Gratitude Album

It has become a tradition in my family to take note of what we are grateful for on Thanksgiving.

To go along with this tradition, I create some sort of gratitude holder.  

Last year it was this Gratitude Box:

The year before, this little suitcase (which somehow never got posted to my blog):
And in 2008, it was a meander album {instructions are here}:

This year, I decided to create some simple tags:

The backside looks like this ( I simply ran regular manilla shipping labels right through the manual-feed tray of the printer):
 Each tag has a different quote about gratitude.

Since I had to come up with 24, I kept the designs simple and made them all with DCWV Harvest Gathering papers and some paper doilies.

They will hang from a branch in a cranberry-filled vase so that everyone can take one down and fill it out:

And then they will all be bound together in this little envelope mini:
so we can flip through it next year.


  1. These are so gorgeous! What a beautiful idea!!!

  2. Thanks so much, Regina! It has become a fun tradition!


Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I love that you are leaving a little note to let me know you were here!
