Giving Thanks – Our tradition of a Gratitude Journal

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Giving Thanks Gratitude Sketchbook Blue Sky Papers

Every year, we share one thing that each team-member is grateful for. We capture these blessings in a “Gratitude Journal” of our favorite new design of that year. This annual tradition is one of my favorites and I cannot wait to share it with you!


Being a team of nearly a dozen, we have a lot to be thankful for. Collectively, we are so very grateful for YOU! We are grateful for your continued support of handmade, your appreciation for the art of books, and using them to journal and capture memories. Because of you, we can do what we love – make beautiful books. With all of our hearts, we thank you.



Do you have an annual tradition for Thanksgiving?  No matter how silly or meaningful your tradition may be, it’s so fun to look back over the previous years’ Gratitude Journals and laugh… or cry.  After all, it’s all part of your story.  And your story should be told.


Speaking of traditions, don’t forget about our annual sale for the holidays.  We only have this one!  And, it isn’t just any old sale – it is pretty humongous for a small company like ours! Because we love that you continue to support us, we want to show our gratitude with a Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday sale of 40% off! (WHOA!)  Then, through December 20th, enjoy 20% off your holiday orders!


Thank you again for making all of this possible – thank you, thank you, thank you!

All of us at Blue Sky Papers


A grateful heart is an open heart.
