Warm heart, cold feet........

Baby, it is COLD outside......atleast for my part of the world.  The Pacific Northwest is having a rare cold spell, no snow, just low temps into the teens.  On the up side, the sun is shining brightly!

I'm still working on my "gratitude" book.  I was making it for a Christmas gift......it is getting harder and harder to part with it.  We'll see what happens when the time comes.

I'll show you a couple pages......


 
 
I guess this page is self explanatory.....get up, put your shoes on and "start each day with a grateful heart"!  I see the need to squeeze an "e" into grateful!  Darn, just noticed that.  It's O.K., I'll fix it.
 
On the opposing page, I'm going to suggest the recipient write, under the flap, about someone who has had a positive influence on them. 
 
 
Aren't we all grateful for desserts?  I know I am.......

Cold in the central part of the continent, Jan. I'm grateful for friends with warm hearts! ;)

What a wonderful idea! I think I need someone to do some prompts in a journal for me. Maybe I'd follow through... Or not. It's beautiful none the less!!!

This is AWESOME. I'm glad you shared this, because I'm working on similar things, but mine are taking forever.

BTW, I'm FREEZING right now. Talk about cold feet. I even have a space heater going full blast and it's still only 60 degrees F in here. BRR.

I hope you share your finished journal. It looks like someone is going to be very happy to receive it.

I can see why your gratitude book is going to be hard to part with, it is beautiful. I'm sure you can squeeze that spare E in there artistically, if anyone can do it, it would be you! We're cold here, too, but this is normal for us. Have a wonderful weekend!

What a wonderful little journal! That missing E might just be an opportunity for more art.
