There are always things to be thankful for, even on the gloomy days when you just want to bury your head under the covers. I especially like to focus on the little things that might get overlooked, like making a new purchase, texting with a friend that's recently moved away, or being reminded of something that your better half does that helps keep you sane.
So it's that time of year for me to gather up supplies and put together My Thankful 30 album. This will be my fourth year and I'm still using the same prompt list that I created when I first ventured into this memory keeping project. I've enjoyed looking back on what has changed each year for the prompts.
I really liked the simplicity of last year's mini album, so I think I'll be sticking with that format. It was scraps of white cardstock bound together with rings. Keeping it uncomplicated is key for managing a daily photo project, especially since right after November, I'll move into documenting each day in December.
My initial kit is made up of pieces from the Gather the Good mini kit designed by Brandi Kincaid for Kelly Purkey and papers and ephemera from Crate Paper's Gather collection by Maggie Holmes. Of course I'll add some other items, you know, like stamps and mini flair.
If you're interested in joining me in November to photograph your moments of thankfulness, please share on Instagram using #mythankful30 so that I can see your beautiful photos! You can find the prompt list here, and all past posts with my albums here. Happy fall!
