Customised Notebooks And Journals

https://www.coloringdiary.com/

Have you ever wanted a personalised notebook for yourself? Maybe one with graphics or boxes or writing sections that suited you? Perhaps you wanted one with detailed, zentangle-type colouring pages or with patterns or affirmations or possibly puzzles?

Maybe you want a custom journalĀ  or custom workbook that you could use with your clients? Maybe give them something to keep records of how they are progressing or something to keep them on track after finishing a session? Perhaps you are a team leader and want a team book that your teamies can all do at the same time and feel part of a large group, even if they cannot meet in person? This doesn’t have to be a business book. You may want something fun with colouring or puzzles or something that suits a particular area or region.

Grumble Journal

You may even want a journal that clients keep secret. Well, that is, at least from their nearest family or colleagues. Those are usually the ones who cause others stress, even if they don’t mean to. Your client can record the thoughts that are causing them stress in the journal, to keep as a record to discuss with you. Then they do not need to say their thoughts out loud to those causing them difficulty. You can even keep a grumble journal on a personal basis and destroy it – burn or shred when full – to write out your annoyance and get rid of it.

How To Create A Custom Workbook

You may have wondered how to create a workbook that fits with your particular consultancy or management training or whether there might be a suitable journal available online that you could direct them to. And then you’ve found you didn’t have the time or knowledge to create something suitable because you were too busy with consultancy or training? You may also have found that nothing already available on line suited your business or needs. Of course, it’s always possible to ask your clients to keep notes on their learning in a lined schoolbook or reporter’s spiral notebook but that doesn’t look very professional and it’s also unlikely to motivate your clients to keep up with the work or to progress their learning after finishing a series of sessions.

Here are a few of the workbooks and journals that www.coloringdiary.com has available on Amazon that can be used for teams or clients you may be working with. The ones below are shown on Amazon USA but all these books are also available on Amazon UK. They are also available on all the other Amazon country pages, though you may need to search by the actual title. Just for the avoidance of doubt, these books are all written in English, no matter which Amazon site you obtain them from! They could, however, be customised (see below).


It might seem that customer service is all one subject, but what if you work with clients who work with dogs or cats or other small animals? Your customer service training course will be totally different from training provided for volunteers working with the homeless or those with debt problems or auto engineers working with truck drivers. For instance, you might want a customer service workbook, if that is what you are working on with clients.

On the other hand, you may be training your clients in time management or decluttering or personal development, or how to set their own business strategy or aims and objectives or how to manage money? Each of these needs a different workbook or journal for clients to record their ideas, understanding and how they practise the tips and strategies you provide.

Of course, it’s always possible to help your clients customise their own journals and this may be perfectly feasible for some types of consultancy or training. You can help your clients build and bind their own journal with their own kinds of material with handmade designs and including prompts, magazine pictures, quotes and even poetry, recipes or stories that keep them on track. This is often a good practice for drawing, keeping poetry or keeping recipes, for instance, especially if these are printed off from online or cut from magazines. There are also many templates on line that can help with this. You can also find suitable blank notebooks in speciality stationery stores.

But what do you do if you need a customised workbook or journal that your clients can pick up and use immediately? One that contains the kinds of strategies, tips and hints that suit the training or consultancy you are providing? You have three options if you want to work with www.coloringdiary.com.

(A) You can describe a workbook or journal that would suit your consultancy or training course and have us design and create it. This could contain your own logo, text and contact details, plus of course the workbook items you want, whether affirmations, writing pages, calendar, weekly to do lists, puzzles and colouring pages, etc. Once you are satisfied, we will then provide a PDF that will be unique to you and your business. You can then send this PDF to a printer of your choice who will print and send you the number of books you choose. This is the more expensive of the two options, as you pay for the design and the printing up front. It is, however, the most suitable option for established consultancies and training organisations, who run a number of similar sessions or courses and know what they want for their clients.

(B) You can describe a workbook or journal that would suit your consultancy or training course and have us design and create a generic version that can be offered on a site such as Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk, etc. This would not contain your logo or contact details, as the book would be available for anyone to buy online. You would then direct your clients to buy this book online, in order to gain the best advantage from the consultancy or training they are undertaking. There is no upfront cost for you with this option. You get a book online that suits your type of consultancy or training and you recommend that your clients buy this, as part of their work in this area. There are areas with blank spaces in this type of book (such as on the back cover) where you can place a sticker to remind your clients of your name, address and logo. In this case, you might wish to buy a number of these books ahead of a course or consultancy assignment and place your sticker before passing them out to clients. With this option, either your clients purchase the book or you buy only the number of books you need with no minimum order or upfront art costs.

(C) Similar to option (B), you can have one of our current book offerings translated into a language of your choice. If we incur any costs in translating, these would be for your account, otherwise, you can help us translate the book at no upfront cost. We can also customize our books to offer US or UK spelling at no extra cost.

Business Books And Coloring

Coloring can be helpful with work as well as relaxation. The need to concentrate on coloring particular areas in the way you want will occupy your hands and the left side of your brain, freeing up the right side of your brain to create new patterns and come up with fresh ideas. So any time you need to find a new way to do something or need a brand, spanking new idea, try coloring in a complex picture or using your blending skills on a simpler picture. You will be surprised as to what ideas pop into your head and thoughts that can be put into action. Of course, it’s important to record all those ideas and there are several coloring journals available to keep notes on these, even while you are relaxing with coloring. You can also color in a weekly planner, where you note down all your appointments or your to do list.

 

Glass Blowing At a Glance

https://www.coloringdiary.com/Glass blowing is a unique technique of making glass art, which involves inflating hot glass with the help of a blowpipe (that’s the official term). The person doing the blowing of air into the blowpipe is called glass blower, or gaffer. Depending on which type of glass blowing techniques you are going to use you could do this manually and on small scale, or with the help of machines at large scale.

When choosing a glass blowing machine there are many factors to consider. First, you must determine whether or not the glass blowing equipment is for home or business use, and also how much equipment you need. It is possible to purchase glass blowing machines commercially, but these machines are often very large, and require practice and experience to handle safely. A good option for those who are interested in glass blowing but do not want to invest in commercial equipment is to opt for glass blowing kits as these kits include all of the equipment necessary to begin making glass art at home.

Lampworking

Glass blowing is becoming popular again, as modern technology enables artists to create art at home using modern techniques, and one of these new techniques is called lampworking. This technique uses a gas fueled (blow) torch to heat up the glass, after which you can shape it using various specialty utensils and tools that are designed specifically for at-home usage.

There are two types of glass blowing techniques: wet and dry. Dry glass blowing uses no fuel while wet glassblowing uses a combination of fuel and flame to heat up the glass. The resulting glass pieces are sometimes hard to make and they often break more easily than regular glass.

Tips For the Beginner Gaffer

Some of the best tips for the beginners address the preventing of your glass piece from cracking. And the first step to avoid this is by not heating the glass too much, as this can cause significant cracking once it cools down.

Another good tip is that when heating the glass, you should always keep a safe distance from the glass you are working on, as well as wearing safety glasses. After heating the glass, try to sit back and watch it carefully, so you can see if any cracking occurs.

If you’re interested in lampworking, or even making glass art in a studio there are plenty of opportunities to learn glass blowing from the comfort of your home, and when you’ve grasped the basic techniques go practice in a studio. You can also try different techniques at home, and look for glass blowing shops that have more experienced personnel. After you learn the basics of lampworking, you’ll soon be on your way to having beautiful glass pieces for display or to use on special occasions.

If you think this craft might be something interesting to try, why not write it down in a diary or business ideas journal and add more information to it that you can find at Learn Glassblowing?
