Book of Blessings


Something that I have been working on with my children is to always be thankful of the blessings we have in our lives. And even though it may seem like nothing is going right and it may seem as though life is just so tough there are always blessings to be found. And we've been talking about how important it is to take the time each day to thank God for each of these blessings. Sooooo, our little Book of Blessings was born. I made these today so that me and my kids can take time out every morning to write a few things that we are thankful for in our lives as a way of saying "Thank You Lord, for all You do.".
These little books are made using the little mini composition notebooks found in Dollar Tree (something like 4 per pack for $1). They are covered with colored CS (just a piece on front and one on back, it is not a full wrap) and the spine is recovered with a contrasting color CS. The "medallion" is made with CS matching the spine and then green CS circle. The stamp is from stamp set T-2951 Always Remember (TAC of course LOL). The ribbon is fed through 1/8" holes in the top and bottom of the "medallion" piece.
