Today I want to heighten awareness about a new journal that is perfect for quilters, as well as anyone who appreciates the art of quilting. This journal is a fun way for you to capture memories, musings, project planning and/or project progress notes, cooking notes, sketching, logging your dreams, thoughts about your kids (or gkids). or whatever you may want to log in a journal. The possibilities are endless. This journal would also make an excellent gift (Christmas is less than 10 weeks away). I also want to heighten your awareness of two different opportunities for you to win a copy!
Simple Reflections A Journal for Memories and Musings, by Kim Diehl is a stunning new journal packed with pictures of beautiful quilts, yummy recipes, and plenty of space for you to use as a journal.
Here is a quick peek from Youtube:
Relax, unwind, and make time in your busy day for a little reflection with beloved quilt designer Kim Diehl at your side. Kim’s gathered photographs of favorite quilts and more to share with you in this dazzling journal, packed with visual inspiration to enjoy year-round.
Among gorgeous photos of Kim’s work, you’ll find plenty of space to jot notes, write memorable events, and record inspiration wherever it may strike. Kim’s included seasonal recipes too! You’ll love bringing the beauty of Kim’s quilts with you wherever you go–a handy take-along size makes it easy to do. Patterns not included.
While journaling is popular, there are many that don’t realize that the process can take on many forms and and is often found as a simple process, with great rewards. However you decide to use a journal, don’t forget that this journal, by Kim Diehl, is really all about year-round inspiration. It is a high quality paperback journal, filled with yummy recipes and plenty of beautiful space for you to add what ever you wish to “your” journal.
When we consider the cost of a generic journal, or even a small cookbook, the cost for this journal is an amazing deal, which also makes this a wonderful item to purchase for a gift. This journal is a “must have” for fans of Kim Diehl, as well as quilters that enjoy journaling, but also a great tool for anyone that may want to consider pursuing journaling (quilting, or any topic).
I hope you get a chance to check out this journal at your favorite quilt shop. Of course, as this journal is so new they may not have it in stock simply as they’ve not heard of it, so I hope you’ll let them know that you’d like to see them make it available. You can also check it out online at Martingale or Amazon.
