I've been eyeing this shell journal for months but always ultimately resist because of how impractical it is. I often have a journal handy for quick notes or to doodle in, but what really would be the purpose of a tiny journal nestled in a pretty shell? It is too special to waste on grocery lists, but too petite and oddly shaped for more complicated projects. I suppose you could fill it with handwritten lines of poetry and gift it to someone special (um, but I want one for myself!) or use it to collect stamp prints from your travels (since many National monuments in the US or Cathedrals and temples abroad have rubber stamps on site)...Until I find a suitable reason to purchase one this remains on my wishlist.
