-That's a Hellen Keller quote on one of our stamp sets!
I meant to share this journal a while ago and just found the pictures. I realized I must not have shared it.
I made this journal back in August to help me keep track of some pretty austentacious goals. :) It's both for work (Stampin' Up!) goals, family goals, etc... I am keeping charts, notes, ideas, etc... in it.
The quote works perfectly for what this is and I am inspired by it every time I open it. Mission accomplished!
Here's a peek at the inside cover:
I put the envelope in so that I could keep those little post-it notes and such that I'm always writing in the same place as the rest of the related stuff. BTW- decorating envelopes is a great way to use scraps. :)
It's prbably obvious, but I made it out of those composition books that are on sale at the beginning of the school year. This type of thing would be a great starter project for you when thinking about your new goals, or needing to focus or organize, or even to keep track of progress on a New Year's Resolution. Of course, it works well as a plain ol' regular journal too. It would also be a great gift!
I used the Daring Adventure Stamp set, Morning Mocha Specialty paper (love the texture of these papers!), the nuetrals buttons, black taffeta ribbon, linen thread, and crumb cake envelopes.
You can order all the supplies you need for this from my Stampin' Up! website (except for the composition book).
And don't forget I also fill wish lists you might want to give your husband or friends!
