Journaling Jar Challenge


example by Shannalamb of Two Peas in a Bucket


I sent a bunch of links like this several years ago to our Scrapperschallenge loop so I think it is time to do so again! The interest in making journaling jars as gifts or conversation jars for the supper table is popular to do for holidays as gifts. Cut and paste the questions to a word document and make sure each one has enough space below it so you can cut the questions into seperate strips with your paper trimmer. Alter a mason jar or a cookie jar to put the slips into. Decorate and gift it. Make one for your own family at the same time.

Make one just for yourself instead of a whole 'scrapbook about me'. Just to answer daily like a guided diary

and my fave with a matching journal for noting the replies you want to save

Hi Rockster

I think this is a great idea. Thanks for the links to all the journaling prompts. I looked at some of them, and boy, what a flood of memories. I thought about things from my childhood that I hadn't thought about in ages. I just might have to make myself a jar and journal!

I used the journaling jar concept for my Book of Me. Instead of journaling prompts, I filled it with layout prompts. I try to do one layout a week to add to my BOM. ~Pam
