Craft Ideas - Journals
Pinner said: DIY treasure book. If you use your imagination you could put anything in these pockets. For example i would put every flower petal that my boyfriend has given me the past year because he loves giving me flowers all the time. And them when I fill the book up I will give it to him as a crafty anniversary present. But thats just my idea of what I could possibly do. Whats yours?

This seems like a really therapeutic idea ~~~"I was really unhappy as a teen and last year, at age 26, I sat down and wrote to my younger self. I told her the things I know now and what to do to try and survive this crazy roller coaster we call life. Full of hope and courage, it's the best toolkit I can share to those younger than me.
