 “Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.” -Creative Minds Journal 

The Creative Minds Journal gives you permission to create yourself. We don’t believe in guidelines and rules when it comes to you paving your path. Many lost journalers out there are often seeking to find the answer to this question; “Will this journal help me with what I’m looking for?” This is usually what we ask when buying a new journal. No matter how many journals you have or what you use them for, our minds and spirit are meant to be free so we can explore new possibilities. So why use journals that are limiting you? 

Creative Minds Journal is a free-form journaling system for those that choose to live their lives, think outside of the box and reach their best potential. If you are a free thinker, this system will change the way you plan your life.

Creative Minds Journal is a merge between creativity and productivity. No rules, no guidelines, just you and the journal. It’s a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all of the above

There’s no reason to sacrifice creativity because you’re too busy. We got that taken care of for you! The Creative Minds Journal comes with a Planning sticker pack for you to create your life in days, weeks and months. All you have to do is peel and stick them to the pages; you control your destiny. 

Do you like to use paints and markers? We got you covered too! With all the fun markers and paints out there, we pride ourselves in the quality of our 100g paper. We were tired of having our paints and inks bleed through other journals. Enough with using thin paper! This is tough enough for artist types yet delicate enough for creative writers. 

 "Drawing with pencil, pen, or brush on paper isn't just for artists. For anyone who actively exercises the brain, doodling and drawing are ideal for making ideas tangible" -Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology 

 "Creating flow regularly is the key to mastery." - Psychology Today 

While the journal is a freeform system, everyone that backs this campaign automatically gets enrolled in our 21 Days of Mindfulness Challenge. This challenge will give you a strong framework on how to start using the system while giving you the flexibility to expand however you see fit. Creative Minds Journal is a merge between creative thinking and the act of being productive. That is the balance you’re missing in life. As part of the challenge, there will be components of sketching and creative expression that you can do if you are totally new to doodling or are the second coming of Picasso. There will be exercises to help you get into a state of flow and quiet down your prefrontal cortex. 

Johns Hopkins neuroscientist Charles Limb found "the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain best known for self-monitoring, deactivated. Self-monitoring is the voice of doubt, that defeatist nag, our inner critic." Once you engage your creativity, you turn off your inner critic. We have so much more to share with you once you become a backer!

While developing the system, we fell in love with some of the ways our beta testers tried the journal out. One of our testers took the time to carefully draw in calendars, reminders, and dates. Now for the rest of us that aren't as artistically included yet, or just want a super crisp looking layout, we've developed a sticker pack! This sticker pack allows you to take your journal game to the next level. The sticker pack includes 10 pages of organizational stickers such as dates, weeks, months and organizational titles. Customize and mold your journal however you want to fit your needs.

 

 

Stickers include: Months, Days, To Do's, Mind Dump, AM, PM, Monthly Calendars, Priorities, Accomplishments, Learnings, Gratitude Stickers, Re-evaluations and much more!

 

The non-toxic and high quality water palette comes with quick-dry paint,  12 break-resistant paint blocks colors (Black, Brown, Royal Blue, Sky Blue, Forest Green, Green, Red, Orange, Mustard, Yellow, White)  and a soft synthetic paintbrush.

Push your creativity to the next level with weekly water color paintings.

 21 Days of Mindfulness challenge with Ann Le

 

 

Ann Le is a creative journaler, serial entrepreneur, mom to a super cool teenager and latte enthusiast. 8 years ago, she had it with helping her partner run a tax /accounting business and so she started a Youtube channel where she can enthusiastically share her love for creating fun ideas with like minded people. She is a self taught producer, videographer and editor to her own lifestyle channel - Ann Le. Because of her passion, her channel organically flourished with now over 130 million views from around the world. On her channel, she shares her creativity through uplifting How-To content that inspires her viewers and readers to try something new. Ann publishes regular weekly content on her channel as well as her other social platforms. She enjoys engaging with her diverse community of supporters by responding to comments or meeting them in real life at events.

With Ann’s love in journaling, she experimented with multiple journaling systems and styles but felt like there was something missing. Most journals are design and structure for one specific reasons - self development, planning or doodling which felt restrictive to what Ann wanted. After the persuasion of her supporters on youtube and the frustration of thin journaling paper - Ann decided to create her dream journal - Creative Minds Journal.

Risks and challenges

Delivery time: In manufacturing, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill on time. We've added some buffer into our lead time to account for this possibility. Regardless, we will be extremely hands on with our suppliers to ensure that everything is moving forward smoothly.

Duty/VAT charges: If you live outside of the US, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.
Customs:Some countries are BYOC - bring your own customs. Check your local shipping terms, and we'll do our best to get The Flight Pack in your global hands ASAP!

We'll update you frequently about our progress, and if there are any blips along the way, we'll let you know!
