I'm looking to make a weekly gratitude journal based on my daily gratitude list. So basically each week I'd list each days worth of things I'm grateful for. Just stumped on what type of album this would suit? Has anyone done this?

What do you like to use, albums, size, etc? Is it going to have photos or be more of an art journal type of project? There's so many possibilities that a little more information would help to narrow it down for suggestions.

I've never done a project like this but I could see myself doing an art journal in this theme really easy or even a smash book.

How about a 4x6 album? It is enough room to write your 7 things plus you could add in a photo here and there or a piece of pattern paper or word art.

I've seen mini albums specifically made for this. Unfortunately, I don't have any links for you.

Once, a very long time ago, I covered a little spiral-bound notebook that I picked up from a bin in M's. I think I paid $1 for the book. But the final journal (it had lined pages) was really cute.

Since your journal entries are lists (and not photos), I found it easier to manage a small little notebook. I think the cover was 4x8.

good luck!

You should look at Monika Wright's gratitude journals or at when Cathy Z did her 30 days of gratitude.

I've just used the dollar store mini notebooks in the past. You could start with that until you figure out what format to use. A smaller divide page protector book like 8x8 might work well, too. You could write your gratitude list on journaling cards and add in some photos.

I would love to do it project life style, but can't get the kits locally and shipping from the store here is astronomical to Australia! I'd love to do a mix of art journal and mini album so it has photos and lists as well as coasters, tickets and anything else. So really a divided page smash book!
