Ellie Claire Gifts - ART JOURNALS!!!!

Today I am so excited to show you some beautiful journals. I'm really excited about them. I have 3 to show you. They are great gifts. Check out Ellie Claire Gifts on Instagram!

 The first book you should buy is the Faith & Lettering Journal. What is wonderful about this journal is that it takes someone like me, who is artistically minded and mildly talented but lacks instruction. I love lettering. I love journaling. But I don't know what I'm doing.

THIS Art Journal has a "How to Use this Book" section and when I saw it I breathed a sigh of relief because, as I said before, I didn't know how to use this book! It is designed to be a safe place to practice prompts, try your hand at different styles, and grow in your lettering skills. Plus, they used the Oxford comma, so you know these guys are legit and intelligent! Also, there's bonus points for the pen elastic on the binding. I love that!

The next book you need to buy (or reverse the order) is the Illuminate Your Story Journal.
This is another beautiful art journal. It took me through a brief history of illuminated letters then listed suggested supplies followed by its own "how to use this journal" section.

If you're like me, you might remember that old meme about how to draw an owl. "First draw a circle, then finish the owl." It's a joke depicting the hopeless feeling a lot of us feel trying to follow art directions. Rest assured, these are NOT like that! You can do this!

Think of how awesome your Christmas cards can look once you practice in these journals!

The final journal is my favorite! The Illustrated Word is more of your standard journal except it's beautiful. Each page has an embellishment from historic religious artwork and several coloring pages that are inspired from that artwork. It is beautiful!

Go to to see a full selection. Pick up a set for yourself as well as for the aspiring artist in your life. You can even use this as your homeschool art class. Every journal has nice thick pages which work well for pencil, pens, and markers.

are you thinking about a christmas present for a young christian

Or are you thinking about a Christmas present for an older Christian? Or maybe you are thinking about getting some direction for yourself.

If you know a Christian who wants to feel closer to Christ and know the God of their salvation (maybe that's you), I cannot suggest more that you get them a copy of WARPS. If the Amazon price is outside your price range, I happen to know that Recycled Books in Denton has WARPS for $10. And I have copies available as well. -just contact me! I want you in the Word of God more than anything and if you can do it on your own, wonderful! Buy this book for your mentee! If you need help, get a mentor or join D-Group or read this book! These are all great options!

If someone you know needs help to see why they should be in the Word and practicing spiritual disciplines beyond just going to church on Sunday, buy them this book! I've not heard a single ounce of bad feedback on it. The newest edition has a list of questions for further discussion. I hope that it will aide in your edification and sanctification!

And lest we forget, there is a prayer journal as well. It has helped me to focus and worship in my daily prayers. It is beautiful. I hope that you will love it!
