I've had the itch to create lately.  And I may or may not have stayed up till midnight last night.  Here are a few finished products.
My mind is running wild with the possibilities my new friend burlap and I will soon create.
Just looking at this memory jar makes me cry happy tears.  I love the quote, "Preserve your memories, seal them up well.  What you forget, you can never retell..."
Each item in my jar tells a story, one I never want to forget.  I couldn't stand the thought of having them tucked away somewhere in a box to be lost and forgotten.  I'm hopeful someday my kids will want me to take it off the shelf and share it with them.
I also can't wait to make one for my boys.  Can you imagine...a shelf full of different styles and sizes of jars...all full of memories.

I love the memory jar idea! That's what stinks about scrapbooks, books of remembrance, etc....they sit on shelves and don't get the attention they deserve.

It was fun to talk to you for a minute yesterday! I think your burlap banner is adorable, and I love that you made it all one piece rather than cutting single triangles. And your Jar, what a great idea! I love it! I don't know if I could fit all my 'stuff' into a jar tho. :)
