Hi everyone, I'm so happy to be here!

I was lucky enough to stumble on this project over the weekend. Something caught my eye in my email box which led me to the net and there was the story about Robins journal. It was only moments later I was on her site reading all about it. It didn't take long for me to know this was a message from above. I read Robins book quite awhile ago and even corresponded with her a little. I understand and love how she "works through" things through her beadwork. I've done that in the past but in my busy life these days with my shop and new hubby it doesn't always seem like an option. I am currently pondering something and that is why this project appealed to me so much. I really need something to help me "work through" my issue so here I am!

I got myself a paper journal to jot down my ideas as they come to me, I have an awful memory! My head is full of wonderful things I'd like to do with this journal. I also write down meaningful words or phrases to inspire me. I'm keeping track of some of you too, your blogs and web sites.... so notes are abounding already.

I began my project immediately as I knew exactly what I wanted to say this month. I love, love the idea of visual journaling and it is my plan to show stages and events in my life as I travel through this great experience. I'm trying to set aside time each day to work on it. Very difficult, but if it means I have to get up an hour earlier I am willing to do that. This has really struck a cord with me and I am looking so very forward to seeing everyones progress as time goes by.

I've blah blahed enough, thanks for letting be a part of this group!

Hopefulheart, because I have just that.

Hi hopefulheart. Welcome. Boy, you sure sound excited. Keep reading the posts and you'll see this journal (journey) is seen as coming at the right time for many of us and seemed to be just what we needed.

Hope you keep on enjoying the journey and find what you need.
