Yes I did fall through a rabbit hole.
Yes, I did have wayyy too much fun.
Yes, I am back, hooray!
Back with some fresh goodies to share too.
I was craving some fresh labels for sweets jars, so I thought, perfect timing.
With Valentine's day on the horizon, I created some candy inspired labels.
I touched on Valentine's day a little but also wanted to make them usable throughout the year.
I made 9 styles to equal 1 set, and I am hand cutting them all with scalloped edges.
You can get yours here.
It's a fun excuse to go crazy shopping for candy.
And what better time than now when the shops are bursting with sweets at good prices.
I've popped some of these in the shop today, and I've made some jars of my own.
I'm so glad I save peanut butter, jam and spaghetti sauce jars because they always come in handy for projects like this.
You can hot glue all manner of pretty things to the lids.
Crepe paper, doilies, ribbons - you name it.
The stickers are peel and stick, so you just have to apply them to a jar of your choice.
I like to use my favorite scrap ribbon stash for crafts as such.
My sister gave me a stocky wine bottle that I love, so I used it for the Message in a Bottle sticker.
Tied a beautiful old key on it and I'm kinda smitten, I must admit.
You can either keep the jars for yourself, or give each one away.
I used gummy worms on the Love Bugs jar, problem is, I can't stop eating them.
It's crazy, I didn't even know I liked gummy worms :-)
As I was filling my jars the treats were disappearing at lightning speed.
Every time I looked some were missing, hmmm.
Sneaky Mad Hatter I'm sure.
I'm tailoring some of my jars for specific people.
Then I'll keep a few in my kitchen for display.
I love the pink kisses, don't you?
I also made some kid friendly ones with Nerds and tropical chewey type candies.
I had to throw a little Paris in there for good measure.
Pretty jars to keep or share.
I really enjoyed putting on some music and making these.
I have a few more to complete & then I'll start gifting.
Confections a plenty, yummms!
Sweets and pretty things!
Treats and goodies galore!
Here are a few finished up below.
They just make me happy.
Pretty colors and sweets, what more can you ask for?
So, the label sets are now in my Etsy shop, right here.
And, I'm back for some serious fun.
My guests are all gone, I'm not sick anymore, my house is a mess.
And I'm here here here.
Wanna help me clean?
Just kidding :-)
It's sunny and warm and wonderful out.
I had lunch on the front steps.
Trekking hills/mountains is glorious as usual.
I had my first bad fall in 1 year but I trekked on.
The pups are great.
The Hatter is up to his nonsense.
Lots of other special people and stories in my life.
Having so much fun.
How do I get younger in my heart and soul the older I get?
Not sure what's up with that?
But I like it.
How the heck are you???!!
Lots of love,
