Managing Mondays: Mason Jar Crafts

As I said last week, we have been very busy around here. Part of that business is due to some upcoming craft fairs we will be working. With that in mind I thought it would be fun to show off some of our wares.

These are just a couple of the mason jar luminaries we have been working on. the first one is a fall themed one. I stippled yellow, orange, and red paint in vaguely leaf like shapes and then attached a silk leaf using jute.

The next one I used paint pens to draw snowflakes and added a blue snowflake ribbon and blue stones around the candle.

I hope this gets you inspired. You might even want to try these with you kids.

I’m Back!

So we've been very busy around the Neary household the last few months, and I have neglected my blogging for far too long. I have really missed it. So anyway to bring you up to speed we have started school (already into the fourth week here), my wife has us signed up for at least three craft fairs in the coming weeks, and my daughter has a sleepover at church and I’m going camping with the boys all in the next few weeks. Wow, I feel tired just typing all that.

Anyway watch for more to come in the upcoming weeks. I have some great ideas to share (I recently discovered Pintrest!!!), so until then, I’ll see ya!
