Hope you lovely ladies have had a wonderful weekend so far! I've spent mine sick -boo. But I still had some fun yesterday cheering my Louisville Cardinals on in the annual rivalry game against UofK. They pulled out the win! We also got snow - about 4 inches or so. Kobe is in heaven. Me, eh, I'm neutral. But man is it pretty!
Anways, onto the fun!
I'm not a huge 'resolution' person. I feel like goals are more realistic & attainable. Both short term & long term. I will be outlining my 2013 goals [read: how i will OWN 2013] in my post on January 2 when I link up with Miss Janna for the 'I Define My Own Perception' linkup. Seriously excited. Post is already finished for this bad boy.
One of the main things I want to impliment this year [besides business & health goals] is having more FUN! That's right, making more memories, finding the fun in the everyday, etc.
For this reason, I've created... dun - du - duhhh... The Joy Jar! Basically it's a jar to store all of your fun memories all year long. Then, at the end of the year, you read through them & remember!
What you need:
- A large mason jar w/ lid.
- Letter cut-outs. [I got mine in a package from Michael's crafts]
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Modge podge/ glue
- Paper cut into strips
Step 1: Decorate
Basically I took my mason jar & hot glued the word 'JOY' onto the front. You could use any word you like, but I thought 'Joy Jar' had a nice ring to it. I decorated my lid with glitter. Just brushed on Modge-podge & sprinkled on glitter. A clear spray coat would be nice to top it off with, but mine is MIA, so I used hairspray...
Mine has a permanent position on the kitchen counter, front & center, so I can remember to add my memories.
Will you make a 2013 'Joy Jar'? What would you call yours??
