Memory Jar for 2015

Hi everyone,

For the New Year I decided to make a memory jar.  This is not a new concept, but a great idea I saw on FB.  I plan to write down all the "good things" that happen in 2015 and place them in the jar throughout the year ... then open the jar on New Year's Eve.  It will be nice to unfold each piece of paper and reminisce about all the good stuff that happened during the year instead of the bad.  We remember the big memories, but it's the little joys in life that we tend to forget.

My jar is ready to go ...


I have a notepad from digital paper in the shape of a mason jar.  I will write my memories on the back of each sheet.  Now, this is a memory jar and not for resolutions!


If you'd like to create a memory jar all you need is a mason jar.  Decorate it with lace, ribbon, yarn, string and bling.


I used a Tim Holz idea-ology word band on the top of my jar.


Create a notepad from scrap paper - just let your imagination go wild!  You can even use a fun theme.  I used some beautiful images called 'Vintage Jars' by the Iralamija Shop. 


The pink rose on top of the lid is polymer clay with a magnet attached to the bottom.  A simple way to dress up the top of your jar.


Are you creating anything special for the New Year?  If so, please share in the comments section - I would love to hear about it!

Wishing you all love, peace and prosperity for 2015!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Hello Donna, what a lovely jar and a great idea.. I wish you all the best in 2015, a happy & Healthy New Year!

This is beautiful Donna. I was just thinking on this line, my great grandmother had a memory milk jug, the old big metal kind, every deed she did you wrote on paper and put it in the jug, I remember it was packed with little notes, she said she had been doing it for over 50 years.. I have thought about doing one for years.
