One of the bonus lessons on the Life Book course was to create a decorative jar. The idea is that the jar will fill up, over the course of the year, with little notes of achievement, celebration, happy moments, things to be grateful for so that at the conclusion of the year it becomes a celebratory record of all the positives from the year, however small each little recorded moment might be. The lesson was actually weeks ago but I only found time this weekend to finally embark on the project, having taken a while to even find a decent sized jar.
I collaged the jar with a book page, a paper bag and magazine clippings and finished it off with washi tape, glitter tape and a tag attached with gold elastic. My two younger sons also made jars of their own but didn’t want a photo of them shared. Now we just need to start filling our jars with notes of our awesomeness.
