Video: Gratitude Journal

I made my first flip-through video today and posted it on youtube!  Hooray, progress!  Here is my Gratitude Journal for 2017 – taa daaaaa!  Someday I’ll figure out how to embed it, but for today, just making it and posting it was enough!

This project was a fun one, but I will admit that I struggled with it at first.  The prompts I began with came from The Reset Girl and came out in October, which chafed me a bit since I usually do a “30 Days of Thankfulness” challenge in November to mark the Thanksgiving holiday.  To get around this mental road block, I spent October preparing the traveler’s notebook, coloring and decorating the pages in advance so I could spend November doing the actual gratitude journaling.  I found some very cool Gratitude Lists from Allison Kimball’s website and printed those out 4 to a page so they would fit in a traveler’s notebook insert comfortably.  For the backgrounds and embellishments, I used the Vintage Blessings collection from Simple Stories and various washi tapes I picked up this season.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!  It ain’t perfect, but if it was, it wouldn’t be mine. 🙂
