Every year my daughter makes me a journal. Each one is covered in details of things she knows I love! They must take her hours but each year she obviously saves every image she sees in magazines and catalogues of things she knows I adore. Then makes them into a collage on the front and back of a blank journal.
Each year seems to have a theme. She does the front and back covers. The end result is gorgeous! I look forward to seeing what comes next!
She knows me well too, we have jewels and pink, birds and cupcakes and endless delights.
It's a fabulous idea you could adapt for someone close to you, just personalising it for them. Imagine a french theme or ballet or fashion. What about shoes for our shoe junkie friend? It is a little bit of an inspiration board right there. Inspiring every time you look at it.
They have a glossy contact finish and look so professional and usually a little note wishing me a wonderful year inside the first page.
Fancy journals and diaries are expensive, this would be priceless but cost so little to make. It could equally well be a diary or planner.
Many of us have a pile of magazines. They need to go into your inspirations scrap books and be made into wonderful things so you can enjoy the images everyday!
