Always…The Heart Leads Journal

Always…The Heart Leads

Good day friends, and welcome to Leisure Lane…

Always…The Heart Leads is another decorated journal I made, this time for a writer friend.  She has been interested in brightening up her surroundings, so I thought the rose buds were a perfect way to do that.

As you can see, I’ve kept it simple, but Oh so pretty.  It closes with a satin ribbon, which I also used as a ‘marker’ so she can find her place more easily.  Using what I had in stock, a  little lace here, a rose bud there with some pearls, and voila!  I do so need to replenish my supplies…I wanted to do that this week, but other things came up, and that desire will have to wait for the moment.

The inside cover

The journal is gracing my home until which time I can give it to my friend.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing this with me today.  May your heart lead you in the direction best suited for your life and purpose.  May you find solace and comfort in knowing that you are loved, guided, and guarded in heavenly places.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Marianne♥
