A Beautiful Gift....



I wanted to share the beautiful work of Dawn Devries Sokol. I opened my mailbox the other day to the most amazing, handcrafted, personalized journal from my sweet and generous friend! Dawn and I were driving and rooming buddies at the ZNE Convention in Pleasanton, CA last August. We shared some wonderful conversations about creativity, life, art and our dreams and goals. I was so taken with Dawn's journals and so inspired by her unique lettering styles. She gave some great pep talks on overcoming your resistance to the blank page and just diving in! So what a surprise and truly a blessing to receive this one-of-a-kind treasure from her! Each phrase she choose really touched my heart! Be sure to take a peek at Dawn's blog for loads of art journaling inspiration!


Dawn is the author of the newly published book, "1000 Artist Journal Pages", which is filled with the most stunning collection of art journaling from artists all over the world. I am anxiously awaiting the opening of her Etsy store where she will be offering her original art journals and other treasures soon!

I am getting caught up on my favorite blogs this week, after a long several weeks of not being able to get onto the Internet much. I so enjoyed my visit to yours--your art is always, ALWAYS so beautiful, as is your wonderful spirit. Thank you for being an inspiration to me. Smiles, Jann
