ART DOODLE LOVIN' Blog Hop Express

Hey guys! Welcome to my little stop on the "Art Doodle Love" express. I'm sharing a video of 3 spreads and some major love for "Art Doodle Love" by Dawn DeVries Sokool. 

Honestly, I can't speak highly enough about the space we need. To explore ourselves deeply and compassionately. To let go and sit inside huge cyclones of surrender. 

What I love most about this "Journal of Self-Discovery" is the prompts, the colorfulness, and the pages. Oh the pages. I am so impressed with how much they can endure and hold (as you can see in my explorations above). Sturdy, velvety, and the perfect size. A lovely combination. I'm really inspired flipping through it every time and honestly can't wait to fill it. I've been a journal keeper all my life. A composition book has always been alongside me. Moving through this experience I look back at progress, at the wisdom I had in my 20's, at the experiences I put down, my dreams and pictures. The deep down messes. All of it. I savor this life, this journey. Every little strand. This book is something special. . . I knew it from the moment I held it. Without giving away all the secrets, it's been a true gem for me on this road. Of self-exploration, of self-discovery.

Art Doodle Love is here. Just the right place. Just the right time.

If this book speaks to you, and if you need a little nudge on your journey to self-discovery: it's available right here.
