Wedding Centerpiece: Reusable Mason Jar Cover – Behind the Scenes


A super awesome person had a birthday a month ago and for it I told her to pick a color.  She chose purple, and this is what I came up with.  I thought it would make an awesome centerpiece for for a wedding and it’s especially handy since the flowers and the wrap can be removed.

How I Used My Decorated Mason Jar


I saw a meme circulating through Facebook at the beginning of the year about writing positive things down on a piece of paper and putting it in a jar.  Then at the end of the year, you read everything and it shows you just how great the year really was.  I thought it was a cute idea, but I already have a glass half full type of attitude so I shared it and went on about my way.

A few weeks later I’m approached by a friend who saw this same meme and decided to put a spin on it.  She’s making a basket for someone and in it she wanted to put a mason jar filled with nice things about her friend from all of her friend’s friends.  Get it?  Anyway, she asked me to decorate her jar (pictures at the end of the post).  I was pretty darn pleased with it and my friend was in love.   Her plan is to get pieces of scrapbook paper and write on the blank side.  After it’s folded, the pretty side will make the jar super colorful (but, knowing her she will settle on all black).  I had so much fun making this that I decided to do one for myself.  Watch the VIDEO on how I did it on my YOUTUBE channel, then come on back here.  Go on now.

Okay.

Juicing Once Again


20140127_180835[1]

 

So I’ve done a tad bit more juicing since my first post, and I thought I’d share some more of my thoughts.

  • Raspberries don’t produce as much juice as I thought.
  • Blueberries produce more juice than I thought.
  • Pineapple and orange is still amazing.
  • Eventually I will stop picking up a nectarine when I want a peach.
  • Fizz is still annoying.
  • Adding water makes it so much better.

I was told to keep it simple, so I will.  I’m still working up the courage to try vegetables.  Maybe even vegetables only.  Eek!  How do you like juicing and what are some of your favorite recipes?
