Good morning!! Today I wanted to share with you what we're doing at our house this month to express all the things we're grateful for.

I threw this together really quick, but it means SO much! Some simple bags, from Michael's, I stamped on a few, and added the numbers 1-30. Then trimmed out cardstock to write on.

I hung up the bags and each day, we write down what we're grateful or thankful for :)

I have all of the card stock strips and a Sharpie in a jar on the china cabinet, right next to where the bags are.

At the end of the month, I'm going to bind all of these bags into a little book so we have a family grateful journal for 2013!!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a beautiful Monday!


  1. ok i truly love this idea!! may have to use it for next year. i like how you did it the kitchen!! perfect

  2. Such a great idea.....and what a great keepsake it will make!

  3. Wonderful idea Becky, I love having a way to write down the little gratitudes of each day and how fun to bind it in book form when done!

  4. You are so smart and creative!
    I love that idea.
    I am just doing an Instagram photo a day because I want to be a little more active there.
    But I like the idea of including the kids.
    Pinning this for next year :)

  5. This is so awesome! I love the idea of everyone writing what they are thankful for and putting it in a book!

    Like Mary Jo, I'm going to pin this for next year!

  6. What a great idea! I love it!! One year when we had a "friends" Thanksgiving we wrote down what we were thankful for on slips of paper and baked them into crescent rolls. We opened up our rolls at dinner and read them out --not knowing who wrote what. It was fun!

  7. That is a fabulous idea! I love that you're going to bind it into a book. What great memories that will be to look back on.

  8. This is such a wonderful idea to have the whole family involved :)
    It will make such a special mini book to be treasured forever :)
    Love this idea
