2010 Family Planner Journal

I made this family journal last year for 2009 and with just the December summery left to write I am SO EXCITED to say that it's the fullest journal I have completed in many years! I have loved doing this all year long and will now enjoy going back and readying in it over and over. I have even added pictures to it and it's fun to see how we have changed as a family over the past year.
Christmas to myself for sure!



And this is my new 2010 Family Journal, all ready to go for this next year! I am so excited about this. Since I am pregnant again and sicker then I thought I would be this will be a great way to stay up on my scrap booking that has definitely taken a back seat :) It's full of month to month calendars and a page to write a monthly summary and pages to write fun things your kids say to just random thoughts and notes!



So go and check out one of my most favorite sites that I have to give all the credit too for such a fabulous idea and one that has become my lifesaver over the year!!! You will love it too!
Oh and it's free to print it out!!! She knows how to take care of us mom's :)

I use this notebook to put it together but any would do.

I love this idea! I blogged about it and linked to this post at theatticstudio.blogspot.com (hope that's okay!).

How did you go about attaching your printouts to your notebook pages? I am scrapbook/paper challenged :).

Thanks CEE!!! And to answer your ? I use spray adhesive to attach all the calendar and summary pages. I KNOW this works because after a year all the pages are still hooked in just as tight :) Hope that helps, thanks again for the link!

Cee said...

Hey, NO problem :). Thanks for the quick reply!

I was afraid you would say that about spray adhesive. That stuff gives me anxiety. lol Not really, but it's not my favorite. I WILL try it though because I love this!

CEE hahaha I had the same feeling about the spray adhesive. I like using it with paper because you only spray a light amount on it and it works great!! Good luck :)

the website you suggested for the journal is suspended is there a way you could explain how you did yours?
