Memory Jar

It was quite some time ago that I saw the Magical thinking jar online at the inchmark blog I loved the thought of saving the sweet little things your child tells you. I made my own jar last year unfortunately it was not for my daughter but my mom who I recently lost. See I have the worst memory and I was afraid I would forgot the everyday things we use to do. Sure I will always remember her calling to tell me to turn on the thanksgiving day parade or her making sure I ate my black-eyed peas on new year’s day but what about the everyday things we did I was afraid they would fade with time. So here it is I poured my heart into this jar until it was just right.

  • Merissa - I saw this pretty photo of yours on Flickr and when I came to visit your blog and read this post it touched my heart. This is such an amazing idea. I love how you kept the everyday things that you and your mom did as notes written in this wonderful jar. Beautiful!

  • joystudio - Love this Rachel. I made some of these as well, same reason. 😉
