My new journal is the same as the old except it's a soft cover. I'm a little apprehensive to see how it holds up - the edges are getting scraped up already - but I appreciate how much lighter it is.
Making the cover page wasn't really a priority with my last journal. But this time around, I was inspired to jazz it up a bit more. I guess I was in a creative, coloring mood. For the main cover page, I drew Kreacher (who is one of my favorite characters from the Harry Potter series; I love him so much) and wrote in the phrase that activates the Marauder's Map because it's so cheeky and suits an adventurous spirit.
I love my little journal already! I'm hoping to do a little more sketching in this one, though, I'm not sure how that ambition will work out. I had similar hopes for the last one, but it just wasn't that practical to bring colored pencils and markers with me everywhere.
