In addition to cooking low-sugar recipes, I am in my designing journals era. This 6×9 inch daisy journal is one of my favorites. The positive affirmation, I am pretty, is on the front cover with the the wild daisies photo I took. The back cover is dark green. The inside has 200 blank lined pages to write down all your important thoughts. To purchase, go to Amazon.com and search for Julia Parent or I am Pretty Daisy Journal.
