Day 26 - Full Circle

When Janette Ponciroli walked into the Quinn McDonald journaling class at Studio Crescendoh I immediately recognized her - but from where? We ended up sitting next to one another. I asked the usual litany of questions - do you take a lot of classes here? Have you been to Glitterfest?   The responses were all negative- couldn't figure it out. Then she pulled out her journal. I gasped "Oh my gosh, I made that!" Then Janette said what every journal maker wants to hear, "I've been saving it for something special".

Almost a year ago I spoke at an event which Janette attended. I created coptic journals for the guests.  I wanted the women to have a beautiful journal where they could write about their art, dreams, progress, life - a safe place. I made the journals and off they went. Janette's journal came full circle! What a delight to see her using it! She is pursuing her creative dreams in 2012 --what a privilege to be a small part of her journey.

Thanks for stopping by
