The Little Jar Of Happiness…

13 Jan

What is this you see? A post on a Monday?

(Well sort of, I wrote this yesterday. πŸ˜‰ )

Being the hipster (not) I am, I decided to do another jar related activity, since the glitter jars are no longer with me. (Mum chucked them out. Don’t think she got why I put purple glittery water into an old jam jar. But some people have no imagination I guess. πŸ˜‰ ) A while ago I saw on We Heart It or Tumblr that people were making a jar and every time something made you feel good in life you wrote it on a piece of paper and put it into the jar of happiness, which is the name I have given it.

In no way is this my idea, but I did decide to take photographs of how I prettied my jar because why not, you might want to know? (You all answer yes enthusiastically.)

What I Used…


So to make my jar look a lot nicer and less food jar like, I used these ribbon strips that are already gluey are the back so you just have to cut off the length you want. I get it from Hobby Craft for a few pounds and have used it lots of times before to ‘pretty’ bits and bobs up for my room. Then to write the happy things on, I am just using some smallish post it notes in pretty colours like greens, blues and pinks.


I decided to do this because I want to be more positive and happier this year, so I thought this would be a good idea so I can see that good things that have made me feel good have happened. Hopefully at the end of the year it will be filled to the brim and I’ll pour them all out and see my year in post it note form.


Here is the finished jar that I have accessorized with spots and pastels. If you are joining the jar of happiness bandwagon please let me know and link me up to your blog links.

I know this post is a bit pants but I want to become a lot more regular when it comes with my posting.

See you all soon,
