Happy Jar for 2014

2 posts in 1 day!? Don't panic it's not a new year's resolution ! I saw the idea for this on a few posts on FB and thought what a good idea.

You take an empty jar and over the year anything nice that happens you make a little note and put it in your jar, then on 31st December you empty your jar and see what happy things happened to you over the year. Wasn't sure what size jar to use lol, but guess what - something happy happened for me today so there is already a little note in there!

Of course I couldn't have just a plain jar so I've made a tag using Heartfelt Creations Burnished Keys stamp and die - because the wording and the key shapes seemed really appropriate. Coloured with pens and finished with Wink of Stella and a few gems. Why don't you have a go too, we can tend to forget the little nice things that make us smile so here's hoping this will remind me how lucky I am when I hit the potholes in life's road that are bound to come along too. Happy New Year x
