Cultivating a Grateful Heart with a Gratitude Journal

I've got a little app on my iPod touch that has been fun to record the things I'm grateful for each night.... but as much as I love technology (heh good ol' Napoleon Dynamite), sometimes a girl just wants something that is more concrete.

I made this simple book so that I had a more permanent place to keep my grateful thoughts in.
It's really simply made out of paper kraft bags and patterned papers & embellishments from several NoelMignon kits (especially Mary Ellen &Jump and Jive).
I also threw in some papers from a little Jenni Bowlin Studios notebook I've had for a long time.
And masking tape. Of course, masking tape. :)




I hope to fill it up very quickly with gratefulness...

Definitely pinning this little gem!

Not only would it be neat to see this completed, but to know the actual measurements?

TFS your talents!
