I might just be over using that butterfly punch, but I like it. It doesn't look so great in the picture, but the journaling is on a white paper doily that was colored using distress ink followed by antique gold perfect pearls, so it has a sheen that you can't see in the picture.
The journaling is about how difficult it is to focus on self improvement when I'm still only a few weeks postpartum. It's not always easy to distinguish between when I'm engaging in meaningful introspection, and when I'm just beating myself up over things I can't change. I added another journaling card behind this page with a string to pull it out. I'm challenging myself to dwell on 3 of my favorite memories when I get caught in a destructive thought pattern: 1) My wedding ceremony: we laughed through the whole thing; 2) The first time Lilah said, "I love you;" and 3) Catching Michaela's first smile on camera. How do you keep your thoughts positive, when you're not feeling the best about yourself?
Michaela's first smile.
