Can the Holder of Relish ever look good again?
I don`t promise this to be the most interesting post I have ever spit out, but here are some pics of something I tried awhile back.
Wash them good. The labels come off pretty well if you soak them in hot soapy water and rub off with a scouring pad.
It`s nice to have ready labels like these, but you can easily cut and paste label-like things that you find that have character, from all over.
Prime lids, spray paint them any color. Black worked well in my opinion.
I even did a few of the lids with chalkboard paint. I though this would make a fun gift. Then you could write the person`s name on the lid and fill it with chocolate or candy or whatever.
Yes, I know chocolate is candy- I just think it`s in a class of it`s own.
This was my favorite jar. I wish I had a better picture of it. I didn`t really need these jars- so I gave them to my sisters.
I loved the simplicity of this one. It holds chalk.
Cute cork holders.
A great gift and a handmade one at that. 🙂
I have painting to do in the basement and it`s almost too dirty to take the girls down with me. But I have to. I have been dreading this since last night.If a certain someone (me) would just sweep her basement this wouldn`t be so dreaded.
I was at a ladies seminar this week with God as our Father as the theme. I wish I had HOURS to try and share all the thoughts running through my brain. I feel like I learned so much and especially feeling more in touch with the Holy Spirit.
All Laila will eat is bananas. Do I keep buying the biggest bunches they sell and be okay with this? Hmm.
And with those thoughts I will leave you. Love, Jenny
Today`s SSS (Super Simple Saver) comes from SHEL-LY, with some great ones!
My close friend since birth- our moms went to Lamaze together.:)
Here we go:
“I buy a large bottle of fabric softener dump half of it out and refill container with water and use it just like you would normally. When its empty I pour in the other half I have set aside and fill the rest with water. It’s like 2 for the price of one!”
“Another one I was just thinking about the other day. When my kids are little and I need babyfood for them, I make a pot of mixed veggies or whatever and then when they are soft I put it in the blender till its smooth. Next, I put them into an ice tray and freeze it into little cube sizes. Then you can put them into little baggies or a container and getout one little serving at a time. So easy if you dont have any “babyfood” on hand. By the way I got this idea from my mom.”
