Earlier this week I was visiting design*sponge when I found this idea:
I L.O.V.E. this idea!
The post on this great idea and directions to make one can be found here.
This type of journaling appeals to me -- and my phobia of writing in a pretty book, with blank pages. It only took me a day to decide to give this easy-peasy idea a try.
My berry baskets are all stained with berry juice and not this pretty, so opted to use something I had on hand
This old oak recipe box works for me
I had plenty of index cards laying around from all those speeches and reports our kids did in high school.
For now I've clipped a photo to the month divider card sometime this week I'll use double-sided tape to attach the photo to the index card.
I have plenty of printed photos -- especially of flowers and landscapes this is a perfect way for me to enjoy them throughout the year.
the tabs are just sticky tabs that were taking up space in my desk -- they can be easily removed.
Shocking as it may be, I managed to remember something from almost every day in January so I could start writing today. That's the fun part!
It will be interesting to see what I did each year -- and maybe even what I ate, or what the temperature high was for the day -- or how much I spent on bread and milk.
But until then....I plan to keep this box either by my bedside -- to write at the end of the day...or at my desk where I will see it every day.
