Your Artist Journal

Good morning. I have been working very hard lately on a new book: Your Artist Journal. I delight in the look of artists journals that are thick with collage and pockets with secret notes inside them, and have ribbons, lace, beads and charms dangling from their edges.

I wanted to create a book that was both the Artist Journal itself and the instructions and prompts to fill it for those who haven't yet tested the artist journal wave. (Or any of the rest of us who just can't get enough!) Well, it is ready for publication - just about. I would like to have a few people test it. My friend Iris has agreed to give it a try and I would like four more opinions. Here is the deal: leave me a comment with your address or write to me at with your address and I will send Your Artist Journal out to the first four respondents. Give it a trial run for a week and then send me back the survey that I am enclosing. You get to keep your journal. You may blog about your progress, and if you send your blog address I will link you here. Please only respond if you have time to do this within a week - time is a bit of the essence: I have a projected publication date of October 1st (presentation at an important venue) and I would like time to work in any suggestions that you all may have.
Oh! And those flower-y looking circles in my last post are the shavings from sharpening colored pencils! Aren't they pretty? I love them. :)

I can't wait to hear from you!
