"They were both gifts and the recipients loved the journal! We are in the New England area so it hit home a bit!"
"Hi Carol, Yes, I really like the journal. I like the size of it, for slipping into my purse, in my backpack, or in my carry-on when traveling. I love the cover! Sentimental, nostalgic, hopeful all at once. I enjoy the quotes and sayings you’ve chosen too! They help me reflect and write from my heart ❤️ I especially love your drawings of the flowers with the heart! I would appreciate more of your sketches in future journals. I also like the use of the color red. It adds a “signature “ to your work. Thanks for creating Carol! You help me to be inspired."
One stormy winter a Nor'easter hit Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
The cover is a photo of Barristers Walk, the street our house was on in the village of Dennis.
The wind was blowing like Mariah and snow was flying everywhere. It was incredible!
Mother Nature at her best, I always say.
I decided to take my camera and go outside to capture all the beauty of virgin snow covering the ground, unspoiled by humans.
Later, after I downloaded this picture, it made me think about someone walking into the unknown, unable to predict what lies ahead, but determined not to let fear get in their way.
I asked my sister to draw a woman walking, determined to face whatever life throws her way.
The woman reminded me of my mother and grandmother, my father and grandfather, and so many other women and men around the world who conquered life with unwavering determination and an inner strength so powerful nothing would stop them . . . the main ingredients to Create Your Own Path.
I like to add one last thought that, I must admit, I'm constantly reminding myself of . . .
Don't be afraid to explore the unknown ... it might bring you exactly what you want.
