    Make your own Journal - Growing up, I kept a daily journal. I always enjoyed looking back at previous entries to see what had changed over the course of a year. These days, I can’t seem to find the time to journal, but I do try to jot down a little note from each day on my perpetual calendar/journal. The idea is very simple — flip to the current date and at the end of the day, write down something that happened. Some days it is big things like “Annie took her first steps.” Other days it is small, like “needed more than one cup of coffee this morning.” The first year is the least rewarding, but I imagine that in 10 years, it will be a daily treat to be reminded of what happened on that date over the last decade. I think these would make great gifts this season, not only for adults but also for older kids, baby showers, retirement parties, wedding showers and more. Enjoy! — Ashley Vintage postcards can be found at most flea markets and antique stores. Though stamping the dates looks like a long process, it actually took about an hour to complete this entire project. Materials fruit box and 12 postcards found at flea markets (my box was $1.00, postcards $1.00 or less each) 180 4 x 6″ lined index cards date stamp paper cutter (or scissors) twine (for gift wrapping) Instructions 1. Cut index cards in half. 2. Stamp the month and date on each card. This step took a little under five minutes per month. 3. Trim postcards to the same width of the cut index cards and just a bit longer than the index cards. 4. Organize postcards by date, dividing each month with the postcards. DONE!

    This is such a cute idea. It's a daily calendar that can be reused each year and gets better the longer you use it. Each day you write the year and something that happened that day like, "(Child's name) took her first steps." I imagine the first year wouldn't be as fun, but imagine how neat it would be in 10 years. Think I will start this on New Years!

    LOVE this idea... It's a daily calendar that is reused each year and gets better the longer you use it. Each day you write the year and something that happened that day. Imagine how neat it would be in 10 years! (Think I'll start this at the New Year...). Great idea for the first year in your new home or really any year!!! I'm getting a cute index card holder/cards & starting today!! One could paste in a pic, write a poem, draw plus write something that happened. So coo!!!!

    Vintage postcard calendar journal: jot down a tidbit from each day. "first year is the least rewarding, but I imagine that in 10 years, it will be a daily treat to be reminded of what happened on that date.." Completing this, stamping, trimming and all only takes about an hour, divide each month with a postcard. - SUCH A CUTE IDEA

Love this memory maker and easy sort of family journal. Every day, you write something you did, so the next year you can see what you did on that same day last year . Via Wit and Whistle
