give thanks 2013

Last year I kept a gratitude journal for the two week leading up to Thanksgiving.  You can read more about it HERE. This year I decided to I'm going to write things I'm thankful for each week on Thursday leading up to Thanksgiving day.

I created a smaller journal this year (4x6) and made a two page spread for each of the four weeks before Thanksgiving.  I left space for a photo or photo collage on the left side, and some journaling on the right side.  I also left an envelope at the end with a blank 4x6 journaling card so I can record my thoughts/experiences/perspective at the end of this project.

I used the new Harvest collection from We R Memory Keepers and made a Cinch book with their book board and binding wires.  I used the Envelope Punch Board to make the envelope at the end of the journal, and I used my Evolution and Leaf Punches Die to add some accents.  Here are some photos of my journal:








And you can CLICK HERE to watch a video on the We R blog with some tips on how I created this journal.

I'll be sharing my journal as I fill it out each Friday this month, so be sure to check back.  I'd love for you to create your own journal and follow along if you feel like this is a project for you.  Link me up in the comments so I can see your own journals.  See you Friday!
