Memory Jar

This afternoon I asked every one if they would participate in filling up this glass jar during the course of the year. It will be kept in the kitchen with pen and paper close to hand for the four of us, or anyone who visits, to jot down things that happen during the year which we would like to remember for a specific reason.
Then at the end of December we'll open it up and read them all.


S has put the first one in. I'm so curious to read what it is!

What a lovely idea. I don't think I'd be able to resist having a little peek.

No peeking now!
Love this idea Lisa. :0)

Louise said...

you do have some great ideas! This is lovely but I'd have to have something lockable, I wouldn't be able to resist peeking!

Poppy said...

I would be no good at this, I would have to have a look.

Lisa, that's such a great idea! Wish I'd have thought of it when my three were younger. We have lots of great memories from holidays and such like but there are probably even more things we've forgotten. It's a brilliant way to have a review of the year too!

Do you think you will be able to avoid temptation all year Lisa?!!! This is a wonderful idea. Have a wonderful 2012! x

Happy New Year Lisa to you all!

What a fab idea, although I would be chomping at the bit to read what people have put in there! lol.

It should be an interesting read at the end of the year.

Wonderful idea - but what temptation to have a peek. Let's hope it is filled with happy memories.

Lovely idea, I don't think I'd be able to wait a whole year though!

Kathy said...

That's so sweet! I would have peeked already!

I've not only stolen that idea, I have sent it on to a few other people too (fully owning up that it wasn't my idea!)
Looking forward to hearing what gets recorded in a year's time,
Ellen

What a wonderful idea! I too would be taking a peek but if it was sealed I wouldn't - hmmm now there's an idea.
Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you and your family Lisa. Placing your memories of 2012 in a jar is a nice idea. I'm doing something along similar lines with things I want to achieve in 2012! x
