DIY Happy Jar

After studying the law of attraction (google it if you're not sure) I've been trying to find inner peace and embracing a new zen way of life. To make sure I am constantly being the best person I can be, I like to make little, in-expensive things that will keep me inspired and help me stay happy. That's where I came up with the idea of a 'happy jar', as simple as it sounds, just a jar full of items that will spark happiness and pick me up when I'm feeling sad.

My happy place is definitely the sea so I've gone for a theme of the seaside with inspirational quotes written on pebbles amongst pretty shells. It's completely up to you what you want your jar to be full of though, you might choose dried flowers or past tickets from events etc. 
I was inspired by the idea of writing quotes on pebbles after finding a pebble in a little trinket shop with the word "zen" written over it. I bought a couple there and then as I loved the cute messages on them, but have since been to my local beach to customise my own. You could even carry a certain pebble around with you as a lucky charm with the message you are needing to get you through that particular day.

Lots of love,
