I just received the digital proofs from the printer for my brand new offering — Praying With the Elements — the first in a quarterly series of mini-journals/zines celebrating the spiritual life using words and images. Grounded in Christian tradition, although I hope it is spacious enough so others will find wisdom there as well. I had a delightful time putting this together and I hope you will consider ordering a copy and support my work as writer and artist! If you enjoy this blog, I think you'll love Praying With the Elements. I am taking orders now, the copies should be in my hands in just a few days.
Some Details: 48 full-color pages, 6 by 6 inch square (fits easily in your journal or bag). Filled with photos, stamp images, Celtic design, collage images, and written reflections, all by Christine. One section devoted to each of the four elements (earth, wind, fire, water), with writing, images, and suggestions for prayer.
Here are just a few of the pages I printed in draft mode (the color will be much sharper in the printed copies):
Unfortunately I have been having technical difficulties with my usual Offerings page after I tried to make some modifications for easier shopping, so I have copied the old page here.
If you'd like to order please email me and I will send you a Paypal invoice so you can pay by credit card. If you'd prefer to pay by check, let me know, and I will send you the mailing address.

I would be so grateful if you'd help me spread the word. Let me know if you link to me and I'll return the favor! In fact, tell your readers to mention where they saw Praying With the Elements, and for every 5 copies you help me to sell, I will send you a free copy.
