A to Z Challenge - 2019 - J is for Jar

I was walking down the aisle at Michaels one day and I saw this package:


I know jars are a popular item and I immediately thought about turning it into a mini-album about cooking or family recipes.  This is what I came up with: 


There are pages inside so you can add pictures and special stories about those treasured family cooking memories. 


I thought this sentiment worked with the theme.   


I was pleased with how the embellishments came out on the front.  I was even more pleased when someone bought it!


Because I liked the way it turned out, I traced the shapes on cardboard so I could make another one.  It's in my "to be made" pile.  LOL 



Ever been walking down the aisles of Michaels and find something you weren't expecting?  Have any special family recipes you'd like a mini-album for?  Come back tomorrow for "K" and go visit the A to Z family.

    1. Yes, Frederique, that's what I was thinking when I made it. I know there are families out there who pass down recipes from generation to generation and thought this would be a good way to do it! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I thought of a friend of mine who "preserves" precious memories by writing on a piece of paper the cute things her kids say and then putting them inside a canning jar. Seems like your clever craft could also be used for something similar... preserving special memories.

  4. No, I would have seen that jar and thought "What the heck??" but you created the PERFECT thing - a recipe book makes such good sense.

  5. I go (get dragged along?) and look for Native American stuff. But I never find things that are quite what I'd want. Not that my weaving skills are worth mentioning, but I did try to remember some old lessons for an IWSG post once.

    The jar thing is pretty cool. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. You are good. My husband never goes with me...but then again, I probably wouldn't want him to. He can get a bit impatient sometimes and Michaels is not a rush in and rush out kind of store - LOL.
