DIY: Happy Journals & A New Year

I can't believe 2013 is coming to an end and 2014 is quickly approaching.  I been reflecting a lot on what has happen this year and I can't wait to welcome 2014 while reaching for the stars! I have been thinking a lot on my goals and what I want to accomplish in 2014 and I have to admit, it's scary but like they say, if your dreams don't scare you, dream bigger and that is exactly what I plan on doing. I am going to greet 2014 with ambition, determination, and a whole lot of faith. 2014 is going to be a Make Things Happen kind of year and to hold myself accountable, I created these fun mini journals to write my goals down and document my Hoorays! and my Trial and Errors so I make sure I don't lose site of my bigger picture. When I came across these mini journals, I had no idea what I was going to do with them but regardless, they were adorable and $1.00 each. I picked up several of them hoping to use them in the near future. I came across these tutorial  and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my mini journals.

I gathered various supplies that I already had in my craft stash. I used Glitter Letters and Pocket Pages from Me and My Big Ideas , some mini bows from the Recollection brand at Michael's  and some ruffle ribbon I had from a previous project.

I simply hot glued my ruffle ribbon and a mini bow onto a Pocket Page and then glued it to my mini journal. From there, I wanted to personalize each of my journals with my gold Glitter Letters. This project took me less than 5 minutes to create each and I love how each one turned out.

I plan on mailing these Happy Journals to some my friends to help them set their goals for the New Year and make the best of 2014!
