The Joy Journal showcases fifty prompts for creative and crafty activities to help encourage a sense of joy and mindfulness.

The activities are imaginative, engaging and most importantly, easy to do. Using store-cupboard ingredients and easily foraged supplies, this book makes it simple to unlock your creative potential and feel inspired by the freedom of play from childhood. You don't have to be a crafting master to take part, either – author Laura Brand gently guides you through the steps, helps get your creative juices flowing and stirs your imagination.

However busy you are, Laura invites you to carve out 'me time' to try something new – whether that's decorating a simple Pressed Flower Candle, mixing up a batch of Whipped Body Butter, or making Colourful Tassles to adorn a gift.

This beautifully illustrated handbook will show you how to experiment, explore and open your eyes to the beauty and artistic potential of ordinary things. From Calming Origami Hearts and Painted Mandala Pebbles to Pounded Petal Prints, you'll never be short of a craft idea to keep your hands occupied and your mind calm.

This book is a chance to slow down and find stillness. Self-care in the most beautiful, creative ways.
