I’ve decided to share a quote or image every once in a while that describes where I am on my One Little Word journey.I found this one from Buzzfeed on Pinterest and it caught my eye. It’s early days and although I want to make lots of changes, I need to remember that it’s not a race to the finish line. I’ll get there with a little patience and I intend to enjoy finding balance. I plan to share my images on Pinterest too so if you want to check that out, my name is @Paparali over there too and the board is called One Little Word-2016.

Memory Jar 2

I, like many people I’m sure, often lose entire evenings to Pinterest. It is absolutely addictive. I’m pretty much a Pinterest creep because I never actually pin anything, I just look at other people’s boards. I’m now vowing to pin my own projects as well ideas belonging to other people  that I’d like to try out.

One of those Pinterest dedicated nights I noticed lots of memory jar pins and my brother and friend mentioned them too. I think it’s a really good idea to write down all of the good things that happen in a year and keep them in a jar to be opened on New Years Eve. It’s really easy to forget the small things that make you smile throughout the year. I had a lot of fun preparing my memory jar. I sprayed the lid gold because it’s gold, duh! Do you need a reason to spray things gold? I used a project life card which I believe is from the Sunshine Edition by Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman over at A Beautiful Mess but I could be wrong. I liked the idea of using this card because I felt it looks at all of the little moments individually . I then used number stamps to add ‘2014’ to the card and some washi tape to stick it onto the jar to finish it off. 

This year has started off well so I’ve already added some memories to it. I hope to see a lot more memories in it by the end of 2014.
