THE GRATITUDE PROJECT | A DIY MINIBOOK/JOURNAL DOCUMENTING THANKFULNESS IN NOVEMBER (PART III)

Hi friends!  It's December!

You know what that means... time for documenting December and all the Christmas festivities!  

But first... I wanted to share the last few pages of my Gratitude Project. I finished these up on a quiet afternoon in my office after coming home from work with a nasty cold.  There's nothing I hate more than feeling crappy during this beautiful time of year. But, I was able to make the best of it as I turned on some Christmas tunes, sipped hot tea and worked away.  

I'm so thankful I finished this project. It was a very fun and very sweet project. I really enjoyed creating so many pages digitally and then printing and embellishing them. I will definitely be using this format again. Here, you can see Part I and Part II of this project.

... And now it is time for December! I'll be back later today with a little peak into my plans and thoughts for documenting my Christmas. 

 

LET THE PARTY BEGIN! | Celebrating Birthday Month - Giveaways, Thankful 30, and More Fun!

Ahhhh, Friday! I just love Fridays, don't you?

The weekend is so close now, I can feel it and that means I can kick back, relax, and let the birthday shenanigans BEGIN!

That's right, November is my birth month and I'm celebrating ALL MONTH LONG!

Want to party with me?  I have some great ways you can join in the festivities!

Want a chance to win a free digital set of cork embellishments from my Shoppe? Enter now through 11.20.15 for a chance to win each week.  Three winners will be announced each Friday on Instagram and will be allowed the opportunity to choose their own prize set!

 

2. Document a Daily Gratitude!

This is my first year documenting a daily gratitude and it has already been so rewarding!  After reading my friend Julie's blog post about 5 Ways to Document Gratitude, I decided to document my own daily thanksgiving using the Apple Pages app on my iPhone.  This way, I can create on the fly and don't have an excuse for not being able to "keep up with the project".  I encourage you to play along; find a way that works best for you and stick to it!  You can find a fantastic list of prompts to help you get started over on my friend Elise's blog!

3. Spend 30 Minutes a Day doing something you love!

My dear Instagram pals, Jessica of Color Cast Designs and Kellie of Give a Girl a Blog and Kellie Stamps have set a month challenge before us called #30minutesfor30days.  I'm already in love with it.  They've prompted us to spend 30 minutes a day doing something we love.  For me, that has been reading.  I've started a novel a few days ago and I'm already nearly through with it! Learn more on Kellie's blog here.

Thank you for celebrating my birthday month with me!
