thank you so much! thinking of writing inspirational quotes and filling a jar with them to keep on my nightstand. Also, if you plan on keeping these outside/in your garden, or just want to make them last longer/give them a bit of shine, you could also add a coat or two of mod podge. :)

This is nice. You could even paint them and leave them in public places for people to find. Well done.

To make them waterproof you could use a clear coat or some beeswax :) wouldn't change to look at all, may even give it a bit of shine.
