While I was attempting to clean out one of my drawers the other day, I came across money. Lots of money. Problem? It was all in different currencies, none of them Canadian!
Still left over from my days as a Flight Attendant, 10 years later I finally decided it would be fun to have this “on show”. So I dragged out some Mason Jars I bought this summer, the labels that came with them, some Chalkboard paint I found at Michael’s Craft Store, and got to work. (Remember when I wrote the post about Mason Jars? I quickly bought some afterwards, with every intention to make jam, I bought the strawberries and everything…. ya, never happened. I found some other reasons for them instead – keep reading!)
Grab the Chalk….
What do you think? Pretty easy I tell ya! And the kids were impressed!
My other uses for my Mason Jars this summer:
Cutlery Holders/Water Glasses. An easy and cheery way to set the picnic table for a casual dinner party.
Sugar Cube Storage. I love this little jar for my sugar cubes. Right by the tea (which I drink a lot of now, since I’ve been banned from caffeine by my doctor… wait. Does that include chocolate?! Woops.)
And I made a pin cushion! This was inspired by one of the photos I posted on my Mason Jar post… very different from the photo, but I loved the concept, so I grabbed some odds and ends we had around here, and “whipped” this up!
