Caravan Sonnet: for the love of mini-albums

for the love of mini-albums

Ever since I was a little girl I have had a love affair with mini-albums and mini-journals. One of my favorite Christmas presents for my sister was a mini-album (shown above and below) of 25 wishes I "wished" for her. I loved spending the time thinking and praying through different wishes and prayers and loved adding in precious pictures that brought back many special memories and laughter. 
One of my favorite things about mini-albums are that they are so personal and can be easily displayed and carried with you.
I have also found that mini albums can be a sweet present to someone going through a difficult time.
One of my favorite mini-albums that I ever created was a "mini teapot album" for a friend who was going through a particularly difficult time this summer.
When I was teaching I loved to create mini albums or mini books for the girls Bible Class that I taught as a special little gift. Often these books looked different depending on the class but I loved to try and give a little mini-gift that they could take with them.
Mini-albums are so adorable and can be created for a ton of different occasions. 
If y'all have been around the blog for a little bit then you know that two of my favorite shop items are two Christmas mini-albums. Both the "Merry and Bright" and the "Homegrown Christmas" mini-albums have been best sellers in the shop and they are always a favorite of mine to make!
Last year it was so fun to create two engagement mini-albums for two of my sweet friends. 
And two years ago it was so fun to create mini-albums as swag gifts for a blogger meet upHave y'all created any mini-albums before? Have they been for a trip or a special occasion? Would love to hear about them! 

Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday friends!
