Learn to 'Journal Your Way' with new book

No matter what your reason is for wanting to journal, you can find a number of wonderful techniques for creating your own custom-made book in Gwen Diehn’s “Journal Your Way, A Design-It-Yourself Guide” (Lark Crafts/$17.95).

Diehn shows readers how to use things like leaves, leather, old book covers, string, coins, beads, watercolor paper and more for making unique journals to write information in.

For a chance at winning a copy of the book, just email me at jbrown@detroitnews.com and tell me why you’re interested in creating handmade books. Please put the word “journal” in the subject line, and REMEMBER to include your name and address.

Good Luck!!!
