Take a look through the prompts and find one that gets your brain-juice flowing. Then find a page that lets you write your thoughts or make your art…whatever you want to do! There are no “right” answers in this journal, no correct way to be creative. Go for it!
Two Styles Available!
You can get the journal in paperback binding or spiral-bound. The spiral-bound uses a sturdy, professional-grade plastic coil binding designed to last. (The spiral-binding is on back order until December 1. Shipments with this binding will be delayed.)
A Great Gift!
