I have kept a spirit of gratitude throughout the year with my 52 Gratitudes project and it has been wonderful. Last year, I joined Cathy Zielske in her challenge: 30 Days of Thankful, project and my plan is to join her again this year. Because I'm already participating in a gratitude project I'll just ramp up my thankfulness and gratitude completing an extra gratitude each week in order to complete both projects.
God is so good I'm sure it won't be a problem.
This year, instead of using Cathy Z's pre-made 6x6 album I am creating my own templates but which are very similar to Cathy's (as you can see above with the Title page). While I am making a 6 x 6 album for the 30 Days of Thankful project, I will continue each week with the 4 x 6 template for my 52 Gratitudes.
Most of the days of gratitude will look something like this:
...and if you perused Cathy Z's templates they are pretty close to her format - but I'm not a graphic designer and creating templates is still not easy. Between now and November 1st I would like to figure out how to make my text box even on both sides. I've taken one of Cathy Z's classes and I'm pretty sure she has instructions for something like that in her class I'll need to go hunt down.
But, back to gratitude and thankfulness...
I'm really excited for this project again this year. I'll get them all printed and put into a 6 x 6 album the same as last year too, so I can pull it off the shelf and be reminded of God's goodness.
