Make It Yourself Monday : 2013 Memory Jar
How many of you caught yourself saying, "Where did 2012 go?!" at the end of last year?
I know I did.
It seems like time moves by so quickly, and special little moments are often forgotten over the years.
I, for one, hate forgetting special memories. So much so that I've been keeping a journal since I was 14.
Yes, I'm that nerd who sits down at the end of the day and writes out my thoughts and any notable things that happened throughout the day.
So for those of you who can relate to my memory-loss phobia, this project is for you!
It's pretty simple. The idea is to keep a jar full of jotted-down memories.
You add to it throughout the year.
And it is so easy. It's almost laughable that I'm putting this tutorial together.
But I thought I'd share the idea and shoot some photos of my finished product.
I bought my paint pen for $1.50 from a local craft shop.
It washes off with nail polish remover. Which worked out in my favor when I failed at my first two drawings (ha!).
For those of you using paint pens for the first time, I recommend getting a test glass to practice on.
See if your pen comes off with nail polish remover, rubbing alcohol, etc. It's nice to know just in case of a mess-up!
