About Stone Circle Inspirations
Stone Circle offers a collection unique hand-made journals created by Anne Courtney, and a selection of mindful gift books. They make a special gift – a joy to give and to receive.
The Power of Words
I have always kept a journal and I find that the act of writing helps me stay grounded and gives me an invaluable perspective on the tapestry of life. I always take time to find a special book in which to chart the important changes and milestones of life.
This inspired me to create a collection of hand bound journals, covered in stunning hand painted silk or art fabric, perfect to store your thoughts and record life’s journey.
The Power of Writing
I have always kept a journal and I find that making notes is a powerful way to capture the moment . Keeping a journal helps me stay grounded and is a special place to note milestones and inspirations. I like to find a special book for my writing which prompted me to create a personal collection of handcrafted journals and notebooks.
Journals - Handcrafted with Love
I have always treasured craftsmanship and place great value on the “mark of the hand” which makes objects unique in today’s disposable culture. As a silk painter I love the texture and luminous colour on silk and the feel of natural fabrics. All my journals are hand crafted and make a perfect gift.
Creating this collection has been a labour of love and I hope that they will be a joy for you to use as a Gratitude, Dream or Personal Journal, or simply a notebook to jot down ideas.
The stone circle is a metaphor for the circle of life,
of friendship, of wholeness, and the cyclical energy
of the universe in which we play our part.
Be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars

Living in Ireland, I am inspired by the spiritual wisdom of the Celtic world and the rich legacy of writers. As a choreographer, I’ve worked for many years in Asia where I discovered the riches of Zen meditation, studied silk painting, and learned Tai Chi with Chinese masters.
