I crafted today. Well, ok that’s probably overstating. I bought things and arranged it. You see the picture. I hit this out of the park. I mean for my first try. I saw the jar gift ideas on Pinterest and I loved them to bits, so I decided that was the thing I needed to do for my daughter’s preschool teachers.
Before you go much further- small note. If you stumbled on this after searching for craft kind of things- this is my only crafty post, so I’m sorry. Please still stay and read about other things- like the time I tried to do my hair, or the time I worked out.
Ok that’s out of the way- now onward to toot my own horn and give a run down of what’s in the jar in case you can use the info for a favorite teacher.
Things in jar-
-straw(because it’s a water bottle/jar)
– post-it notes
-flowers (because daughter really wanted them to have flowers and I can’t tell her no all the time)
– a little thing for the garden (a bird in one and a sign that says “Forever a Free Spirit” in the other)
-a small picture frame (that’s on the front)
-last, but not least that clear things that is wrapped around the handle- it’s a thing to keep wine cold (or pop, but really wine) after putting it in the freezer. It was supposed to fit inside, but did not.
All this for only $500… I’m joshing. I think it was about $25 to $30 each. If you weren’t doing it last minute (if you aren’t, please come organize my life) and went for things on sale, you could do it much cheaper and much better. I’m still proud.
Also I wanted to add there is so much pressure now. I don’t know how Martha Stewart does it. I feel like I have to go make pies or … Or trade inside… I don’t know… all I’m saying is I have a completely new understanding of what she has been through. All judgment is gone, Martha. *fist bump
