this morning i carved out some time to put together my gratitude documented DIY booklet that i work through with my devotional content each month.  here's a peek at my process for this quick, fun craft....

soooo many upcoming places to journal & praise & give thanks! 

this month i was rather intentional with how many little "extras" went into the weekly sections so that i could document thanks each day as well as coordinate a page in my bible.

as always, i started my DIY booklet out with a little spot for prayer -- it's important for me to bring my creativity & time over to God each month so i don't lose my focus on what the true meaning of my craft time is.

i can't wait to get started november 1st.... just a few more sleeps! hah ;)

i hope you'll be joining in for gratitude documented this year.  whether you simply download the free prompts [!!!] or go all in with all the pretty goodies you've saved your pennies for, this season of thanks will bless your socks off, friend!


  1. Instead of buying these handy little baggies to keep your lingerie drawer sweetly scented, get a breathable bag (or make one from linen, lace, or a tight mesh, like pantyhose), fill it with petals, and tie it with a pretty ribbon. Voila! Instant potpourri. And you can always make a fancier version for gifts.TeddyWay
