Hello, friends! Planning is very a personal endeavor and works best when it is customized to your life. There is no right way to plan, only what works best for you. The Cocoa Daisy Kits...
November is a great time of the year to reflect on all that you are thankful for. What better way to do this, than will some daily documenting of gratitude in your planner, journals, and memory planners! The Gather Collection is full of beautiful elements to help you get those gratitude pages started. Today, our Creative Team shares a few ways they like to document the things they are thankful for and we think you will be grateful for the inspiration!
Pauline loves to document gratitude and find unique ways to do so each month.
"I really love to document gratitude. I have done this for 3 years now I and I find it really therapeutic. Every day, I try to remember 3 good things that happened (or more). It can be big things, but also little things, in order to remember that little things are everything. This month, I was inspired by the gratitude dashboard from the Gather Planner Dashboard Kit, and I decided to change the setup of my gratitude page. As a background, I used a page from the Gather A5 Planner Pages and the A5 gratitude dashboard. Since I didn't have enough space for all 30 days I added the November personal dashboard. As I said, the dashboard, with the boxes inspired me to have a box a day. Of course, there aren't 30 boxes, so I decided to use the cute leaf post-it from the Gather Planner Kit for the other days. I added the numbers stickers from the Planner Kit for each day. The personal dashboard is fixed with some washi tape.
This is the other side of the personal dashboard. As I said, I used a leaf sticky note per day. In order to have enough space for all the month. I also added some decorations, using various stickers/die cuts and free printables.
¬†I used another leaf and I glued a printable mushroom. Then, I used a stamp from the Gather Memory Keeping Stamp Sets. I finished with another of the Gather Planner Printable. I really like to use printable instead of stickers when I have to stamp because the ink dries more quickly. The other reason is that I save some stickers for during the month when I don't like (and don't have time!) to use the glue...Now, I'll just have to write on my page every evening, or the next morning with my coffee, in order to document November gratitude."
We love Casie's title page that is sure to inspire her reflection on gratitude this month.
"I love fall and the slowing pace that November provides and the beautiful color palette of the Gather Collection. I wanted a bold cover page for my November memory planning pages.
The quote I used was found on Pinterest and is a perfect welcome to documenting gratitude. "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." I love the alpha stickers and stamps to create re-write this quote. There are Layers of washi strips included on the spine of the pages.
The pattern paper with the watercolor-like circles from the Gather Traveler's Notebook Memory Keeping Kit brings all the colors from the collection together. I plan to document daily gratitude on the memory planner pages that follow this introduction. I look forward to seeing how you all document gratitude using this month's Gather Collection."
How fun is this super stampy memory planner spread from April? This showcases another way to incorporate gratitude in your memory keeping.
"There is a lot of stampy fun for tracking gratitude on this spread in my memory planner.
I started with the ‚ÄúFeeling Grateful‚Äù box stamp from the Gather Traveler's Notebook Memory Keeping Kit and layered numbers and leaves around them.
The easiest item to mix and match among Cocoa Daisy collections are the stamps! Both the dotted line stamp and ‚ÄúToday in one word‚Äù stamps are from previous Memory Keeping Collections.
Loved the intentional practice of sitting down to record daily gratitudes. The stamps were the perfect backdrop."
