Here is the answer =] A pretty vintage top. Record Notebook. Vintage postcard calendar journal. Growing up, I kept a daily journal.

vintage postcard calendar 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.

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.

Bird Nest Necklace. Today's DIY is a bird nest necklace.

Bird Nest Necklace

It's simple to make and perfect for last minute gifts. Here's how to make it... First, take your wire and begin twisting it around three beads to form a small cluster. These will be the eggs in the nest. After these are secure, begin wrapping the wire around the beads to make the nest. Once you've got the shape and size nest you want, leave 2-3 inches of the end to make a loop at the top for a chain. Hope you enjoy this DIY!
