New journals in the shop and a bit of creative experimentation, too!

One of the very best things about journaling is that there are no limits. You can write as much or a little as you like. You can draw, you can collage, you can make audio of video recordings. You can delve deeply into the mysteries of your soul one day and record point-form snippets about nothing in particular the next.

I am in love with the possibilities that journaling brings. I love the search for meaning. I love gathering up all of the ideas and values that are most important to me and looking at them from as many different perspectives as possible. Most of all, I love the surprises, the discoveries about myself and the world around me, that happen along the way.

I strive to bring all of these elements to each of my guided journals and I'm thrilled to let you know that I've recently added a new spiral-bound journal to the collection in my Etsy shop -- Volume 4!

I've also been experimenting with the idea of adding a little something extra to a small number of my spiral-bound journals: a little piece of original artwork in the form of a hand-lettered quote (painted in gouache by me!) and an accompanying, hand-painted (and secret!) prompt -- all tucked into an envelope inside the back cover.

No extra charge, just a personal touch, created with care, from me to you.

These two sets were early attempts. Just to sort out how it might work:

After that, I created two more sets with two different quotes and I've just put them in the shop. (In the first one, the quote and the prompt are a surprise!)

I've called them Special Edition journals and you can find them here and here. If this is something you'd like to see more of, please let me know -- I'll get out my paint and paper and create additional listings.

Wishing you lots of inspiration in your journals and your travels,
Christie
