In Which I Share 3 Gorgeous, Top Notch Journals * The Giveaway


Those private, reflective books where pen and ink are wielded freely.  Their blank pages become open canvases where we keep track of our lives, sort through our stuff, commemorate what we hold dear.

Sometimes they're a lifeline to sanity, to what is most true about ourselves, to our deepest yearnings.  Other times they're a direct link to God above ... or a winsome invitation to unfurl our stirred up creative energies.

Journals are designed to sustain our unwieldy stories, paint our wildest dreams, gently cradle the deepest visions of our souls, or display our hard won legacies.  

Prayer request journals.  Bullet journals.  Gratitude journals.  Travel journals.

Books-I-Read journals.  Pregnancy journals.  Bible journals.  Gardening journals.  Weight loss journals.  Sermon note-taking journals.

Journals to walk you through medical crises.  Journals as scrapbooks, doodling books, dream books, planners.

Your imagination sets the boundaries and the sky's the limit.

As an avid journaler for more than a decade, of course I said, 'well, yes please, thank you very much' to the Ellie Claire product development team when they offered to send me not one but THREE gorgeous, high quality, top notch journals as part of their Art Journal Campaign.  Needless to say, I'm delighted to join the party.

I knew right then and there that I was going to share one of these beauties with one of my faithful readers as yet another Christmas Giveaway!

These journals would make stunning Christmas gifts for your favorite writer / artist / creator.  {And be sure to include a selection of my favorite pens as an extra bonus!}

Or choose the volume that's calling your name, wrap it up all festive and pretty ... and sneak it quietly under the tree.  And try to look completely surprised on Christmas morning when Santa places your carefully selected treasure into your eagerly waiting hands.
