Is it Monday already?

Well my friends, school is in full swing now.  I don't mind telling you that I am curious to see how I do with being Mommo, wife, working, keeping some semblance of order in my home (doesn't that go with being Mommo?), and blogging!

I love creating projects, and sharing them with you, so I will do my very best to make it all happen.  It should be entertaining to witness at the very least!

Oh Graphics Fairy! Whatever would I do without your wonderful images? I really do have this crazy commitment to myself that I will create a new project every week in time for Brag Monday.  It just doesn't feel like it would be Monday if I didn't.





My Dolly says it's an obsession, and she might just be right.  I love taking a simple jar and making it terrific.  Karen makes it really easy, especially with these beautiful labels.  I printed it out, inked the edges in brown and used Mod Podge to put it on the jar. Now my paintbrushes have a pretty home. This is definitely one of my favorites!

Have a great Monday!

  2. I love this, Christine! Sometimes the simplest projects turn out the best! What a great way to repurpose a jar. And I really love this label, too!

  3. We are SO stealing this - do you have a fav place to get labels from or do you design them yourself?
    Hello from the hop :)

  4. It looks great! And you will fit it all in, believe me. Our days just seem to expand to accommodate eveything we wish to do and then every now and then we collapse in an exhausted heap before picking ourselves up and starting all over again. Life as we know it! x

  6. Oh I love this image and it looks fantastic on your jar. Being an artist this just calls for me to do! I can just see it on my shelf housing any of my brushes or knitting needles!
