I had seen journal jars on a couple of different blogs that I read, and I thought that would be a fun thing for them and a great way to get them to write and think about things. (I know, I know, I'm such a teacher). So I found the jars and journals at IKEA...I love that store... and I just jazzed them up a bit. Then I printed out a lot of journal starters (questions for them to ponder and write about. i.e. Write about something that just drives you batty? Describe a time when a prayer was answered. What are you like now? Do you like yourself? If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be and why? Who was your favorite teacher in elementary school, and why?) The girls really liked them. There are actually journal starters for mothers, fathers, etc. I thought this would be a good gift to give to someone who has just found out they are pregnant. A great way to journal the entire pregnancy. What do you think?
I have the list of Journal starters, so if you're interested just drop me a comment and I'll send them your way.
I found a few other treasures today at Hobby Lobby. The deals weren't as great as others I've read about on the blogs I stalk, but they were still pretty darn good. I'll post the pics in the AM since they are still out in my car and I'm just too lazy to go get them and take pics of them right now. I will say though, if you want some fun rod iron home accents, you might want to go by. My HL only had them for 66% off, but that was still a pretty good deal.
Okay, I'm off to watch The Tudors. Ever since I watched The Other Boleyn Girl, I am interested in learning about that time period. Plus watching Henry Cavill in action doesn't hurt either. He really should have been cast as Edward in Twilight, but oh well.
Okay, have a great night.
