5 Years Passed

Do you guys remember me posting about 5 year diary where you write one line a day for years?

Just end of 2018, I finally completed my first 5 year diary! It was quite a commitment to write something every single night but when you make this a routine it comes naturally. Because this is a routine now for me, I decided to do another one for next 5 years!

Found cheap one at Chapters for $10. Not a fan of the cover but can't complain when it's cheap.

One Line A Day 2014-2018

It's fun to read what I did on specific day for 5 year years. Here's some random days I'm sharing!

I've mentioned this to my previous post, you should totally try doing this when you have your new born baby and record what their first 5 years was like. Just looking back on my arts and crafts gives me so much inspiration and motivation to continue what I like doing!
