I’m trying to find more uses for my free Christmas poster maker tool so today, I’m sharing a lovely idea for a poster to share all of the things in your life that you’re thankful for.
This year more than ever, I’ve come to realise that no matter what’s going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for – I know that sometimes you just have to look a little harder for it but there’s always something. Easier said than done I know but this is something that’s got me through a difficult year so humour me for a few minutes. 😉
I used the poster maker to write a list of just a few of the things that I’m thankful for right now in my life and just looking at it as I walk past it on the wall in the hall makes me smile and gives me a little reminder as I’m going about my day that we’re really very lucky – even when we don’t feel like it.
I hope it has the same effect on the kids too as I did ask for their input too. In fact, I bet you can spot the two on the list that they came up with easily!
If you do have a go at making your own, I’d definitely recommend printing it out as it looks amazing in a simple frame. I got some lovely ones from the pound shop that are great for this but our Christmas version is in an IKEA frame which is not much more and looks fab too.
It’s super easy to make your own using this amazing little widget!
Try and go for around 15 phrases to make it look good and don’t go for single words or very short phrases otherwise it will look a bit off and won’t line up! Also, when you’re downloading it, you need to allow pop ups as the download box shows as a a pop up.
This would make an amazing gift but I’d definitely recommend making one for yourself and I’d really love you to have a go at making one of your own for your home! Do let me know in the comments if you do or even better, tag me in any Instagram photos (I’m @frugalfamily on there) so I can see.
I think I might do a few posts over the next few months to highlight the great things you can use this for – for yourself and as a gift. Last year I use ours to make a Valentine’s gift, a Birthday present for Miss Frugal as well as making loads as Christmas presents for people.
