Make: A Jar of Good Things
Andrea posted an excellent list on her blog this week entitled '100 Things that make me happy and depend only on me'. The post reminded me of an idea which I nabbed from my creative friend Emma Blue at the beginning of the year. Emma posted a photo on Instagram at the end of 2015 of her 'jar of good things' which I loved. It's the simplest 'make' ever as all you need is an empty jar and some coloured paper!
The idea is to cut up some paper into strips and as the year goes by, write happy moments on them and collect them inside your jar. At the end of the year (on New Year's Eve?) you then look through the memories from the last year that you may otherwise have forgotten about. You could even geek out and categorise them using different colours, eg blue for friendship, red for love, green for adventures..? Sometimes I can be guilty of being a bit of a pessimist, so it's fun to try and focus on the positive things, however small they may be.
