My Favorite Things Thursday

I missed it last week, because I was otherwise engaged...but I'm back to join Carolyn for another installment of My Favorite Things Thursday.
I'm so excited to share with you guys my current favorite thing.
I still can't remember how I stumbled across Sherry's blogs HE{ART} and Altered to Perfection but I have enjoyed getting to know her, her beautiful family and seeing all the lovely things she creates.
Recently, she posted some journals that she had custom-made....and I knew I had to have one.
I placed my order thru her Etsy shop, then she emailed me with some questions to get to better know my personality and likes and such.
My favorite colors: turquoise and purple
My favorite Bible verse: Psalm 18:30
My style: Vintage
There were a few other things that I can't recall at the moment.
Regardless, she NAILED it!
She absolutely made it perfectly for ME!  (Guess that's why it's called Altered to Perfection!)  ;)

Wanna see??

Isn't it beautiful?!
(This was taken with my Evo since my camera died, so the pictures it really don't do it justice.)

She put such thought and detail into it.

She even made a pocket on the inside cover and included some cute bookmarks.

I absolutely LOVE it!!  I have written in it every morning since I got it.
I am not a "diary" type person.  I just write down notes from my devotions, prayer requests or just whatever it on my mind/heart at the moment.
It really has been my favorite thing and will continue to be for a very long time!

Go check out Sherry's Etsy shop and maybe she can alter something to perfection just for YOU.

Also, go check out Carolyn and the other ladies' Favorite Things.


  1. That is so pretty! I wonder if she can make me some sort of planner for teaching...

  2. That is such a cute idea! I think it is great that she was able to capture you just by some questions. She is good at what she does. ;) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Just saw this. How in the world did I miss it? =) Thank you so much for your kind words.
    Glad that you really loved your journal. I just sent out three today and it made me so happy to think that I tried to really match what the person asked for.
    I hope it brings them as much happiness.
    Thanks again!! God bless you!
