Hello All,

Popping in to share a little something I have been working on. A while back I was thinking of making something to keep track of all the cute little things my 3 year old says daily. I wanted something small that could be put in my purse or sit on the counter without being a big deal. I came across a set of little Composition notebooks at Target that were perfect (soft and bendable cover).

I pulled out one of my favorite paper lines from My Minds Eye "Lost and Found Two"(I have almost gone through the 6 x6 pad in a month, LOVE IT!) and covered the notebook. I decorated the front with items I had in my random button jar. The felt is from Papertrey Ink along with the flower die used to create the flower (although I did make changes to the flower to make it my own) I have already started writing things down and since he says so much that deserves to be written down it is permanently sitting on the kitchen counter.

Here is a journal I made for a friend who just had her second little one.I like this one a lot better, mainly because of the paint splatters, which are so fun!! I got a wide mouth mason jar and decorated it with matching paper (sadly pictures didn't turn out). I think Journal Jars are awesome gifts for Mothers, because there are always things to write down. Putting a decorated jar on your counter looks a lot better than just a notebook. :)

Thanks for stopping in,
