So its mid January, I'm all over the shop and its only the start of the year! Honest to god, theres no hope for me. But let us ignore that, as you all love me really (well I'd like to hope!). Today I want to tell you about a nice little project anyone can do as a pick me up during the year. I robbed this idea from Yaz of GlitterMamaWishes.
2014 is a new year, so why not try to make it a happy one? This is a really simple idea. Get some pieces of paper, just little bits, and when something good happens to you write it down and pop it into a jar. Come new years eve or day you will have a full years worth of happy things that have filled your jar, open them up and see your year! It a lovely little pick me up and a push to make the next year just as happy. Thats it!
You can decorate your jar whatever way you like to make it extra special and something lovely to look at too. I've decorated it with my first ever Glossy Box ribbon and also a gilttery silver ribbon that I took off one of my goodie bags from the Christmas blogger dinner hosted by Lisa from PinkSugar, they make me happy and remind me of the surprise I got in the post and the lovely night I had with all the blogger girls.
If your stuck for ideas don't be, its your jar and theres no right or wrong thing that you can throw in. I have a note about my amazing sale buys as I get so so happy when I get a bargain! I have a little note about Stephen as he is really just what makes my world go round (Yeah soppy, sorry) and even a really nice weekend I had recently being with my friends just hanging out. I know all these little notes will make me smile when I read them again at the end of the year.
I went on a search to find nice coloured paper to brighten up my jar, I found a full note pad of them for €2 in Tiger the other day and the jar itself was from IKEA for €1.50. Now theres a cheap and cheerful project for the year! As always I hope everyone is having a fab week and remember, be happy :) x
