DIY: Cherishings Jar

Hello there darlings. :) Today I am going to do something I don't normally do - a DIY. I'm not a hands on crafty person, but I really felt like I should do this. You'll definitely receive a positive boost if you do this craft. So let's get started! :)

Today we will be making a cherishings jar. I made mine way back in August and it's really helped me realize how amazing life can truly be - especially if you look at the little things.

You will need:

+ A jar/container to hold your cherishings (I used an old plastic orange juice bottle).
+ A pen/pencil/marker/whatever you want to use to write your cherishings.
+ Scissors
+ Paper

(and if you'd like to decorate your jar get some duct tape or ribbon)

Step 1. If you'd like, decorate your cherishings jar. Make it look really happy and creatively awesome, so that it fits your personal needs.

Step 2. Write down a few things you cherish. Nothing is too big or too small. A list of ten evenly spaced items should work, to start off your jar. :)

Step 3. Cut, fold, and place your cherishings in your jar. :)

Step 4. Marvel at your work. ;)

Step 5. Try to put more cherishings in your jar everyday.

Now whenever you feel down, just dump out your cherishings and read through them for a little reminder of the good things in life.

I hope you enjoyed this little craft. Let me know in the comments if you did this, and/or what you cherish. :)

What do you cherish?

Thanks for reading!

  3. What a great idea! I have to try this:)

  5. I did this last year, and going through it on New Years Eve was amazing. I also went to it every time I was upset/feeling down and it made me smile every time.
    I'll be doing a cherishings jar again this year! It's a great idea :)

  6. I love this idea, and I also love to create memory jars for the year and then go back and read them on the 31st. It's fun to see how you've grown and stuff.
    I've never seen this idea, but I might do it this year :)

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.

Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
