DIY Decor: Quotes for an Inspiration Jar!

Saturday, January 25, 2014

Now I know this concept is nothing new ... these "inspiration jars" are popular everywhere, especially on Tumblr and Pinterest.  Not only do these jars make a nice decor piece, they also serve an inspirational purpose too.  While I am not going to make a tutorial on how I made mine, today I am posting some inspirational quotes that I included in my jar.  I am using my jar to inspire me to write in my journal on days when I want to write, but am not sure what to say.  Hope these inspire you as much as they inspire me!

That's it for now!  I may do another post when I restock my jar, depending on how fast I use up the prompts.

Cheers to inspiration, in whatever form you find it!
