Soooooo, I’m finally getting my memory-jar project up and running! When I get a great idea, I feel this urge to “do it all NOW” because I am excitedly filled with creative energy. I’ll have to be patient with this one as MOH Sweet Pea and I are recycling food jars that we use in the upcoming months. Guess it’s a good thing I consume a lot of salsa!
However, because I just couldn’t help myself, I went and bought a few jars from a thrift store for about $0.99 a piece and started to fill them up.
Once they are finished, I will cover the lids with pages from classic love stories and our favorite novels. A quick trip to Half Price Books (which was conveniently next door to the thrift store) proved very useful as I grabbed copies that had all the good passages underlined already.
The memory items that are awaiting a jar to fill have been bagged into categories and placed in a box. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of stuff we found and have discovered that it doesn’t take much to fill a jar.
Waffle and I have even decided to keep this an ongoing project past the wedding and want to find a place to display some of them in our home. We won’t keep every single memento that passes our way, but just the very special ones.
