Jordan watches what I do very closely. After seeing me have such fun with my new Papertrey dies, she wanted in on the action.
After scouring the trash for some good finds.....in this case an empty pickle jar, she decided to paint and decorate some jars for her art markers, etc.
She made her very own versions of flower doodads to attach to her painted jar.
I think these pink and green versions are super duper cute, don't you? She used the Beautiful Blooms II stamp set and coordinating Beautiful Blooms II Die Collection. Then she needed flower stems so I showed her how to make ric rac stems out of felt using Papertrey's Rickrack Border Die.She had so much fun, she needed more containers to embellish. All of sudden, she had an urge for canned fruit. So we opened two cans of peaches so that she could use the cans for me art pencils and markers. Give the girl some crafty stuff and she's all set!!! I highly encourage you to let your kids dig into your supplies. It's great fun for them and it makes you feel good to see them be creative.
Afterwards, we had our first Cranberry Limeade Cooler. Yummo!! You can find the recipe by scrolling down in my recipe section...just click the label at the end of the post.
And another good use for jars? I've been using them to store food items instead of Tupperware, etc. I love my little jars for everything, they're just so cute.
This little pint jar is full of limes that we keep on hand for our refreshing drinks.
Have a great day everyone!! We got a big rain storm and 1" hail this morning.
