Rememberlutions Jar and Update

Hey y’all…as 2015 winds down it is a great time to reflect and think about all of the wonderful things that happened during the year. I really made an effort to concentrate on all of the good and positive events in my life, no matter how small they were.

Last year at this time I made a Rememberlutions Jar. You can read all about it HERE.  It’s basically a jar that you personalize and you collect memories in for the entire year. Today, I will be creating another jar for 2016.

I started with a basic quart-sized Mason jar.

Happy New Year and Rememberlutions Jars. Add quotes, Word of the Year, photos and moments. Throughout the year add positive and fun things to your jar like movie ticket stubs, concert tickets, date nights, etc. At the end of the year you can look back at all of the good things that happened during the year.I gathered tags, stencils and ribbons for decoration…

Mine was “Leap”.

I also added a skeleton key from my grandmother.

Rememberlutions Jar and Update

It was so much fun yesterday to empty my jar and read all of the positive notes that I wrote of wonderful happenings…special phone calls with dear friends, wedding announcements, births of babies and visits from friends.

This is a sweet, handmade Valentine from an elderly friend…

It was a delightful look back at what a fabulous year 2015 was.  I was amazed at how much I had done and remember how much fun I had. I hope you create a jar and collect your own memories! I can’t wait to see what 2016 brings!

    I absolutely LOVE this idea. Our lives are so busy and cluttered sometimes that it’s hard to remember what you did yesterday. What a wonderful way to honor the passing year and create a little time capsule for years to come. Wishing I had started this year’s ago. I can’t wait to start this in 2016.
    Happy New Year, 2 Bees! 🎉🎉 Bambi
