In the summer of 1997 while vacationing on the west coast of Michigan, I went in search of a travel journal. I wanted a journal with specific spaces for recording information such as places I visited and people met. I only found a wide variety of blank journals. Almost immediately the idea was born! With just four titles initially, I began selling my journals at craft shows and personally calling on gift stores throughout Michigan. Everyone experiences important events worth remembering. Whatever your age or passion, keeping a journal is a great way to capture and recall your thoughts and ideas.
