If you’ve been on social media much the last few days you may have noticed 30 days of thanks or 30 days of gratitude. These, like other monthly photo challenges are generally set up so that you have an assigned topic to photograph and write a few sentences about each day. I love the idea of spending the month being thankful, however I didn’t feel the need to fill up my Instagram feed with the posts, and I wanted something that I can go back and look over throughout the year. I realized that the 4×4 mini photo albums made by Project Life, We R Memory Keepers, and others would be perfect for this. I could add all my photos as well as journaling cards and have a nice compact album as a keepsake. I will probably post some of the images on Instagram, and others I will keep just for myself. I will update here on the blog as I progress. Because I am making the album instead of daily posts I am not so concerned with it being a daily activity, but I at least want to sit down weekly and spend some time in thought about my gratitude.
This is the Heidi Swapp for Project Life 4×4 album. I ran across it on clearance at Michaels.
I went ahead and made some 4×4 cards to use in my album to denote the days/pages. I have shared the intro card and days 1-7 here. I will update this post with days 8-30 in a few days. You are welcome to use these cards if you’d like.
