Then I remembered one I had not posted. And truthfully, it would be part of a 2007 collection, but who's really counting?
I made gratitude journals for my sister and for my dear friend Cory for Christmas. I know I stole the idea from someone, but I do not feel like finding it right now. I believe Cathy and Ali posted it, but that it may have orginally been Emily Falconbridge's idea.
My journals involved a 6 x 6 album made from 52 pieces of paper, one for each week of the year. I even tried (as my sister noted on Valentine's Day) to match seasonal paper to the correct week. The crazy part was that I wrote a quote on each page and stamped the numbers 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 on each page. I will probably not do that part if I ever do that again. Here's a look at the inside...the page on the left was actually a transparency:
So now, they can each write down 7 things they are thankful for each week. The other cool thing is I used Hambly clear acrylic sheets for the cover and the back. The title is on the clear acrylic with stickers:
I am eager to see how they turn out.
