Because of this past move, I have been thinking about what I could do to create traditions for our family and make keepsakes that don’t become a burden to store and move. I came up with the idea of doing a family journal.
Yes, I could have done a physical book, but I thought being able to give each member a paper so we can write at the same time would ensure it to be completed and then we could share it with each other.
I headed to the dollar store for their 4×6 photo album books. (They are lightweight which is good for having to move around)
I printed the PDF which you can find in the shop here.
Cut out the parts and added a backing of orange to make the cover stronger.
In the shop I included the Legal sized paper for the inserts so there are 4 to a page rather than just 3 with an 8.5 x 11 letter sized paper and plan on printing enough to fit the journal so it is ready to go for the years to come. Also I plan on printing off a 4×6 photo of our family to put in with each year! I am really excited to have this system set up so I will be prepared and ready to go!
Ps. Keep your eye out for the Christmas version of the Family Journal!
