Memories last forever...


The other day on Pinterest I saw this adorable idea to make a 2016 memory jar and I thought I would give it a go this year because in 2015, I made a load of memories but by the end of the year I had forgotten a lot of them.  Also for Christmas my friend got me a super cute notebook that she had customized so I have decided to make a memory jar and a photo book for 2016! 

To make the memory jar, I bought a Kilner jar and added some brightly coloured paper with double sided tape and wrote 2016 on it. I keep the jar next to my box of paper with some sharpies so I can just write something down and put it in. I also plan on adding cinema tickets or just anything else I want to. 
Already this year, I have got quite a few memories and one is when I created a blog header for Girl0bsessed. I really enjoyed making this so please feel free to contact me if you want me to make you one too!

During each month, I am going to collect photos from the month on my computer so then at the end I can print them off and stick them in my memory book. I kinda think this process is similar to when I shared a photo a month from 2016 here so I am looking forward to reliving the memories. At the end of the year I am hoping this will look really colorful and pretty so I am excited for that! 

Hope you enjoyed this post as it was quite chatty and maybe got some inspiration to make your own memory jar/book. 

Lots of Love

  2. I have done a similar idea that I saw on a tumblr post, I made a different snapchat account just for 2016 memories and each time I do something fun I send it to that snapchat. At the end of the year I'll open it up and see all the memories!

  3. This seems like a great way to record memories :)

  4. Love this idea, might have to borrow it! Thanks for sharing!
