over at Sisterhood of Scrap to share ideas re: inspiration jars!
Here is one I made back in January 2008 with the Chocolate Chalet Kit from Scrapbooker's Club House.
It is a taaaall slender plastic jar (which had contained Christmas popcorn from Shopper's Drug Mart) with a screw on metal top. I filled it w/ paper strips that carry idea starters for scrapbook page themes, journaling, cards and ways of approaching the craft. It says "ideas" down one side. It's a LOT of fun to have handy!
