I have created a cute label that you can print, cut out and attach to a quart jar. Print it out on white, or if you print it out on colored paper, you can add a matching fabric lid or leave it plain, but tie a pretty bow around the lid. If you do leave it plain, be sure to cut a slit in the top of the canning lid, so that the little slips of paper can be inserted into the jar, without having to open the jar each time. (You know how you did when you wanted to save your coins as a kid and made yourself your own piggy bank out of a jar.)
This could be given to friends and family, sisters you Visit Teach, or just about anyone, and would fit right into the New Years celebration as a party favor that can be used all year long. To get the Label & blessing templates, go to my other blog: http://visitingteachingsurprise.blogspot.com
I have been thinking a lot about all the New Year's resolutions that are made and forgotten shortly after they are made. This is my way of creating a way to remember a years worth of blessings, tender mercies, happy moments, compliments, or anything good that happened, and be able to actually see what the Lord has done for you this past year, and not making a resolve, and failing. This is progress and will provide a lift. OH and be sure at the end of the year, to add your blessings, to your journal, so you will not forget them in years to come.
Enjoy! Katie G.
