Here's The Perfect Way To Welcome 2017

A rememberlutions jar is a fantastic alternative (or addition!) to New Year's resolutions.

Hello pals! Welcome to the tail end of the year. (AT LONG LAST.) A couple of years ago, we made a project that we called "rememberlutions jars."

The idea behind the jars is simple: instead of (or in addition to) making New Year's resolutions that might stress you out or make you feel like a failure, keep a record of all the things you're actually proud of throughout the year.

Write down your accomplishments or things that made you feel good, no matter how small, and put 'em in the jar as they occur. At the end of the year, read through all your slips of paper, and see how far you've come.

You can decorate your jar however you want, whether it's with photos of things you love...

Paint pens...

Extremely specific stamps...

Or a truly creepy amount of googly eyes.

You can even make a party of it!

We wanted to update the project for the upcoming year, and so here are some variations.

You could make a themed jar, like one meant to inspire you to travel.

You could make a jar for your whole family.

Or you could make one as a gift for someone else, like your sister or best friend.

Or just stick to making one for yourself — chances are, you could use a reminder of how rad you are.

So grab a jar (or three) and some craft supplies.

And get pumped for 2017.

If you make a rememberlutions jar of your own, show us a picture!

Special thanks to Tracy Clayton for conceiving the original project, and to Alessia Santoro for helping make it happen.
