Wednesday extra - 3rd November 2010

For all our US followers, it's the month for Thanksgiving and here at the Studio we are certainly giving thanks to Tessa for an amazing Wednesday extra project :-)
Tessa has designed a Gratitude Journal.  Here is Tessa's article:

Here in the US we celebrate Thanksgiving every November.  I love sitting down with family for a big dinner, the wonderful food, and taking the day to remember my blessings.  However, this year I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving all month long with a Gratitude Journal.  Each day in November I will add a note to my journal that completes this sentence: I'm grateful for...

I made a simple mini album from three sheets of chipboard and two pieces of cardboard, enough to make a two-page spread for each week of the month.

Several pages have plenty of room for journaling:

The other pages have a journaling spot and embellishment:

If you'd like to join me in recording your thoughts of gratitude this month, it's not too late!  You could whip up an album like mine, devote a blank notebook to the cause, or even join me on your favorite online social site.  Through my blog, Facebook, and Twitter I am challenging myself and others to daily and publicly express gratitude all November long.

You can find more details about my challenge here, including a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper.  And if you do give a Gratitude Journal a go, I'd love to see it.  Leave a link in the comments below and I'll be sure to stop by and take a look.


  1. What a gorgeous little album ... I love the idea of a double page per week ... and may have to nab that idea for my December album as I won't have time for a daily page this year.
    What am I grateful for today?
    The Studio/Tessa for sharing!
    Thank you SO much xxx
