Altered Jar

When I got my CropADile Big Bite from HSN, it came with a lot of eyelets and grommets. I decided to alter a jar to hold them all.


This is either a large relish jar or a small pickle jar. I used My Mind's Eye papers, a metal rimmed tag, ribbon, felt ribbon, Prima Sprites, plus a gorgeous Making Memories brad. I really like red and turquoise together, so I love the way this turned out.

I cut a flower with my Coluzzle from another sheet of My Mind's Eye paper for the lid. I love when organization is functional AND pretty!

My oldest did great with her school choir yesterday! The choir could have finished I, II, or III, and they did finish "I", which means that they will compete again at a state level!! Very impressive! I have to admit, they were awesome!

Here's Emily in her choir robe! Doesn't she look cute? Have a great Sunday! Thanks for all of the Princess votes! If you haven't had a chance to vote for Princess yet, please visit yesterday's post and give her your votes! Thank you so much!! Thanks for stopping by!
