Gratitude Journal - 1000 Gifts

I've mentioned Ann Voskamp and her book, One Thousand Gifts a few times here. It's changing the way I view life. And so I've decided to take on the challenge of recording one thousand gifts that I have received from God.

To that end, I went in search of a journal to document my list. We had no appropriate one in the house (I wanted it to be wire-bound so the cover could flip back on itself) -- but DH found one for me for 50% off at Chapters-Indigo. According to the packaging, it was decorated with "vintage wallpaper." That's cool!

I liked it well enough as it was, but I wanted to personalize it -- with some ribbon and texture -- you know ;) So, using my stash of fabric and upholstery scraps, as well as some embellishments and rub-ons that we had on hand, I created this:

Since it is a gratitude journal, I figured "Thank yous" were appropriate :)

And of course it needed a bit of bling:

I can't wait to get started using it!

The cool, unplanned thing is that it goes nicely with my tote and other journal!

How cool is that?

  3. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
    and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
