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!
How cool is that?
