Inspiration in a homemaking journal
I actually got the idea from Jewels, a while ago. What she suggested was basically that you take a plain notebook, and making it beautiful and inspirational by gluing in homemaking-related photos, and perhaps some quotes that you would love to come across as you're making an entry. Of course, you should leave space for your own entries as well!
I used photos cut up from a catalog, along with some texts I printed out, and as you can see I left some blank spaces as well. The photos are of things that make me inspired, homemaking-wise - nicely set up tables, prettily made beds, and all sorts of beautiful and practical home utensils. Of course a similar journal can have different themes as well (for example, a homeschooling record notebook might contain photos of children or fun activities, a gardening journal can be decorated by photos of your favorite plants, etc).
Just thought I would share this, as it's really easy to make, aesthetically pleasing, and fun to do with children.
