We all have thoughts, feelings, and experiences that we want to preserve forever--and a journal makes the perfect keepsake. This inspiration-packed guide, with beautiful watercolor art throughout, offers a wealth of creative ideas for creating attractive journals from scratch as well as embellishing store-bought ones. The 21 creative projects range from a seasonal journal that features stunning handmade papers decorated with natural items (such as twigs and leaves) to a lovely book made from travel postcards that opens like a fan. Other exquisite suggestions include an accordion-style booklet for writing down all the must-remember things your kids say, a romantic journal, and a sweet little spiral-bound book for collecting favorite handed-down recipes.

Was recommended this DIY-Journal book by some fellow calligraphers. Janet has interesting ideas throughout this book on journal making, which can apply from memorable events to meditation and travel memories. All the illustrations are beautifully done by her. This book is a work of art in itself. Am looking forward to trying out a dieting journal to record healthy food/exercise routines!
