My Journey

A Timeless Keepsake (One Room at a Time Series)

A Timeless Keepsake by Author: Charisse Marei  has been Reviewed by Jeanette Perkins aka Beeba on Grand Magazine.

A Timeless Keepsake was designed to complement the series One Room at a Time. Charisse Marei created a timeless journal to keepsake precious memories, the present, and what has yet to come. I have been journaling for many years. It is therapeutic and fun to look back on from time to time. I highly recommend it.

For those new to this process, Charisse includes a section on preparing to journal. There are also several other visual aids to inspire and enlighten. Throughout the journal, there are encouraging phrases to prompt your entries. All are centered around the journal’s theme:

Release           Renew             Revitalize

A Timeless Keepsake packaging

The beautiful packaging.

A Timeless Keepsake arrives beautifully packaged to help awaken your internal creativity. This would make a wonderful gift for a new mother, grandmother or dear friend.

“You may laugh, you may cry.
You may connect the dots to unfold a fuzzy truth.
You may choose to open the journal to share memories
or hold them secretly close to your heart.”

I'm Charisse Marei

Surface pattern design artist, author, and eco-conscious interior designer.

This story began decades ago (including the interior design of corporate jets) and took off from there.
