Mum's Story is a journal that has been designed by me, Sarah, after losing my own mum in recent years. This journal is designed to be completed by a mother to give to her daughter or son.
The prompts and questions within this journal are all things that I wish I knew about my mum, they are also anecdotes that I want to record in my own handwriting to pass down to my children.
In an age where technology is replacing many common traditions, recording ones memories and thoughts in a paper journal is timeless and serves as a sentimental keepsake that money cannot buy.
This journal makes a beautiful gift for a new mum.

What is the best way to stick photos into the journals?
We use Sticky Dots/Glue Dots which can be purchased from Officeworks. We have been using these for years and all photos have remained securely in place.
Can my journal be personalised?
At the moment, we don't offer personalisation. Due to current manufacturing and supply chain delays we have made a conscious decision to not offer personalisation as we want to solely focus on getting our core product out as quickly as possible.
I want to purchase some School Years Journals but my child doesn't start school for another 2 years, are the years pre-printed?
That's fine! The years (ie. 2022, 2023) are not pre-printed in the journals. You will write the years in yourself, so it doesn't matter if your child is already at school or not starting until 2025!
Where are you based and can I collect my order?
We are based in Melbourne, Victoria. Unfortunately we cannot offer pickup as our orders are dispatched from a residential address and we don't have the insurance to allow us to offer this service. However, all orders are dispatched within 48 hours (excluding pre-orders) and we offer an express post option. If you need your order SUPER urgently please reach out and we will do our best to get it in the mail same day.
In the state I live in, we don't refer to the 1st year of Primary School as something different to other states, can I change it?
Weirdly, it seems as though each state in Australia refers to the first year of Primary School as something different (ie. Prep, Foundation, Kindy etc). In an attempt to cater for everyone we refer to first year of Primary School as "First Year of Primary School". The book then goes from Grade 1 to Year 12.
Please also note, the cover of the journal now says "Primary School to Secondary School"
Still have a few questions or not quite sure about something? No worries! I'm here to help. Just shoot me a message using our contact form and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.
Always wondered what we would do with all the folders of school photos we had. Love that there are questions to ask and memories to write down and look back on too. :)
Exceptional Quality exactly what I was looking for, I purchased the school Journal for school photos, absolutely Love it.
I can’t wait to start filling it all in.
It came super quick and is exactly what I expected.
Arrived so quickly and they are just what we were looking for!
The Journal is beautiful I absolutely love it. I think I ordered the wrong one as I thought it had kinder years it as well. But none the less it’s beautiful, well made and well set out.
Great book. It’s well bound and made, so should last for years. Would be good if there was a couple of pages to put photos in for each year, but there’s a few at the back which will work just as well. Would recommend buying.
Beautiful, quality books
With my little bloke being severely ASD, when I got my book I cried, knowing I will be able to literally watch him grow and that that time to reflect back on his life. He is in grade 1. So I didn’t miss anything except prep. With our lives being filled with appointments all the time, I over time I will be able to reflect on him all in one book. This book means the world. Thank you so much. ❤️
Baby Memory Journal - Birth to 5 Years
Love the book, I just thought it was 2 not combined into 1
These beautiful books arrived and I’m so happy with them I am currently looking through all the school photos and finding their new home such a great idea
Bought the navy blue, mustard and pink books and they are beautifully designed and created. Something my children will cherish for years to come. My kids can now look in one place for their school photos and progression through the years which I am happy about. Had a slight issue with the order but the customer service was amazing! Very reliable company! Highly recommend!
