Interested is slowing down and being more mindful? A Daily Journal to document artsy ideas and creative thoughts might be just what is needed. This journal includes “My Creative Day” journal templates (with prompts for daily journaling), blank art pages (for art journaling, sketching and jotting down ideas) and a special hand decorated cover to house it all.
