Journal Jars for my Sisters

Every summer I go to Wisconsin to a Quilt Retreat with my sisters for a long weekend.  Although I have made a few quilts, I prefer to scrapbook while there!  (There are usually 3 or 4 of us scrappers among the quilters!)  Each year I take a little gift for my sisters and these journal  jars are what I made for them last year.  The jar contains journal prompts about their childhood, dating, married life, being a parent, and being a grandparent.  Each day they are to take out one prompt and write in their journal.  Eventually the books are to be handed down to their grandchildren, which they all 3 have now by the way!  I enjoyed making the jars and journals for them and I think they all really liked them!  (Now I just hope they are using them!)
