Update on #MyThankful30 Project

Several weeks ago I shared how I turned an old book into the beginning of a mini album to hold a gratitude project I'd be working on in November.  Since the month is almost over, I thought I'd let you know how my album is coming together.

I originally intended to use a few prompts I found on Pinterest to write my daily entries.  I started out that way but within a few days I was writing about something particular I was grateful for each day.  I did go back to the prompts once or twice but for the most part my daily entries were generated from something that occurred to me each day.

This is a photo-less project.  I wanted to add a little more journaling than I had in the past and so I decided to fill the space the photos would have taken with words instead.

With December Daily looming on the horizon, I feel like this project could have easily gotten a little overshadowed.  Eliminating the extra steps of taking, editing and printing photos really helped me stick with it.  I enjoy writing and while I did double-up on the prompts a couple of times, it was generally very easy to get an entry done each day.

I'm happy to have a little collection of these gratitude mini albums from the past few years and hope that I'll be adding another one next year.  Thank you for stopping by!

  1. This project looks like so much fun. I like all the "bits and pieces" especially. I always think the add-ons add so much personality to a scrapbook. You are so creative--I look forward to seeing your Dec Daily project. Thanks for sharing
