A little nudge and a jump start!

I love the way a book will get your creative juices flowing. Recently I won The Complete Decorated Journal by Gwen Diehn when I entered a giveaway on Judy Nolan's blog, The Creative Journey. Oh, am I going to have some fun!


This book has so many creative ideas that I don't know which one to try first. Gwen features all kinds of journals and every technique you can imagine. If that wasn't enough, she also shows you how to make a variety of handmade journals.

Like I said, I am going to have a ton of fun with this book!

My thanks to Judy Nolan for this wonderful gift from her giveaway. Check out her latest giveaway for Clover Flower Frill Templates, and visit her Etsy shops for more fun.
