I can't believe it's almost 2017. A couple of days to go... I wanted to share a little project I created for my family. We hosted Christmas and I made these memory jars for anyone that wanted one. I cut out the numbers using my Silhouette and vinyl, and placed them on the outside of a mason jar ($1 at Michaels plus a teacher discount), then added a little ribbon on top. We've done this in my little family for a couple of years - when big moments happen that I want to remember, I write them down on a small piece of paper, and then place inside. On New Years eve we open the jar and reread the slips. It's nice to remember those moments that are sometimes forgotten in the craziness of life.
This time around my boys want to use their jars for coin collecting (since they have now learned that the Coinstar machines will turn their spare change into an Amazon gift card). I'm also thinking of using a jar to have the kids place their New Year's resolutions in and then compare them at the end of the year. Since I love the look of Mason jars, the more the merrier around here.
I hope you have a great day!
