Happy Little Thoughts...

I've been spending a lot of time watching YouTube videos lately.

I'm getting really into decorating my paper planner and looking for fun little craft projects I can do when I have some downtime. These days I've been spending a lot of my work knitting time watching every crafty YouTube video out there.

I can't remember now where I saw this project, but I loved this idea - a jar of memories.

All I needed was some kind of bottle/jar/bowl, some post-it notes, and a pen. As things happen throughout the year, I'm jotting them down on the post-it note with the date, folding it up and putting it in the jar. Some things in there are events (like concerts, hockey games, etc) and other things are just happy little things that happened here and there in life.
 Knitting Like Crazy: Memories Jar
I received this cute little bottle from an old coworker. She gave it to me on my last day in the lab two years ago. I'd been storing random paper clips and stuff in it, but this is a way better use for it.

I really love this memory jar idea for a couple reasons. First, it will be fun to go through it at the end of the year and see all the great things that happened in 2016. Second, it's kind of nice to write down random happy things when they happen. Even when they are things like having a good workout or finishing a really awesome book - it's nice to focus on the happy little everyday things in life!

I'm not exactly sure what I'll do with the post-it notes at the end of the year. I used to be really into scrapbooking, so maybe I'll try to incorporate them into some new scrapbook project. Who knows! :)
