Do that thing update

Fresh from the printer . . .

You guys.  I did it.

And now I'm so full of nervous energy that I almost can't type.  Which, as you probably already know, is par for the course around here. 

This is the project I described in my last post.  It's here.  And what is it exactly?  It's a pocket-sized guided journal that you can take with you wherever you go.  Simply made and staple-bound, with thick pages for notes and coloured markers, it features all new prompts and doodles, even new categories of prompts.  There isn't a single blank page to be found.  Not even the back cover is free of my doodling and wondering and querying. 

You guys, I couldn't be more proud of this, my first printed journal and I couldn't let the moment pass without sharing it with you, who have been so good to me through thick and thin, through 49 journal pages (with more to come) and a whole lot of wondering where it all might lead.

I think this just might be it.

Tomorrow I'll be back with a sneak peek inside.  And sometime next week, I'll list a few in my shop and we'll continue on, as we always have, from there.

hugs,
Christie
