"Blessings Book"




I simply adore this little book. This is my "Blessings Book". I created it for myself to write about some of the many blessings in my life.

Serendipities.

Miracles.

God-Winks.

Things which I always want to remember, and never take for granted....They are in here. It has become one of my dearest "companions".... It brings a smile to my face whether I am adding to it, or I am reading through it. It is a true treasure to me, I keep it near where I can see it each day.... and when my time is done here, I shall pass it on to loved ones....

I hope they too will consider it a treasure.




To create my little book, I simply took an old little notebook I had for years, I think I had only written in it once..... The outside cover was a bit faded, and so I did a little "altered art" on it....... I glued on some pieces of torn scrapbook paper, a little vintage picture I printed out, a few bits of lace, and some little scrapbook "gems".

I also added a sweet quote sticker to the back... glued on some beads, and added a few sparkly-sprinkles........




On the front I also added the sweet little "Blessed" word...... because it reminds me that I am indeed blessed, every day of my life..... and I tied on a couple of pretty beads with some oh-so-sweet sheer ribbon I had to the wire binding......



Anyway.... I just wanted to share my little book with you.......

I hope it will inspire you to create a treasure of your own....


I can see I will be making more of these........ for affirmations.......gratitude journals.... etc........... I once swore I would "never" get into scrapbooking because it just didn't look like fun....... but, boy am I having fun now!

"Never say Never"

Joyce, It's wonderful seeing you back blogging again.
Your book is so beautiful! What a lovely idea of a "blessings book". You have such a wonderful attitude. God bless you!
With all the sadness in our lives a blessing book would be a delightful change.
Thanks for sharing your precious book.
