Goals and Happy 2016

As we draw to the end of the year we are all really excited to greet 2016 and hope it will bring happiness for everyone!!

I read about these two ideas somewhere and really loved them. What a great way it would be to start the New Year.So thought of sharing it on my blog.

On New Year’s Eve, you can fill in a jar with 10 goals-good things you want to have happen. In a year from now, you can empty it and see what was achieved!

Since the jars would be kept for a whole year I came up with the idea...why not decorate them up in a creative way!

Materials I used are:
Any Empty glass bottles you can recycle.
Scrapbook Paper.
Ribbons.
Permanent glue.
Acrylic paints
Scissors.
Coloured papers for notes.
Loom bands to keep notes in place.










 











I just cut out various scrapbook papers and wrapped them around the jars with permanent glue. Used some ribbons here and there. Thought of using Acrylic paint to paint the covers but got lazy and decided it still looked fine without it :)
These are my kids Diya and Hiya's goals for 2016 :) As for me like my daughter Diya I would like to travel to a place I have never been before, stay positive and let me decide the other eight  while you share with me what goals have you set for 2016.
Come this January and won’t it be great to start off with another empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen to you throughout the year? I can just imagine when I open and empty it Next New Year’s Eve, how I would smile reading what awesome stuff happened and feel happy :)
Wish you all a very Happy and Blessed  2016 !!

  6. A nice idea :)
    Think my goals are to tidy up a bit all over the house, fulfill some projects and create an overview of all the plants in the garden ...

  16. This reminds me of a story I heard years ago. A very poor farming family going through rough times in which mom covered a shoebox with paper and made a slot in it. Whenever something special or happy happened, a family member would write it down on a slip of paper and pop it in the box. On Thanksgiving, they opened the box and read through the events for "dessert".

    Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/01/nosey-cat-yep.html. I hope your jar overflows in 2016!

  21. I save small jars and reuse them for lots of things. You just never know when a glass or plastic container might come in handy. Yours turned out cute. - Margy

  22. They are great ideas! My Mom did a similar post but didn't show her jars...perhaps I should hold her feet to the fire. :-)
