Pocket Journal No. 2 and more!

Whenever I take an extended break from this space, it takes forever to write that first post back; several drafts, usually, to remember how it's done.  The post you're reading is draft number six or possibly seven.

I've been spending a lot of time at the computer over the last month, drawing and writing and revamping.  I love it, dreaming up new prompt and doodle ideas, but it's nerve-wracking, too, because it takes time and patience and I wonder sometimes, in between doodles and prompts, whether there will be anyone out there to read them, write from them, or colour them in when I'm finally done.

And so it is that I find myself here today, on draft number six, maybe seven, feeling ready -- eager actually -- to talk a little about the doodling and the prompt writing. 

First, I'm so excited to tell you that Adventures in Guided Journaling: Pocket Journal No. 2, the second in my series of mini guided journals, is now listed in my shop.

It's available in the same four colours as Pocket Journal no. 1.

Plus a new colour.

Or two.

Or three.

It has 36 pages.  (I've added four more than in Pocket Journal No. 1.)

And the prompts are all new.

I hope you'll stop by and take a peek!

Also, I'm changing things up with my journal pages.  I've gone all the way back to Journal Page No. 1 to try to create a more unified set of pages.

I learned a lot between page 1 and page 50 and I'd like to bring it all together in a set of pages that truly reflects my vision for my work.  I've made some design changes and added new prompts and doodles.  There's even a new colour palette.

New pages, starting right back at Journal Page No. 1, should be ready to roll out soon.  I can't wait to show them to you!

Finally, how do you feel about stickers?  I'm thinking guided journaling stickers.  That you can mix and match.  And stick anywhere.  In any configuration you'd like.  Sounds like fun, right?

There's a whole bunch of journaling fun to be had in the coming weeks.  I hope you'll come along for the ride.
