I had two pieces of canvas art lying around that weren’t being used and couldn’t be returned so I decided to repurpose them.  This is what I did with the first one.

DIY: The BEST Way to Store Your Ribbon


Back when I first started my crafting venture I made hair bows.  And of course with making hair bows comes ribbon…lots of it.  And then there’s the storage of this ribbon.  I’ve seen several techniques, but this way seems best to me so I’ll share with you how I do it.

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.
