I don't know if anyone else feels this same way, but I feel like October flew by in a blink of an eye! I seriously can't believe that November starts this week which means Thanksgiving is not far away!
As we all know with Thanksgiving brings lots of thoughts of being Thankful! This upcoming month I want to do a Family Gratitude Journal. Where we all take a minute each day and write down a few things that we are thankful for. I really want to get my 4 year old daughter involved in this as well so she can see that there are many things in life that we sometimes take for granted that we need to be grateful for.
Here is what I did to make our Family Gratitude Journal:
A few weeks ago I bought a composition notebook at Walmart for .50 cents! It was on clearance after all the school items were out.
Of course, I had to decorate it and make it all cute! So I got some scrapbook paper and measured it from the black strip on the binding to the edge of the book. I cut it out and used a glue stick to glue it on to the book.
Then I took an exacto knife and cut the paper around the corners of the notebook since they are rounded. I used the back of my Cricut Mat to cut on.
Next I added some embellishments to the front of the notebook.
I made a Paper Pinwheel Flower that you can see HERE how to make. I also added gems to the center of the flower.
I typed up on the computer and printed out the Gratitude Journal sign.
I hot glued or used a glue stick to put everything on it.
I love how it turned out and can't wait to get started writing in our Family Journal!
