So beautiful, I journal in this way often too...thank you for sharing!

What a wonderful gift! Your collage work is layers of layers to pull from, see within, without...over and under...one layer at a time..each time I look at one of your pieces I walk away with something new...The way you do this all seeming so effortlessly just makes me so happy just being able to witness it! Thank you Pilar for sharing your wonderful creations with all of us!

This is really beautiful. I didn't even notice the pop culture reference at first glance.

By the way, I've received your postcard. Thank you. It's on my inspiration board, in a place of honor.

I love how you describe your journalling process...it sounds like mine, only I never articulated it! I love that it's an eclectic mix...and a friend with an "ear" when we need it.

The collage you made for your friend is very rich, in thought, colors and design. I love the hands, the dove and the encouraging words; and the picture of the guy is fits perfectly. (Is that a picture of your friend? Just curious.)

This is a very loving and thoughtful thing to do..


What a warm hearted PAGE !! And you'r right I think . People are strong and able to survive life through being positive!


Oh this is a very thoughtful and heartfelt page you did. Love it. ;-) A great memory, love the description of how you are working in your journal. ;-)


Gosh, Pilar,
This quote is so timely for me. With a son in rehab, I am always looking for inspirational quotes to incorporate in the things I send him that aren't too hokey or saccharine. This quote is perfect and I will use it soon! Thanks.


This pages has so much meaning! I like the way you accentuate positive strength... the hands and the beautiful bird also add wonderful symbolism. This is really beautiful!

Such an honest expression! Our journals do become treasure chests that hold memories of all the steps along the way. Another way you're creating the beauty that life can be.

My journaling style is the same way as yours. I don't know what i would do without it!

Beautiful sentiments...just lovely and hearfelt.


Sweet work. AND I'm often so impressed with people who can do multi-layered work like this. It's really quite delicious.


I always look forward to seeing what you'll do next, and I am never disappointed! This is lovely work, and the sentiment means so much to me right now. Thank you!

I too love the symbolism and strong message in this. Your friends are very lucky to have such a thoughtful and considerate friend. And I think Bear would be chuffed too!
