I hope you all had a great day off or a great Monday at work if you didn't have the day off!
You may have seen the Good Things Jar pinned all over the place this winter. Like here, here, here and here.
The basic idea is to record all of the good things that happen on little notes and throw them in a jar. Then, on New Year's Eve, open up all of the notes and remember all of the good things that happen to you that year.
If there is something I love more than adorable jars, it is adorable little notes!
So, of course I had to make one.
And of course, all of my mason jars are at home in New York, waiting patiently to be used for our wedding decor.
Instead, I decided to use the vase in the middle of this display on my dining room table (you can kind of see it peeking out from behind the hurricane glasses here...)
I made up a little tag for the vase to match our dining room chairs (kind of).
Then, I cut up a bunch of scraps into (roughly) 2x3 inch squares. It didn't have to be perfect, just big enough to write on. Now we have no reason to record the good things that happen in 2013!
I can't wait to open up all of our notes and read them next New Year's Eve! I think it is going to be such a fun way to reflect back on our year!
Would you (or do you already!) have a good things jar for 2013?
