{ celebrate YOUR story } gadanke! **CLOSED**

Tuesday, November 6, 2012


No I didn't sneeze.

GADANKE (pronounced guh-dawn-kuh) is German for thought or idea, but for me it's synonymous with awesome sauce.
The last time I scrapbooked was in December 2008, I know this because it was my last month of childlessness (also known as the "good ol' days when free time was in abundance"). 
I used to LOVE scrapbooking and have 10+ bins of pretty paper to prove it {pretty paper & I sorta have a thing, don't tell Trev}.

But once Miss Muffet was born I quickly realized {basically in the delivery room} that my scrapbooking days were numbered and to this day, the 40+ page mini-albums I scrapped while preggers (see above) are completely void of any Saiger personality - no baby pictures, no mention of milestones, no teeny hospital ID bracelets, nothing. #momfail

You see my naughty itty Knol babies decided the only thing my arms should do is holding them, so that's what I did...

until GADANKE was mailed into my life.

GADANKE's anti-boring approach to journalling was the answer to my 'quick yet creative' documentation prayers; it's non-intimidating format allowed my busy mom hands to seize a few moments throughout the day to capture a baby story or two. 

Truth be told, Gabriel's 'you are loved' GADANKE journal is the only baby book I've managed to keep up with... poor kid has a bad case of 'Second Child Syndrome'. 
Each expandable GADANKE journal comes with 52 pages of clever writing prompts, charming eco-friendly papers and cute little inserts {ie. tags, envelopes, library cards} that make these keepsakes fun to not only fill but read and re-read.  
Katie - the brainchild behind GADANKE - is the epitome of "cool". She & her family live in a renovated airport hangar AAAAND she's gifting one Saige Wisdom follower with a $25 credit to her grandma inspired store - gadanke.com

What story would you want to celebrate?
for me the {become} journal is top on my Christmas wish list. 
(who am I kidding? they ALL are).

So you wanna get your story telling on? Well you best get better acquainted with GADANKE's awesome sauce newsletter & website then:

P.S. - I started reading some of the customer submissions in the Share Your Journal section and needed a kleenex after flipping through Jenn's {seeking grace} prayer journal...
so heart felt & beautiful
further proof that STORIES MATTER.


good luck & GADANKE mes amis!!
