Featured Review on Folk Art Journals
I purchased this to give to one of my dearest friends for her trip to Africa. It arrived at her house only the day before she left, and she immediately called me, in awe of its beauty. She told me later that it was so inspiring that she wrote in that journal almost every day of her trip, capturing precious once-in-a-lifetime moments with some of her extended family members.
