The new year is upon us and as I tucked into a chocolate bomb with ice cream, I realised that only 2 days into January I was already breaking my new years resolution to eat more healthy. Different year, same story. I knew full well I wouldn't stick to it so why did I bother making it? So, I've decided that my 'new' new years resolution is to write down one funny/happy/good thing that has happened each day. My twist on this diary style idea is that I'm going to store all these memories in a jar and next January open it up and read all the things that made me laugh in 2014.
I bought this 'Korken' glass jar from Ikea for £2 and the ribbons were just 20p a piece from a local haberdashery shop. My first thought was to tie them in a fancy bow, however, it didn't take me long to work out my nimble fingers weren't that nimble and a simple yet effective knot would do!
I found this book of post it notes from TKMaxx in the sale for £2.50 - perfect for jotting down things that happen and they'll look good through the glass.
So, there you have it, my new years resolution for 2014 in full swing! I can't wait to add to it throughout the year and I'm 99% certain i'll keep up to it!
Hope you like this quick DIY post, I love using jars to display things in - have you done anything similar?
