Fun Friday – Good Job Jar!
The Good Job Jar is such an awesome concept. I’ve used it for years and years and then Tricia jazzed it up for us by adding coupons! My boys fell in love with the coupons and have a hard time choosing anything else! As my boys got older they started asking me for some “OLDER” coupons. One day my son Cale, asked me if I could make some teenager coupons. Thus our second set of Good Job Jar Coupons were born. At one point I asked our followers for suggestions of items to put on them and received some great feedback. I even promised them I would choose one person to receive a set, of which I have yet to fulfill.
My life got slammed and I forgot all about them, leaving them half finished. After hearing from Jenny Spilker on our facebook page about wondering what a Good Job Jar was, it reminded me that we never actually had a post describing and explaining the concept behind it. Thanks Jenny for reminding me of my unfinished project! (Big Smile Inserted Here)
Don’t we all have a number of those? 🙂
Rather than use lots and lots of words to describe the concept, I thought I would make a video instead, of which we haven’t had one for a long time either. Wow, so many continuances in one post, I am feeling kind of proud! (LOL!) Click on the video to hear just exactly what our GOOD JOB JAR is all about.
Isn’t that such a great idea? In conjunction with this wonderful idea we have a special celebration just for our fans. (Good thing you are checking our blog regularly, huh?) So here’s our first contest that we are having after a LONG LONG dry spell. I am looking to fill up 12 more cards for the Teenager Set. Give us your suggestions in the comment box. If you want to see what our coupons look like, just click on one of the pictures below for a closer view. I will choose 12 individual suggestions that I like the most and add them to our set. Everybody who contributes an idea, your name will be put into a hat and 2 winners will be drawn out. Each winner will receive either a Good Job Jar Coupon Set for Younger Children or a Good Job Jar Coupon set for Teenagers, laminated, cut out and sent to you by me!!!!
Here is the link that talks about the I Will Go and Do Tokens I used in my video: Tokens

Imagine, having the work done for you!
No UNFINISHED project on this one!!!!
You have until Saturday, November 20th, at midnight to input your suggestions. If you think someone else would like this great prize, then lead them to our blog to enter our contest. The more the merrier! The Winners will be posted Sunday Evening, November 21st. For the 3 people who were so fantastic at getting in your suggestions on time, before I extended the contest, you earned a Good Job Jar Coupon that says, “Congratulations! This coupon is good for your name being put into the drawing a second time! Way to be diligent and on time.” (That’s for Amy, Jessica, & Alisa)
