If you find yourself lacking motivation and getting critical of yourself, the pencil shaving jar is a little reminder of how much effort you put into your work.

Designer Craighton Berman fused a pencil sharpener on the lid of a mason jar to create this nifty inspirational shaving jar. Berman use to teach a sketching class, and noticed that although his students were showing effort, there were not a lot of results. The outcome led to a jar which indirectly keeps track of all your accomplishments as a result of long day and hard work. Once the jar is filled up with shavings, you can use it a reference and inspiration to remind yourself of how far a little effort can take you.

This is perfect for any artist, writer, illustrator or anyone else that requires a pencil sharpener and a kick of motivation.
