I love this. I need to do it. I think it will make me happier every day.


Hi Em, love this idea!

Just wondering about the "remember when" journal you started awhile back, and if you mightbe going to continue with it.


"listen to screaming, respond to screaming with some of your own screaming. you run out of money again" ha, ha, have you been staring in my windows? this sounds like probably everyone's life and yes we can all do the pity party for one quite well. (i have mastered that art) so true i am so lucky to have so much and i am so thankful. thank you for the wake up call. at least you didn't have to scream it to me! ;)


I have a lot to be thankful for and yet I often forget that. Thanks for the reminder! I'm going to begin a gratitude journal for the new year.


Great post Em....Happy Thanksgiving to you all,

I made a gratitude journal from your original idea a couple years age, it truely changed the way I looked at my life.
I am ready to make another, everyday after I was tucked safely in my bed, I'd reflect on my day and I could always find something to be grateful for. (often lots more than just one thing).
PS I do believe you were the one who started the junk journal craze. There should be royalties in there somewhere don't you think??


oh em... i love how you share the real part of life but tap into a deep love of life even more so. i've been keeping a gratitude journal for years, when i am going through depression (because some of us just do), i go back through my journals to remember the past month, year, or years have had many blessings in them. looking forward to a peek into yours soon.


You know, your party sounds SO familiar to this broke mama. I have to say that so many blogs can actually bum me out when I read them because they seem to create this impossible ideal for me. I mean, I *know* they are just the highlight reel of someone's life but I LOVE to read the behind the scenes. The really REAL moments that we all deal with. Because when we look at it and laugh at it together, we get perspective. And really, it's not so bad...not at all. <3


I just had to add that you are such a beautiful person and an inspiration to me. I love all of the crafty projects that you share here and I'm sending out a little prayer to the universe tonight to send a lovely person like you into my life. Becoming a new mom has changed a lot of my relationships and I'd just love to meet some earthy, creative souls like yourself. xoxo
