I love visual journaling with Karen Dawn! She teaches us the creative outlet and emotional value of putting our thoughts and feelings down on paper with texture and color, pictures or drawings. Her positive attitude and open heart, causes everyone in her presence to feel totally comfortable and included. She opened me up to the secrets of visual journaling and keeps me coming back for more!
