Today's Crafts

I played in my craftroom this afternoon and made quite a few things. I've dubbed my craftroom "My Happy Place". That way, when I say, "Mommy's going to her happy place." I have a place to go. I even made this sign for the door today!
I have seen lots of bloggers out there making apothecary jars from stuff they already have. Love it! I decided to pull out some of my stuff and make myself one for my craftroom shelf. This little jar is one I found at Salvation Army for $.50. The candle stick is from the dollar store years ago.

I used E-6000 glue to attach the two. You can get this in the craft department at Walmart.

Ta Da! How cute is that? Here it is on my shelf. I love the way it turned out.
I also made a few cards today, but you will have to go to my Paper Crafting Obsession blog to see them.
Have a great Sunday night!

That jar is so cute! Using the candle stick as a base is a brilliant idea! I'll have to see what I've got around my house. :0)

Hello, Thank you for coming over to visit me! I love your blog and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your 1.50 apothecary jar. Brilliant! I am going to stop by Goodwill today and try to copy you. :)
That is a very sweet story about your hubby and the scrap-booking store. If men knew how happy those things made us, don't you think they would be in every craft store and tea shop in the U.S.?
Have a wonderful day!

You are just TOO clever! I love that! I saw something a little similar with an old plate and candlestick made into a cake stand. You know I LOVE reusing pretty things! Thanks for stopping by and commenting today. After my soggy start, it was doubly appreciated! Now I am off to try to figure out what they call that neckline of your wedding gown. Boat, maybe?
