Gratitude Journal 2013 part 1


I wanted to make a gratitude journal this year. I have done a few through the years and even though we don´t celebrate Thanksgiving, I think November is a perfect month to set aside and really focus on the things we are grateful for. 
And just when I was thinking of how I wanted to put it together Shanna Noel posted on her Instagram that she had something sweet up her sleave that would include free printables and a lovely take on gratitude and how we can document it. Please go to her blog and see more!




I had pinned a free printable months ago.
These are meant to be used as table numbers for a wedding, but as they printed a perfect 3 cards next to eachother, I decided we will use this as a family gratitude journal. We are three and this way we can all write down our thankfuls each day of the month and have them all next to eachother!


So I cut the sheets to size and just made a simple brad binding.


Then I simply decorated my cover with Shannas printables. I love the colors! And I can´t wait to start filling this out come November! 


Ps. Here is how I documented my gratitude in 2011.
And in 2010

Memory keeping | Autumn TN 02

If you´d like to see my first few pages in my Autumn mini, just click here

I am still working away in my Autumn travelers notebook. I have enjoyed to add bits and pieces and stories about some of my favorite things about fall. I will go on in November and then start my annual Christmas mini at the start of December. 


Quotes are one of my favorite things to include in my memory keeping projects, so it is no suprise that I have quite a few in here. 



I will use most of the remaining pages for my 30 day gratitude project that I do every year with the grand finale of Thankgiving at the end of the month. 
I have a question, if you are one who makes traveler notebooks, how do you store them when they are done?


Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 6 past favorites

Three years ago, when my fiancé and me celebrated our first December together, I started a December minibook. It´s a 6x8 binder from Simple Stories with pocket pages. I decided that I´ll have three years worth of December memories in this mini. So this year marks the last one being documented in this book. I am not doing anything daily (as in the December Daily project that Ali Edwards do) and since I do Project Life every week this album is all about our December traditions and sometimes I do have double recordings, but for me it is all ok. What I have felt special about working in my December mini is that I go all in with glitter, cheesy wordings etc. It´s fun! I fitted 3 years of Decembers in one album and this year I am getting a new album, but will still do the same thing.

Today I thought I´d share a few favorite pages and elements from the past 3 years before I start the new album.


1. I really like that I have included the things I have been inspired by every year. I take a screen…

Kellie Stamps CT 2016 | November

I'm so happy about the re-release of two alpha sets this month from Kellie Stamps! Slim Jim is a set I use all the time for all kinds of projects. 

Here is a new page I did for the re-release.

I've been so inspired by fellow team member Diane and her awesome traveller notebooks lately. She often creates backgrounds using her alpha stamps, so I lifted her and made this background for my layout. I very rarely use any other color than black to stamp with, but after using this blue/teal Ink I may have to start. 

Since my love is worse in his MS his wheelchair is a must. We are that couple that hold hands a lot and that is something I miss. But when the road is a tiny bit downhill we totally hold & roll :)
