#thankfulthursday

Happy last day of October, Happy Halloween and happy it's almost Friday.

Welcome to...

#thankfulthursday

While reading through the entries in my Blog Reader yesterday, I came across a post about orphaned photos. Why yes, I do have a stack of those. And the lovely idea of giving those photos a home gave me an idea.

Since my photos were all different sizes, I decided to resize a printable from long ago to a landscape 4x6 journaling card to make a thankful mini album.

It works in so perfectly with my #thankfulthursday project, so I may just begin to print off the photos I share for #thankfulthursday each week on Instagram and keep them all in one place. And that's why I used a book binder ring instead of the Bind-It-All, which is always my go-to binding method for mini albums, I'll be able to add to and make this mini book as chunky and full of memories as I care to.

After gathering my pile of orphaned photos, I just slathered the journaling card with my faithful glue stick, added the photo of Oma and the kids, journaled, punched a hole and added the red binder ring


I made layouts for each of the kids with this very same photo, but for some reason I have about 5 more of these photos printed. Oh, the memories. I can almost cry just looking at the photo. Must be my middle-aged, can't have any more babies hormones. Again.


The reason for the pop up journaling on the word privilege is because I had a handwriting snafu and had to cover it up, but it's a happy mistake and makes so much sense now.

I'll be adding my #thankfulthursday photo to Instagram, tag me @monikawright_iloveitall if you add a photo so that I can see what you're thankful for on this Thursday.

In the meantime, download your journaling cards and begin documenting your thankful thoughts.

  2. Love, love, love this, Monika!! I'll be printing mine out and making a mini along with you! (You should have a link up at the end of the month for people to share!) :) I think this is a great addition to your gratitude journals -- when re-reading mine, it's good to see so many blessings . . . but a photo, a photo brings back the feelings, the smells, the moment. KWIM? Thanks for your generous heart, sweet friend! :)

    1. Yes, exactly! You just get me Kate. You do. That's why I loved doing 52Photos with Lisa. The photo and then the story...it just works. I will look into doing a link up, that's a great idea!
