This year, one of my goals is to keep a daily journal. I used to do it, but I haven't been so good lately. I was inspired by this picture from pinterest:
Isn't it cute? It is from Design*Sponge. I love how simple it is. I didn't have any vintage postcards, though. But I did have this polka dot embosser (is that what these are even called?) from years ago. I embossed 11 3 1/2" x 3" cards. They aren't bright and colorful, but it still gives the dividers a little something.
For the cards, I just cut 3x5 cards in half and wrote the date at the top. I even remembered to put in February 29th.
My goal is to write something - probably just a simple phrase, every day. With the changes we are expecting this year, I'm pretty excited to do this.
I made one of these for my closest friends for Christmas this year. The berry baskets were from Anthropologie and I added a little more color for my friends. I, however, didn't know where I wanted to put this so I kept mine pretty neutral! Shocking!
You know it is a fun gift when you have to make one for yourself!
