this can be a service project, gift for charity, gift for family or friend...

Spread a little joy around you. A JOY JAR, which holds a daily inspirational message, will keep giving and giving!

Type 365 or 31 inspirational messages, depending on if you want your JOY JAR to last for a full year or a full month. These can be Scripture verses, inspirational thoughts, or smile provokers. You can find these on inspirational calendars, topical books, joke books, or make up your own. Print these on different colored sheets of paper, then cut into strips. Fold each strip into a small piece with the message inside. Place in a decorated glass jar. Attach a note that says:

It is hoped this JOY JAR will help you start each day with a spiritual boost, and inspirational thought, or a smile. As the year/month progresses, may your days be bright and full of JOY.

Give this to secret pals, shut-ins, special friends, or anyone you can use a boost each day.

*I love this idea... I am reposting this from my post in June of 2009...  What a great idea this is and so inspirational and uplifting!!!

SO MUCH of what I create is inspired by what Paulette at Create with TLC shares on her blog or in her store...  Today is her birthday!  PLEASE go to see her at one of corners in the big WWW and send love and birthday greetings!




Floral Bookmark Printables

Paulette at Create with TLC has a week long challenge to use her images and be the first to submit them to her and get a free set from her store.  I used a floral image as well as wordart...  To use these, click to save to your own computer and print when you need a bookmark...

I love reading and have a hard time making time for it...but when I do I enjoy a nice bookmark to save my place...  KEEP CALM AND READ ON ...

Happy Spring,

St Patrick's Day Stationery Printable

Here is another St. Patrick's Day printable.
I am going to use the wordart seal as the seal to the back of the notecard and the small shamrock seal as an element inside of the card attached with a glue dot and then write my letter around it.

Word art is from Paulette at Create with TLC.

Template and Layout is by myself.

Shamrock fill is from the www.

Good ole fashioned letter writing has taken a backseat to the technology world.  I really believe a hand written note of thanks, greeting, invitation, etc is appreciated and personal.  Let's bring back the hand written notes!
