This christmas, I decided to make journals for my mother- and sister-in-law so that they too have the opportunity to record all the things they are learning and have something to look back on in the years to come. My mother-in-law is already a steady diary-keeper and can tell you exactly what she was doing this time 3 years ago (and she can often tell me what I was doing too!) so I thought it might be nice for them to have a homemade journal to keep this coming year!
I bought in blank notebooks, again from Panduro, to do up... and had lots of fun sticking in little bits for them to use, little date labels, quotes that I have found useful, pockets for keepsakes and memories. Here's some photos - perhaps they'll inspire you to have a go! I stupidly forgot to take photos before I wrapped them up and sent them off, but my mother-in-law has very kindly taken some photos of hers, now in use, for you to peruse!
