Dawn Sokol Doodle Circle Blog Hop

My friend Dawn Sokol is at it again, another amazing book, this time one friends can share!!!


Dawn and I at our ‘annual’ lunch in Phoenix:-)

The Doodle Circle: A Fill-In Journal for BFFs to Share


As I read through this book one thought kept coming back to me time and time again, if only this book had been around when I was in high school! My friends and I doodled our hearts out, and passing around this cool book would have been so much fun!!. I can totally see BFF’s sharing these books and their deep dark secrets, dreams and wishes with each other.

It’s the perfect size to fit into a purse or backpack and ready to journal/doodle in with partially decorated pages with just the right amount of color and design to inspire more creativity. With sections covering Supplies, My Circle Sisters, All About Me, Your Spot in the Circle, and The Whole Circle, it covers many areas of friendship and all those good and sometimes not so good things that good friends weather together. Definitely a book to love and keep and look back on to reflect. Can you imagine bringing a filled copy to a high school reunion to look back over with your friends?

With Christmas coming up this book would make the perfect gift for any  young girl.

And now for the really cool part…I’m giving away a signed copy on my blog!!! All you have to do is leave a comment and I’ll draw a winner tomorrow!!

These are doodles my friends and I did way back in high school, think of how much fun it would be to have them in a shared book to keep forever!!

  1. I am new to your blog and am enjoying it … I signed up to free myself to write on the pages of the journals and books I make … thanks for all the inspiration…jeannie

  2. Thank you for this opportunity!! I think this book would be a perfect bonding experience for me and my baby sister to share! I only get to see her a couple times a year and I am always looking for things to do with her that she would enjoy. (She’s 12 and I’m 24 so we have quite an age gap)

  3. This is so fun. We just did National night out,wouldn’t this be fun to bring everyone together and look back at the next event. Great idea.

  4. What a fun idea for a doodle book! I’d love to win this book. Thanks for the opportunity. Have a happy day :). – Heidi

  6. Doodling is such a therapeutic exercise…and sometimes you doodle a gem, straight from your inner psyche. I really love this book.

  7. What a wonderful idea! I know I would’ve loved to have one of these as a teen. I have two teen girls of my own now & they are beautiful budding artists -this would be a geat gift for them. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  8. it’s not christmas yet and there are already many chances for a give away present.i would love to win this book for my daughter and lure her deeper in the enchanting world of doodling and journaling.

  10. I love what you are doing! What a great way to connect with friends! I would love to win a copy and start sharing it with my friends!

  11. So neat you saved your doodling friends work. Now there’s a cool place for others to do likewise. I need to win at least 5 copies to share with family and friends located all over! Lol

  12. Wow! Those pages from so long ago are wonderful! I had a friend in high school that I used to exchange crazy notes with. I wish I had those notes still. Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. I LOVE it! I found some of my doodles from high school recently. I had a high school teacher that had us journal every day – it didn’t matter if it was writing, drawing or doodles. It was all good. Looking back, I realize he was progressive. I still remember Dr. Amberg. What a great man!

  14. Journal circle, what a neet idea. I’m going to start one with my grandchildren. They’ve been journaling with me for as long as they could hold a pencil…maybe longer (thinking about those hand-prints and finger paints.)

  15. I LOVE that you still have doodles from high school friends! That’s awesome, and will make this new book from Dawn a special treasure in years to come. Please throw my name in the hat to win a copy! Thanks, Pam. x
