DIY Idea Jar.

My sisters, Shiloh & Hannah, came to see me a couple weeks ago and we had a little craft night where we put together some "idea jars". Our dear friend, Rachel, also joined in on the excitement. While Shiloh & Hannah went with the standard idea or bored jar, Rachel and I made our's into "date jars". I always seem to have a plethora of mason jars laying around as well as plenty of fabric scraps & other little crafty items, so we were pretty much set.

Supplies needed:
Mason jar.
Ribbons, bows, buttons, or anything else you want to use for decorating.
Papper scraps to jot down your ideas.

I don't know about any of you but I'm definitely guilty of wasting time, simply because I can't think of something to do. I think this is a great little motivator. So whenever I have an idea for a date or something else I really want to try, I just write it down and drop it in the jar. And, anytime I need a little push to do something I can just pick from those ideas. Plus, it looks pretty cute on my living room desk. 
Hope you find this helpful!
