It's been a while since I have made any mini album. I am loving this piece of Grey-Orange triangle patterned paper from the new Elle's Studio Sycamore collection. So I decided to use it to make the cover for my Thankful Journal. I believe everyday we should be focusing on happy moment and there are little things that we are thankful for.
I keep this mini album fairly simple. I cut papers into various sizes and fold them into half, bind them with pamphlet stitching. I then added some of the recent photos that I really love and some journalling tags. I leave the journaling spots blank and will fill up with my journalling before my bedtime.
The camera die-cut in cork sheet is just too cute. There are pages that have no photos at all so I could just journal to my heart.
This is such a precious photo of my toddler - I took this photo of him during his first day to pre-Montessori. I absolutely adore the way he sat there and observe his classmates during snack time.
Another photo of us went to Kinokuniya - a Japanese bookstore near our home. I love his outfit of the day and also he looked so tiny in between the book shelves.
I have a section of my daily planner to jot down notes that I am thankful for - and will transfer to the mini album when I have time to journal. Do you make any thankful album this year? I am thinking to make more thankful journal because I really want to remember and cherish every little moment. Time simply passed by too fast daily and we tend to forget about the little moments / things that we should cherish in our heart.
