This is the month of being grateful. Well every month we should be grateful, but this month it’s emphasized. Every where you look on Social Media you are finding daily posts of what you are grateful for. I love seeing them and reading them all, especially when it helps me remember something I am grateful for. I decided to do a grattitude journal a little bit different this year. I wanted to focus on the one thing in my life I am most grateful for. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used Carta Bella’s Work Hard Play Hard to make a gratitude journal dedicated to my husband….. So today’s theme is:
What are you most grateful for? The hubby and I have been together for 23 years, married almost 21. We have been through it all and from time to time wondered if we would ever make it. I am so grateful we are still here, still together and still in love. Here’s what I created for my husband:
I created a tag holding mini album out of two sheets of 12×12 paper, trimmed it down to 8×12, scored across the bottom 2 inches up and then vertically every 4 inches. When you fold it like an accordion, it turns into a pocket mini album.
Here are some images of the inside and some of the tags I added.
This collection focuses on the men in our lives, mostly about the sporty things our men love. I chose bits and pieces out of the collection that reminded me of Theo and how I feel about him. Along with these bits and little notes I added, I hope he loves this as much as I do.
Now go make something that focuses on something you are grateful.
