What is it?

A keepsake to be passed down to your little dreamer

A momento to imprint those moments easily forgotten in the fog of early parenthood

A journal of the milestones and memories, the hilarious and heart-warming

A time capsule of your little one’s history, heritage and home

This project was hatched from the hearts of two dreamers – Em and Gem. Our worlds serendipitously collided and a special collaboration began, combining Emma’s delicate brushwork and elegant design, with Gemma’s heartfelt (and sometimes cheeky) words and experience of motherhood.

Who for?

Pregnant mummas, New Parents


I Have 2 tips for you.

I used the HP Sprocket that I was gifted for my birthday to print all the photos for my journal. Super nifty, especially if you love adorable stickable prints in seconds.

As its easy to forget things being a new mum I used “notes” a lot in my iphone and created a note for each month with prompts from the book so I had it handy to jot down anything that my daughter did to include that month.

My experience & why I love it.

This journal was even more beautiful than I imagined and simplistic which I love. Emma and Gemma have really thought this out well with all the prompts for each month and I loved that it didn’t take much thinking on my part as a new mum as life can be a bit of a blur in those early days/years.

I loved filling it in each month for my little one, adding photos and extra notes along the way. Creating a beautiful journal to her to look back on one day and know what that first year of her life was like.

I loved it so much I had to gift one to my beautiful friend when I found out she was pregnant.

My planet packaging rating. 5/5 stars.

The journal came in a beautiful fabric covered keepsake box the same colour as the journal.

All packaging was recyclable.


A perfect gift for a new mum or dad. Sometimes knowing what to get someone who has just had a baby is hard as there is so much on offer and so many unnecessary items out there. This is a gift for someone to keep forever and eventually pass on to the lucky child it was created for so a win win in my eyes.

Now I need to find a journal for her next stage in life as I would love to keep doing something like this for her until she is 16 or 18 or 21?

Update- I have found a toddler journal from Blueberry co, which I will do a post on soon. Very excited to use this one for Indi’s toddler years.
