On my list of things to do today is to pull up the last tomato plant. Yes, it's still growing & still has some tomatoes on it but it's really slowing down & I'd like to get the garden cleaned up before Thanksgiving.Here's an example of one of Lynda's gratitude booklets. See how simple it could be? She also made a 2010 gratitude journal and even has a free download for you on her blog.
Claudia has photos of her beautiful Thanksgiving art journal over on her blog. Here's a close up of one page.
OK, now for my Thanksgiving journal. I showed you this page already. This is actually from my regular Bible study journal. I don't even usually make the pages this fancy. Maybe a few little doodles every now & then. But I love the brown paper pages. I'm doing most of my writing in this book. But I wanted a journal to add more photos & "stuff" to.
So I made this little one. But immediately realized that it was too small. I never even wrote in it. Thought about adding it to my Etsy shop but thought it was too close to Thanksgiving. I made add it next year if I haven't used it by then.
But I found a really neat item from another Etsy seller. She sells "binder mechanisms". Those are the metal parts found inside a 3-ring binder. They allow you to turn any book cover into a notebook. I had this old book that the library was going to throw away. I loved the cover but didn't know what I would do with it. Turns out it was exactly the right size for the binder mechanism.
I've added a few pages already and have a few more pages in the works. These are all completely random. Just whatever I feel like making at the time. And I even added Jo's little post it notes!
Watch out... cuteness!!!
Looks like the Etsy seller I bought the binder mechanisms from is out of them. But here's her blog so you can see her examples.
