those people who will curl up into a ball and die if I ever lose my iPhone. LOL!

    I write in a journal every single night and I’ve been doing it for 10 years! I now own over 60 filled journals and you’re right, it’s a wonderful thing to own something tangible like that. These journals in particular are so beautiful!

    These are darling! I love notebooks, journals, basically anything that looks like a book but filled with empty sheets just makes me happy!

    I’ve got a “thing” for notebooks. I have kept diaries since I was about 11 years old and still write down things on a daily basis. These notebooks here looks absolutely beautiful.

    These are beautiful! And I totally agree. Sometimes I just need to write it down on a notebook with a pen and not fumble through my phone and deal with autocorrects. 🙂

    Beautifully photographed. I think it’s important to always do things by hand from time to time, even though technology allows us to get away with many tasks at the slide of a button. I still keep journals, and still do quick sketches in my notebooks.
