Thankful Jar

I made this jar for myself and some friends back on New Years Day but it would work equally well in the fall as part of a Thanksgiving celebration. The jar is a plain canning jar bought at  Dollar Tree and the lid is spray painted.  Then I printed the label (from an internet site I've lost track of, they filled the jars with cookies) Then I printed Thankful cards.  You don't have to use the cards, you can use plain paper or other gratitude printables. There are a lot out there online! If you get a positive note or email...stick that in the jar too!
The idea is to put "good things" inside the jar all year. Things to be thankful for but also other things. Did you get a present you love? See a quotation that inspires you. Did you have great time with friends?  Jot it down and put it in the jar. At the end of the will have a jar full of great memories and things to reflect on.
