   When you were born, you cried and everybody else was happy. The only question that matters is this - when you die, will you be happy when everybody else is crying?

Memory Jar by Regina Sokas

Currently, I am participating in a 30-day creativity challenge from #CreativeSprint for the month of April 2016. I met a fellow sprinter, Regina Sokas, who posted this creative on April 5th:
She made this memory jar from small items of her mother's that were in a drawer and included a small photograph of her mother at the top of the jar.
This is a perfect example of Legacy and Memory making that doesn't require you to be a Rembrandt or Picasso to create.

Check out Ms. Sokas blog article at Found Patrick.

ceramic jar with lid
small items
acrylic paint (optional)
jewelry glue, heavy duty ModPodge or Gem-Tac by Beacon (personal favorite - I recommend these over hot glue)

A great tutorial using a glass jar: Glass Marble Mosaic Vase
The glass makes it a little more slippery in this tutorial, but they use grout for a more finished look but it's not necessary.
