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!

    xoxo Morning

  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 :)

All comments I receive are cherished for many hours after reading them. Thank you for taking the time to type something to me.

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)

This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...

Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…

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…
