A Handful of Memories
So, I'm aware this post is a little late into 2013 (better late than never right?) and I was planning on doing this a lot sooner, however I’ve only just managed to buy a jar for this post (which was pretty much the whole point haha) BUT I’ve now bought one and wrote up my notes of what I wanted to include in the jar, so here goes…
At the beginning of the year I had seen a lot about memory pots and good ways to record memories throughout the year. The years just seem to fly by! It ends up getting to the end of the year and I always say to myself, where has this year gone? But this year I’ve decided to do things differently and record some memories in some sort of positivity jar. The aim of the jar is to capture memories and positive moments throughout the year by just writing a note or a few sentences on a small piece of paper of things that have made you happy or just made you smile and then adding it to the jar.
I decided to do this memory pot with my boyfriend, so we can record the happy memories and moments which mean a lot to us (and which we tend to forget). The first positive thing to add to the jar for 2013 was having my boyfriend Ashley as my New Years kiss; it was prefect and takes a well deserved place in the jar as a starting off point.
I bought this cheap jar for just £1.49 from TK MAXX and decorated it with a simple ribbon for now and can add more to it at a later stage, I also thought the 'Made with Love' writing on the front was really cute and fitted the idea of the jar well. We will be writing little notes of positive thoughts/moments and enjoyable memories throughout the year and then the plan is to open the jar next New Years Eve and read through all the positive and happy moments from this year, by doing this it helps to be grateful for those little things which sometimes people may tend to forget easily but which play a big part in making us happy. I can’t wait to create some amazing memories for this year.
Hope you enjoyed this! It's something quick, cheap and easy to create (really cute too!). Is this something anyone else has considered creating or would be inspired to now create?
