give away and craft...double whammy!

ok so ya'll know i've had a crappy couple of months with nausea and the loss of our peanut. well today i'm feeling better and...wait for it...i did a craft!

i'm into mason jars...they are my drinking glasses, vases, and of course, crafternoon projects. i saw this pin cushion jar project on mom4life blog and thought it was the cutest. and easy-shmeasy. plus, hello! pretty organization.

here is my version:

this literally took me 2.5 minutes even when you count my bathroom break.

it's time for you guys to get obsessed with them as well. but, i don't have any mason jars and my husband told me i couldn't spend any more money on craft supplies, you say? well now's your chance, players. i'm giving away a case of them...woo woo! leave a comment with your name and email telling me what you'd do with your jars and BAM, you're entered. although i think your beanie baby collecting is nerdy emily, you can preserve each one of them in a jar if you win. it'll be like a museum. mmm, fun!

and side note, thanks for all your prayers and sweet comments on my last post. i am starting to feel less nauseous and the hormones are slowing down. finally!

    I think I might make your craft! I would maybe sew more if I had a nifty place to store things!

    I love the craft! So cute :) I think I would decoupage mine with pretty tissue paper. They can be used as vases or for candles!

  4. I would use mine as drinking glasses. I am trying to rid myself of most plastic. If I the kids dropped one, it wouldn't be the end of the world!

  7. I saw you commented on a mutual friend's blog, so I checked out your blog (I'm in medical school so what better way to prepare for becoming a doctor than read blogs). I've seen yall at church before as well. (wow hope that doesn't sound like I stalk you) haha

    I would make home made jam and jelly! I also need some jars to keep rubber bands and bobby pins in the bathroom so my husband will quit griping about them on the counter. I would dress them up to match our bathroom :)

  11. Beanie babies. . . hmmm. Have you ever seen the TV show Reba? I am watching reruns these days. If you haven't seen the show, sorry this won't make any sense. But barbara jean collects beanie babies, so what I really want to know does Emily pile them up on the bed or have special dinners to celebrate buying new ones. Oh true LOL right now!

    I am glad you are starting to feel better!

    So I thought of you/well what you said about shorts when I went to walmart the other day (is that weird. . . probably), but anyway they had ONE pair of the jean shorts. ONE PAIR. Wrong size. Not gonna lie, a little bummed.

  12. hmmm. I might make one of those, then can some salsa with the rest!

    somewhat on the same subject...have you seen the large mason jar drink dispenser at Pottery Barn? I LOVE it! I too share your love for mason jars.

  13. TOO cute. Don't send me your jars, though, I'm on my way to Fleet Farm tomorrow to buy a couple cases (they're on special). I'll tell you why: we discovered a patch of wild blackberries on the Back 40--JAM!!!

  15. what else do you do with mason jars, but fill each one with layers of sugar, flour & choco chips... tie a ribbon around it with a cute recipe tag that says "just add eggs".

    hahaha I KID!!!! don't throw me in the drawing... just wanted to make you laugh :)
