Gratitudes and celebration Journal - New beginnings

Add caption
After a year of writing on a weekly basis those things that I am grateful for I thought I would start creating a gratitude's journal.  It is easier to look back at the months and see those things that I was grateful for alongside a piece of creativity.  We don't have to have a reason to create as it is a form of expression, so all the more reason to do something.  I will create a weekly page and show you the before and after and write something that I am grateful for and something that I am celebrating.  I am showing up on these pages for myself, as a reminder to how precious my life is, and as a reminder that 'All things are possible', we just have to step out each and every day!

I have made the journal from fabric and enclosed a selection of cards all different sizes as signatures, they are quite thick card so will take watercolours and any other mediums.

Here is some of the detail from the journal.  I have used cowrie shells, beads and seed beads and attached them to the different types of material used for the journal.
 It is a chunky journal and I have used a ranged of different types of material and embellishments including buttons and ribbons.

I hope you will join me each Friday and share what you are doing, comment, link your posts and just have fun.

  1. What a fabulous idea! I see in your journal cover a journey, with bumps along the road, smooth stretches also, and magic encounters. I am going forth with a creative undertaking myself, and will make a journal as well. Sending more creative thoughts your way.
