The End of A Journey, The Beginning of A Habit - ♡The Heart of Gratitude♡


This month has been remarkable in so many ways.  Mostly, because of you.  

I laughed a lot.  I teared up more than once.

Today, (finally)  I put together a little kit to put in the Gratitude box.

This month has been so amazing.  I don't even know where to go with this - I mean I'm not sure there is anything else I need to say.  Have you been over to visit Nancy yet?  You gotta read the post she put up late last night.  It's goooood. 

Go here!

I hope you will forgive my tardiness - I worked a full week and ran out of steam in the evenings, snuggling down into bed around nine (which is so unusual for me!) It was one of those weeks where I had stuff every day and none of it was THIS blogging stuff!  Or {GASP} my crafting stuff!

There was very little time to work on this...see that little trim I added?

 And- I've been so busy - it's still not finished!

I was hoping, thinking, that this could be a box filled with Gratitude notes, or a little book with quotes, or daily reminders, or even notes from people who visit, something like a guest book only filled with Gratitude! 

I was thinking, perhaps, of filling up the box with the papers to make pretty notes or a journal. And I might wish to add a $10 gift card to Joann's that someone special could use toward the purchase of something crafty (don't forget to combine it with a 40% off coupon! ) 

BUT If someone (or lots of someone's) commented - here and on Facebook and Instagram- If someone were to visit Nancy at too, ( and I counted the comments up) then maybe I could still send the box sometime in the next week when It is filled and finished? 

What do YOU think?



  1. Dana, I still marvel at both of your hearts for doing this the WHOLE month!! What a lovely gesture, but more than that, it is a testimony of who you both are!! How lovely!! Blessings to you! :)))))

  2. I think that box is lovely and inspiring. Makes my heart well with thankfulness just looking at the pictures. That's what I think.

  3. Oh, how sweet! It obvious that each of those items has a little piece of you in it. I don't do Instagram but I'll comment on your Facebook. Love following you both, you fill my heart with sunshine.

  4. The box is lovely. I particularly like the bird.

  5. The pictures are pure eye candy!! Love and inspiration. ❤️❤️❤️

  6. Love this idea!
    I made a prayer box, at the new year, and it too has a bird on it...
    It can make for an extra long week when we are so busy plus when we can't get to our creative outlets

  7. What a great idea!
    I have really been struggling the last few months to recover from 3 minor surgeries in 5 months.
    Gratitude has been helpful in recovering but to focus on having a heart of gratitude has really made me stop and remember and be more aware.
    Thank you for inviting me to go on this journey with you.
    It was just what I needed

  8. I am in love with it and might make my own box or jar to put gratitude notes in. I am in love with your creation. The birds are lovely and even with being tired you have done so much work. You really have done well
