Keeping a journal has transformed my art. It’s hard to believe initially I resisted keeping a journal of any kind, as writing is my profession and I didn’t want to do more of it at home. Surely I keep visual journals and sketchbooks as well, but I started by keeping a simple journal of things I was grateful for every day.

I tried to list 100 things to be grateful for in my life - went well over!

I got this idea from Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach, and also the idea of a Discovery Journal. From these humble beginnings came my sketchbooks and quilting journals I’ll be sharing with you later.

    I’m writing to let you understand what a superb experience my girl had going through your blog. She figured out plenty of details, most notably what it is like to have an amazing teaching character to have folks quite simply have an understanding of specific tortuous things. You undoubtedly exceeded people’s expectations. Thanks for churning out the great, safe, informative and even fun tips on that topic to Kate.
