Hi there little blog, I’ve missed you these past couple of days! I swear I’m not intentionally neglecting you! Long story short: Work is mad crazy. Pretty short, right? There is a lot of bad timing happening in my little work life with ends of contracts, planning our summit and generally trying to keep up with daily demand. It’s been a little crazy! But with crazy and hecticness comes drive-by weeks and luxurious weekends. Ok, they’re not very luxurious, but I welcome the relaxation and chance to catch up with my personal life.
Yesterday we had Girls Craft Night and made monogram pillows! I can’t wait to show them to you! They were super cute! But we’ll wait for the next blog post for that.
My sister recently got married and we’re having a party in August to celebrate her and her hubby! The theme is, what she calls, “White trash wedding” although I perfer to reference it as “Country Vintage Chic”… it has a better ring to it, no? 😉 I’ve been helping her with the planning and designing and have designed their invitation. I can’t wait to do a post about that as well! I think it’s going to be fabulous and we all have so many neat ideas!
One thing that my sister wants to incorperate, of course, is mason jars. Because that’s how awesome of a family we are: completely obsessed with mason jars. That is actually our next craft night but of course I can’t wait for another few weeks to go by! You already know my obession with painting mason jars, glitterizing them, what have you… basically just bedazziling the crap out of them! I’m getting a little tired of my current jar at work if you can believe that and since my job is “governmental/military” I thought, we need some MORE patrioticness in this cube!
Ok, so it’s more for Independence Day but at least it will go with the decor of the office!
I decided to do the “staining” glass this time…
What do you think? I finished off the jar with some glossy sealer and it looked much more stained, I’m loving it! I need to finish off the second jar and maybe stick some white and blue flowers in it. I’m pretty happy with the outcome 🙂
Until the pillow post!

Wow these are so cool! I definitely want to try this!
Thanks! They were a lot of fun to make! Messy at times, but fun! I’ll definitely be making more soon.
Wow – this is actually so helpful! I have a small collection of bottles and jars and old perfume bottles that I thought were to pretty to throw away and I keep telling myself that I’ll use them as vases or pencil pots or something but I still haven’t. And now I know what to do! Thank you!
No problem! There are so many different things you can do with them I’ve found: painting, staining, wrapping, mod-podging! Have fun and can’t wait to see your finished products!
Oh my gosh!! I have the same obsession and was thinking about staining them but didn’t know how to. This is awesome and I’m so doing this!!! Thanks;
Thanks! There is also a way you can make them waterproof and bake them after painting, definitely will be trying that as well. Definitely post pictures!! I’d love to see how they turn out!
