A Celebration Journal — an intentional alternative to the greeting cards Mothers receive from their children
We're on a mission to enrich family traditions and create a more meaningful celebration experience between Mother and child. We designed a Celebration Journal with this purpose in mind.
Using our journal is easy. The design has been left open-ended to cater to families of all situations and sizes.
1. CREATE — When a special occasion is coming up, ask your child to draw, color, or write a message in the journal.
2. SHARE —Instead of giving you a greeting card, your child can share their entry in the journal with you.
3. REPEAT — Display your journal in a safe place in between celebrations. Use the journal for any occasion that is special to you.
Here are four reasons why you should ditch the greeting cards and use a Journal instead:
What's in the Journal?
- 90 open-ended entry spreads, offering many possibilities and uses
- Artistic & writing prompts
- A "Dates to Remember" page
- "Progress Tracker" pages
Hi, I'm Lucy.
Wife, mother, graphic designer, and owner of Preserve Journals.
Behind the curtain, we are a family of five, Lucy and Paden, and our three children. I truly believe in the principle of fewer but better, and strive to simplify and streamline my life. I also love to create memorable experiences with my children, in particular on special occasions. I became frustrated with the traditional greeting card experience on occasions like Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, and my birthday. As a mother of three and graphic designer, aspiring to live with intention and mindfulness, I determined that I could solve this problem.

Our friends and family — We could not have done this without the support of our parents, siblings, and friends. You all have contributed in different ways, some in private and practical ways behind the scenes, and others in very public ways. However you have helped us, your role has been vital and we would not be here today if it weren't for you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Our God — For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Romans 11:36
Risks and challenges
While we have experience working with printers, we are working on a new product, with a new manufacturer. We have high standards for our brand and our products, and have carefully selected our manufacturer after having prototypes made by several different suppliers. Although we stand by our product, when making a first large order from a manufacturer there is always a risk of quality control issues and delays. We will be doing our best to monitor both quality and schedule once our journals have been ordered, to ensure that our backers receive a product that meets the standard they're expecting.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
