As a crafter, I am guilty of hogging storage space for my many inspired forays into the latest creative trends. As an author, I also love notebooks for journaling and plotting my stories. Thank you, Heather, for bridging the two together with the idea of reusing and recycling all I already have at my fingertips to create a new kind of book.
There are so many great analogies given by Heather, but I appreciated the Biblical account of the widowed woman searching her home for things of value. It was a powerful reminder that I have been blessed with so much.
However, after reading Heather's book, I don't feel guilty about stashing those blessings on a shelf. Instead, I am excited to create!"
