Memories...

So awhile back I saw this idea over here and filed it away for future use.  Fast forward to Christmas 2010 and enter gift for Grandma Jean.  I picked up a jar at Hobby Lobby and got to work on decorating it.  Then I had Mike and the girls help me with memories of her.  After printing them out on cardstock, I rolled them up and tied them with ribbon.  The jar was quite a bit bigger than I had intended so I added some shredded bag filler so it didn't look quite so empty.  Believe it or not there are A LOT of slips of paper in there! 


Our week is off to a great start here.  The girls are so excited for Saturday and that makes me excited!  I have a long day today, but then it's smooth sailing the rest of the week!  Thanks for coming by today and I'll see you tomorrow!
