“30 Days of Thanksgiving” is going to start on October 27 this year. Are you ready? Do you have your Thanksgiving journal? If you’re new you may be thinking, “What is a Thanksgiving journal?” It’s just any blank book that you write in every day what you’re thankful for. I’ve used spiral notebooks, composition notebooks, & last year I got really artistic with mine. (I’ll share photos later.) The journals in the photo above are mini spiral & composition notebooks that I bought at back to school sales. I think they were 4/$1.00! Here’s what they looked like when I bought them:
I asked last year to see samples & received photos of some very original journals. But they don’t have to be creative (for those of you who think you’re not creative). I just covered them with text from an old book that was falling apart & stuck a copy of an old postcard on the front. I bought a CD on Ebay of 100s of vintage holiday postcards! But you could use any photo you like, or decorate it yourself. The cover is not really what’s important — it’s what you write inside. I have numbered pages 1-30 in my journal & plan on making a list of things I’m thankful for every day. Mine is a little larger than these so I’ll have room for Scriptures & photos, too. Mine is a Paperchase journal with a plain brown cover & black pages. So this year I can write with my gold, silver, & white gel pens.
I’ll be sharing photos of my journal as I add things to it. Meanwhile, if you’d like one of the mini journals ask me the next time you see me. I plan on carrying some around with me in my purse – the ones I decorated & some plain ones, too, if you’d like to decorate your own. Leave me a comment if you are going to participate in “30 Days of Thanksgiving” this year.
