I like this idea. Start the year with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. Then, on New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year. Good way to keep things in perspective.
Make this for all your concert, baseball & football tickets... rather than throw away, this is a great way to display! slit at the top to drop in more tickets as the years go on! Love this idea! Would be so much fun to look back on after so many years to see what you did.
