Journals for cancer patients

Shirley Nagel, a lady on one of the yahoo groups I belong to, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ARTHavenCreations_Friendships/ asked if anyone would be interested in making journals for cancer patients. The response from the group has been amazing! If you would like to join a group with friendly, sharing, amazing artists then I recommend this group. These are 3 journals I have made so far.


I really had a hard time making these because they are so much bigger than what I am used to but it was fun and I look forward to making more.

If you would like to make a journal for a cancer patient get in touch with Shirley at

Jennie, my project of having journals to give to cancer patients has taken off because of people like you. How very generous of you to make these. My heart is touched by everyone's response to this idea and I know someone's life will be brightened by your art. Thank you, shirley nagel srcattle@aol.com

The journals are very nice and I'm sure they will be truly appreciated. I'd love to know more details of how you made them before deciding whether I'd be interested or not in making any. Such as did you start with some sort of book and just decorate the cover or do you make the books from scratch, etc. They are lovely!
