“Beautiful journal. Was a gift for my son, he plays dnd. To say he loved it is an understatement. Packaged lovely. You can see the care and love put into it and it was received the same way. Would highly recommend buying.” – Tara

“What a gorgeous, masterfully crafted piece I can’t put down or stop looking at. Beautifully bound, riveted and detailed delicately with my initials on the inside pocket and the bee on the cover. I can’t recommend this purchase or the sellers enough! I can’t wait to keep filling it and showing others. Well worth the wait for its long journey and will be a treasured piece I’ll use for many years.” – Jonathan
