2014 is here and it is the perfect time to start making new memories. There are many people who do great with journal writing, but if you are like me, sometimes writing in my journal is the last thing I want to do. I do however want to remember the fun times I am having throughout the year. Alas, the memory jar is born. It is a great way to quickly write down a fun thing that happened that day, or an adventure that you went on. At the end of the year, you can go back through and read them all and reminisce on the fun times that 2014 brought.
All I did to make this was take a Mason Jar and wrap a circular piece of chalkboard paper around it. It took all of 5 minutes and I had all the supplies on hand. I have seen this made with a much bigger canister and that was a great option as well.
