Almost a New Year - Open up the Smiles

It is almost time to say good-bye to 2013 and what a year it has been.  My family just arrived home form an amazing trip to Disney World and now we will celebrate Christmas and the New Year with our family tonight.
Before we head out we will be opening up our smile jar and looking back and all the things that brought us joy over the year. It started out just like this....

But now it is overfilled with joy to send us smiling into 2014. I for one am ready for a new year and wish each of you a Happy New Year as well. 

I so look forward to returning to crafting and sharing my projects with you.


  1. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time at Disney, and now you get to celebrate 2 holidays! How fun. I think I have an idea what your Smile jar might be about, but I'd like to know more. Do you put in past events throughout 2013 that made you smile? Please do tell.

    1. That is 100% correct. We placed little slips of paper in there during the year and on each slip was something that made us smile.

  2. that is where I want to go someday. glad yours was so fun. have a happy new year. hugs

  3. Happy new year to you! I love smile jars and I threaten to do one every year, but never do. Thanks to you, I think today is the day!!!

  4. Happy New Year to you! Glad to hear that you had a great time!
    Hugs Gerda

  5. I sure do like this jar idea. Hoping it brought lots of smiles.
