In a couple of weeks we are going to start our checks and balances of the year. As we look forward to the new year, I am going to resolve that money will. It be a reason why my dreams did not come true. To help myself with a Dream Savings Jar DIY that should also keep me motivated. I am choosing one Dream and focusing on it more than the rest on my list.
Deam Savings Jar DIY
To make the jar I am choosing a a plan for the to guide my plan. That is because I want to go on a trip to Iceland with my family. Here is how you can make this easy and convenient savings jar
- Using the glue gun fix the plane to the lid

The BFG Inspiration
What prompted me to get working proactively on doing something towards my dreams is Disney’s movie The BFG. I was inspired by the care for our dreams by the giant. We should follow his example and do the same, right?
About the BFG
Good news! Not only can we get creative to help make true our dreams, we can enjoy the beautiful story of The BFG at home!
The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams.
Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows. But Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Says Spielberg, “It’s a story about friendship, it’s a story about loyalty and protecting your friends and it’s a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems.” Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.
Isn’t it a wonderful story to watch with the family over and over again at home? Oh, and a great stocking stuffer too!
